Peter Capaldi Almost Stayed On 'Doctor Who'
Peter Capaldi announced he's leaving Doctor Who , we're all still reeling from the vaccuum his departure will create. I've never worked the same job for three years, and I feel like now is the right time to move on.

Emma Willis will be hosting alongside Dermot O'Leary, after Michael Bublé was forced to pull out.

Other radio brands including Heart and Capital Xtra will also post live updates from the awards via Instagram Stories for the first time. "I don't know what else to say, I'm speechless but thank you so much, honestly". Personally speaking, just as long as Radiohead beat Little Mix for the "British Group" award, I'll be happy.
