The south London musician - who frequently references his mum, Jean, on his debut album - was shortlisted in the best British solo male and best breakthrough artist categories.

Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Zayn are up against each other in the British Artist Video category, an award they won together four times as One Direction.

Meanwhile Dua Lipa, 22, has five nominations including best British female solo artist, where she will battle it out against 2015 victor Paloma Faith, rapper-poet Kate Tempest, Jessie Ware and Laura Marling.

Paloma Faith said she was "over the moon" with her best British female solo artist nomination in a video, while afrobeats rapper J Hus tweeted he was "gassed" with three nods.

Sheeran's Divide album emulated Dua Lipa's score minus the breakthrough act, which he no longer qualifies for. Grime star Stormzy, singer Rag'N'Bone Man and rapper J Hus join her and Sheeran for the best album prize.

The victor of the British Artist Video award will be decided by the public, with one of the 10 acts eliminated each week until there are only five left on the night of the awards.

Those competing for the gong, include Calvin Harris, Clean Bandit, Jonas Blue, Little Mix, Ed Sheeran, Dua Lipa and Anne-Marie.

Foo Fighters - who are confirmed to perform at this year's ceremony - are up against Arcade Fire, The Killers, LCD Soundstyem and HAIM for best global band.

Speaking on the red carpet, Liam Payne told BANG Showbiz: "It's really great and there are some great artists in those categories as well".

"To be one of the people who are mentioned among these names..."

The show featured performances from Liam, Paloma, Clean Bandit, J Hus and 2018 Critics' Choice victor Jorja Smith.

The 2018 Brit Awards will take place 21 February at the O2 Arena in London, and the categories video of the year and breakthrough act are open to voting at the official website.
