A Worcestershire pop star is celebrating after receiving a Brit Award nomination.

Harry Styles and Wet Leg lead the nominations at the 2023 music awards, but there is a local name to cheer for as well.

Bewdley's own Becky Hill is in the running for the best dance act.

The award is one of four debuting at this year's awards which will be voted for by the public via Tik Tok.

Hill took to Instagram to celebrate the news.

Photos of her looking simply stunned were captioned: "ME FINDING OUT IM NOMINATED FOR BRITS BEST DANCE ACT AGAIN!!!!

"Wow I’m so honoured and so in shock.

"Guys I need your help, it is you and only you that helped me win last year and I need your incredible force once more!!!

Mark Kinchen, known as MK, commented: "Why are u even surprised Beck?"

And Ashley Roberts from the Pussycat Dolls added: "Congrats chica!"

Becky will be competing for the award with Calvin Harris, Eliza Rose, Fred Again and Bonobo.

The nominations were announced by BBC Radio 1 presenters Vick Hope and Jack Saunders during a live stream on the official Brits social media channels.

The duo also enlisted the help of Olympian Tom Daley and Euro 2022 and I’m A Celebrity winner Jill Scott for the reveal.

Former One Direction star Harry Styles capped off a successful 12 months by earning nods for album of the year for Harry’s House, song of the year for As It Was, artist of the year and best pop/R&B act.

Meanwhile, Isle of Wight duo Wet Leg, comprised of Rhian Teasdale and Hester Chambers, are nominated for album of the year for their chart-topping self-titled debut, which won plaudits for its sardonic lyrics and angular riffs.

They also received nods for group of the year, best new artist and best alternative rock act, as the awards entered a second year with gender-neutral categories.

“Somebody hold our horses while we get to grips with this wild news, being nominated for a Brit Award is too hard to comprehend, we never could have expected for our wee band to achieve this,” they said.
