Girl group Little Mix are on the hunt for a handful of awards at the Brits after being named in three categories. Up for British Single with 'Shout Out To My Ex', British Group and British Artist Video with 'Hair', the former X Factor contestants look set to enjoy an exciting evening on Wednesday.

Skepta holds the fort for the men with a trio of nominations himself. After enjoying a thrilling year, he has opportunities to take home British Breakthrough Artist, British Male Solo Artist and British Album of the Year for Konnichiwa.

Video and Single double a possibility for several artists

British Artist Video and British Single form familiar playlists with several songs nominated for both categories. The number one seller on the list, Calvin Harris and Rihanna's 'This is What You Came For', is joined by Clean Bandit and Sean Paul's 'Rockabye', Coldplay's 'Hymn for the Weekend', James Arthur's 'Say You Won't Let Go', Tinie Tempah's 'Girls Like' and Zayn's 'Pillow Talk'.

The late David Bowie has the biggest selling album of the year on the nomination list and has also been put forward in the British Male Solo Artist category. Drake topped the bill for biggest single across the globe and he is nominated for a double of International Male Solo Artist and International Group.

Global names battle it out

Bruno Mars will challenge Drake for International Male Solo Artist, whilst two of the World's most recognised divas in Beyonce and Rihanna battle it out for International Female Solo Artist.

Tried and tested acts Kings of Leon and Radiohead look to challenge for International Group and British Group respectively, whilst Ellie Goulding and Emelie Sande head a somewhat unfamiliar British Female Solo Artist list.

Craig David returns with a nomination in the British Male Solo Artist category, whilst Stormzy has enjoyed an incredible year and will be a serious contender for British Breakthrough Act.

Adele was the big winner last year with four gongs but has only been nominated in one category this time around with her single 'Send My Love' up for British Artist Video. Coldplay took home British Group twelve months ago and are the only other act nominated for a second consecutive year, albeit in different categories.
