He will compete with four debut albums for the prize with Stormzy, J Hus, Lipa and Rag'N'Bone Man also nominated for the night's biggest prize.

Taking the prize for British Female Solo Artist, Dua made her way to the stage to give an impassioned speech.

She added: "Here's to more women on these stages, more women winning awards and more women taking over the world".

The 27-year-old is also running against Dua Lipa for the best video award.

The singer, who is always a favorite at the Brit Awards, delivered a vulnerable, tear-jerking rendition of the touching song, only accompanied by a piano, guitar and eventual backup vocals from a choir.

Three-time nominee Ed Sheeran is at Number 2 with ÷, Rag'n'Bone Man - also up for three gongs - is set to return to the Top 10 with Human, now up three to 9, and Taylor Swift - nominated for the International Female prize, rebounds nine spots to 11 with Reputation.

Attendees will be given a white rose badge before they take to the red carpet in the latest award show protest since the Harvey Weinstein scandal rocked Hollywood a year ago.

Calls for change have swept through the entertainment industry since women began coming forward to accuse Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein a year ago.

Nominees for the 2018 BRIT Awards are scaling the Official Albums Chart ahead of this week's ceremony on Wednesday (Feb 21).

All three are also set to perform, along with Justin Timberlake, Rita Ora and Foo Fighters.

The white pin protest comes after Sunday night's Bafta Film Awards where the red carpet was turned black in an orchestrated move which also saw activists join stars at the event.
