Actor James Corden has criticised some of the "horrible" people who attended the Brit Awards while he was hosting the ceremony.

Corden has hosted the annual awards ceremony for the past four years, with this year's event being his last following his announcement to step down from the central position. Speaking about his experiences of being in charge of the event on Michael McIntyre's BBC1 chat show, Corden is critical of some of the people who sit on the tables at the event.

"It was horrid," Corden tells McIntyre, in an episode which will air tonight (April 14). "It is so much fun the week leading up to it and you get to see the bands, and then it is live and you are in this room full of people that don't listen to anything you say. People who beg for a ticket turn up and pretend they are too cool to be there. They are all chatting, drinking and eating.

Describing how these people affect the job of presenting the ceremony, Corden continues: "It doesn't feel like there is a TV show going on, it feels like a big social function being watched by the rest of people in the arena. You are doing it and people are walking past you, they know it is on TV."

However, the Gavin & Stacey actor admits he will miss not doing the job. "I enjoyed doing it and I'm sure when it comes around in February I will miss being part of it."

Radio 1 DJ Nick Grimshaw and comedian Jack Whitehall have both been linked to Corden's role ahead of the 2015 Brit Awards.
