Ed Sheeran, Adele, and Inflo lead the nominations for the 2022 Ivor Novello Awards.

The Shape of You singer landed three nominations for this year's awards, which honour outstanding songwriting and composing, including Songwriter of the Year and PRS For Music Most Performed Work for Shivers and Bad Habits.

Adele earned two nods, including Songwriter of the Year and Best Song Musically and Lyrically for her comeback single Easy on Me.

Songwriter and producer Dean 'Inflo' Josiah Cover is the most-nominated artist with four mentions, including three in the Best Album category for his work on Cleo Sol's Mother, Sault's Nine and Little Simz's Sometimes I Might Be Introvert.

The remaining Best Album nominees include Laura Mvula's Pink Noise and Spare Ribs by Sleaford Mods.

Other songs competing against Ed's Bad Habits and Shivers for the PRS For Music Most Performed Work award include Bed by Joel Corry, Raye and David Guetta, Elton John and Dua Lipa's Cold Heart, and Tom Grennan's Little Bit Of Love.

Ed and Adele are up against Coldplay, Dave, and Raye for the Songwriter of the Year honour.

The nomination comes a day after a judge ruled the Castle on the Hill hitmaker didn't plagiarise Oh Why by Sam Chokri when he created his 2017 smash hit Shape of You.

The 2022 Ivor Novello Awards take place on 19 May.
