Liam is up for British Artist Video Of The Year and British Single of the Year and is thrilled that his solo career is off to such a promising start.

He already has six wins and 17 nominations as part of Oasis, including an Outstanding Contribution to Music Award in 2007 and BRITs Album of 30 Years in 2010, but this is his first ever nomination as a solo artist. Grime star Stormzy, singer Rag'N'Bone Man and rapper J Hus join her and Sheeran for the best album prize.

Taylor Swift, Lorde, Bjork, Pink and Alicia Keys are all nominated for best global female while actor Donald Glover's musical alter-ego, Childish Gambino, earns a nod in the best worldwide male category.

Foo Fighters - who will perform at the 38th Brits next month - are nominated for best global group alongside fellow USA acts Haim, The Killers and LCD Soundsystem, as well as Canadian group Arcade Fire. "I have never written down that number, I have never had the need", Payne said backstage at an event to announce the nominees in London.

'I built this little bar, well I bought the tools, ' Liam told Bang Showbiz.

And on going head-to-head with Harry and Zayn, he said: "No it's fantastic". We all needed a break, it got a bit insane at one point. "There is always time for us to come back, we have that". And there are plenty of Londoners in the other categories - among them little Mix - up for Video of the Year, and Paloma Faith who's up for British female solo artist.

Last year's victor Rag'n'Bone Man handed over the Critics' Choice award to Jorja Smith, who said: "I can not believe it, it's been an unforgettable 2017 during which I've fulfilled so many of my dreams and this is such a special way to end the year. and to be part of an all female shortlist alongside Mabel and Stefflon Don, who've both had incredible 2017s, makes it even better!"

The Brit Awards will take place on February 21 at London's O2 Arena.
