Phil Clifton

Meet the host, Phil Clifton

There's a new face here at, as we reveal the new face of the BRITs backstage, Phil Clifton.

A former presenter on XFM, Phil made his name presenting the Early Breakfast Show in 2009 and was nominated for a Sony Rising Award and being quickly promoted to the Weekend Breakfast show.

He soon made his move to TV presenting for MTV on their chart content before setting up home on The Official Rock Chart, which has been a rating's smash across MTV Europe.

Phil made his terrestrial debut hosting the 'Backstage Show' for Channel 5's 'Don't Stop Believing' and soon moved to co-host Channel 4's morning music show Freshly Squeezed alongside Jameela Jamil, Matt Edmondson and Georgie Okell.

We're pleased to be working with Phil here at and we look forward to taking you to the awards, backstage and down the red carpet very soon - all starting with January's nominations event on 12 January.
