She said: “I remember watching the British with my parents every year and being completely amazed by the artists coming together in what feels like another universe.

‘It just feels unreal. This year has been a wild ride and a first, and I am so grateful and grateful to everyone who helped make this happen! ‘

Holly, whose debut EP Falling Asleep At The Wheel was released last year, was shortlisted for the award along with Bree Runway and Lola Young.
