Ed Sheeran is to co-host the 2015 MuchMusic Video Awards in Toronto on June 21.

The six-time Grammy award winner made the announcement during a broadcast of The Roast of Justin Bieber on The Comedy Network here. Sheeran has already appeared at the MMVAs, Canadian TV's block party, four times.

"I’m thrilled they asked me to host this year. I hope this isn't an early April Fool's joke," he said in a statement.

The 2015 MuchMusic Video Awards, to air on the MuchMusic cable channel, will make additional talent and hosting lineup announcements in the coming weeks. Past performers have included Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, Taylor Swift, Psy and Ariana Grande.
