Dua Lipa, Arlo Parks, and Celeste are among the acts leading all nominees for the 2021 BRIT Awards, scoring three mentions apiece.

They join Young T & Bugsey and Joel Corry as the triple award threats, with Dua, Arlo, and Celeste all competing for Female Solo Artist and Album of the Year.

This year's ceremony will take place at London's O2 Arena on 11 May, with performances by Dua Lipa and Griff confirmed.

Parks has taken to Twitter to rave about her three nods, writing: "All I know is that I wouldn't be here without my team, my family, every single person who's played my tunes in their cars, bedrooms, kitchens & living rooms.

"I take none of this for granted I hope you know that. What a moment... all words are escaping me right now except for thank you. From sketchy demos on my £30 mic in my basement to the BRITs - dreams come true."

Yungblud, who is up for Male Solo Artist, alongside Corry, J Hus, Headie One, and AJ Tracey, also posted on social media, writing: "i have watched the brits every year since i can remember. its what makes the British music scene so rock n roll. I would watch oasis and the artic monkeys cause trouble and i always wanted to be there and now to be nominated is mental (sic)!!!"
