Michael Buble has pulled out of hosting next month’s Brit Awards in order to look after his son who is suffering from liver cancer.
According to The Sun, the 41-year old has told bosses he will miss what would have been the biggest role of his career in order to focus on saving the life of 3-year-old Noah.
The insider continued: 'It was a difficult call but Michael has decided to pull out of hosting the Brit Awards.
"Out of respect for Michael the producers gave him as much time as he needed to make the decision, which they completely understood."
The source added that potential replacements as host for the ceremony in London’s O2 Arena on February 22 are being discussed.
Buble previously confirmed the news that he was presenting the awards back in October when he took to Instagram to share a snap of himself holding a placard with the Brit Awards logo on it.
“Soooo…… ummm… yeah. I’m frickin’ hosting the @brits!! I’ve got some big shoes to fill. Four of ‘em,” he captioned the pic.
