The famous comedian and BRIT Awards presenter Jack Whitehall has officially announced his departure from the show that he has been hosting for four long years!
Jack Whitehall was an excellent and much loved host of The BRIT Awards but he recently took to his Twitter handle to reveal the shocking news to the fans.
Why Is Jack Leaving?
As the new season of The BEIT Awards was announced to go live on February 08, 2022, Jack Whitehall had some personal announcements to make.
He said in the tweet âSad to say after 4 brilliant years, Iâll be handing on the baton as Iâll be in the US filming another project at the top of next year. Loved doing it so much. All the best to the new host, I pray they treat Mursy, my mixers and sweet little Nialler with the respect they deserve.â
It has been made obvious through his tweet that there are no personal grudges or misunderstanding that caused Jack to leave the show rather it is his busy schedule due to filming commitments in the US.
