The contenders for this year’s Brit Awards have been announced.

Next month, the 43rd Brit Awards ceremony is due to be held at London’s O2 Arena, with Mo Gilligan returning as host for the second consecutive year, and the event taking place on a Saturday night for the first time.

As ever, the Brits will be honouring the biggest achievements in music across the past 12 months, both here in the UK and internationally, with the nominees announced on Thursday afternoon.

Harry Styles and Wet Leg are leading the way with four nominations each, while rapper Stormzy, dance producer Fred Again.. and rock groups The 1975 and Arctic Monkeys are each on three.

Singer-songwriter Cat Burns has also received two more nominations, in addition to being shortlisted for the Rising Star title.

Meanwhile, the recipients of this year’s Rising Star prize have already been revealed, with up-and-coming girl group Flo making history as the first band to win the title.

This year marks the second time the Brits has done away with gendered categories, merging the Male and Female categories into the new Best British Artist and Best International Artist awards.

As with last year’s ceremony, four genre-specific categories – Best Pop/R&B Act, Best Dance Act, Best Rock/Alternative Act and Best Hip-Rop/Rap/Grime act – have also been introduced in a bid to make sure a greater array of British talent is recognised at the event.
