Brit Awards 2021 LIVE – Latest arrivals and predictions as Coldplay headline and nominees include Dua Lipa and J Hus

The Brit Awards are back TONIGHT (May 11) after a turbulent year for the events industry.

A live audience of 4,000 people will be allowed to attend the event this evening, held at the O2 Arena in London, which kicks off at 8pm BST.

The Brit Awards 2021 are the first event to welcome back a live crowd, as part of a research program used by the Government to examine the risks of Covid-19 transmission at events.

Comedian Jack Whitehall is returning to host with Mastercard, after hosting successfully for the past three years.

Coldplay will headline the ceremony, with other performers including Dua Lipa, Rag’n’Bone Man, P!nk, Griff, Olivia Rodrigo and Arlo Parks.

Harry Styles, Celeste, Dua Lipa and Joel Corry are just a few of the main nominees for this year's award ceremony.
