Holly Humberstone has been announced as the winner of this year’s BRITs Rising Star award, ahead of Bree Runway and Lola Young. As well as her trophy, she also secures a performance slot at the main awards ceremony in February.

“I remember watching the BRITs with my parents each year and being totally awestruck by the artists coming together in what felt like another universe”, she says. “Now to be named the BRITs Rising Star and nominated alongside two other incredible women, with the songs that started within those four walls at home is so mad. It just doesn’t feel real”.

“This year has been a wild ride and a year of firsts, and I am so grateful and thankful for everyone who has helped make this happen”, she adds.

Last month, Humberstone released her second EP, ‘The Walls Are Way Too Thin’, and has just completed a headline tour of the UK and Ireland.

The main BRIT Awards ceremony will take place on 8 Feb.
