Jess Glynne talks 'surreal' BRIT nominations after receiving three nods

Jess Glynne thinks it's "amazing" that she's up for British Female Solo Artist at the BRIT Awards.

The 26-year-old singer is also nominated for British Breakthrough Act and British Single, and finds the whole thing "very surreal".

Speaking at the announcement of the nominations The BRITs Are Coming, Jess said: "It's very surreal, it's a show that I've watched for as long as I can remember and now I'm nominated. It's amazing!"

She isn't the only singer to receive three nominations for the upcoming ceremony, as Scottish DJ Calvin Harris is also up for three gongs.

Calvin, who is dating singer Taylor Swift, features in the categories of British Male Solo Artist, British Single and British Artist Video of the Year.

Both Calvin and Jess were beaten by British group Years & Years, however, with the band receiving a staggering four nominations for the 2016 awards.

Lead singer Olly Alexander laughed: "Just the 4! I don't believe it, it's crazy!"

The group are up for British Group, British Breakthrough, British Single and British Artist Video of the Year.

Adele continues her incredibly successful musical comeback by also receiving four nominations - for British Female Solo Artist, British Single, MasterCard British Album of the Year and British Artist Video of the Year.

She is also in the running for the BRITs Global Success Award, with the winner of the prize determined by international sales.

Meanwhile, Coldplay could make BRITs history by becoming the most successful artist to win the British Group and the MasterCard British Album of the Year awards.

They are currently tied with the Arctic Monkeys with three wins each in both categories.

The BRITs will be held at London's O2 Arena on February 24.
