Ed Sheeran, Liam Payne, Dua Lipa and Stormzy are among the nominees for this year’s Brit Awards, Britain’s most prestigious music prize.

Sheeran is in the running in four categories — British male solo artist, best video and single (for “Shape of You”) and best album.

Former One Direction star Liam Payne is nominated for best single and video for “Strip That Down”, which has now been a hit in the UK, Australia and US.

The highest number of nominations was received by singer Dua Lipa, whose single “New Rules” was a break out hit last year. She is nominated in five categories including best album, best female and best single.
