Pop megastar Ed Sheeran and TV star Ruby Rose have been unveiled as the co-hosts for this year’s MTV Europe Music Awards in Milan.

Both stars have revealed their excitement at being selected to host the event together, which is being held at the Mediolanum Forum in the northern Italian city on October 25th.

Sheeran announced to his 15 million Twitter followers on Wednesday (September 30th) that he had been picked to present. “So happy to say I'm hosting the #MTVEMAs on 25th October! Cannot wait,” he wrote.

29 year old Ruby Rose, who is best known for playing Stella Carlin in the hit Netflix comedy drama ‘Orange Is The New Black’, also tweeted: “So excited to be hosting the MTV EMAS In Milan with Mr @edsheeran !!! See you there!!”

The promotional poster for the ceremony bills the 2015 EMAs as ‘A Cute and Badass Show’. Sheeran and Rose certainly have a tough act to follow from last year’s awards, which was hosted by Nicki Minaj and ended up being the most widely distributed edition of the ceremony in its history, according to MTV.

It’s very likely that Sheeran – up for three awards himself during the course of the evening – will be handing out at least one trophy to his friend Taylor Swift, after it was announced last month that she had been nominated for a record-breaking nine awards.

Best Female is the category many people are looking at with an eye to possible controversy and name-calling, as recent rivals Miley Cyrus and Nicki Minaj are both nominated, as well as Swift. The pair traded insults at August’s MTV Video Music Awards, which 22 year old Cyrus hosted.

“And now back to this b**** that had a lot to say to me in the press. What's good?,” Minaj said onstage as she accepted her award for Best Hip Hop Video. The former Disney star retaliated, saying: “We are all in this industry, we all do interviews and we all know how they manipulate s**t. Nicki congratulations.”
