Little Mix have earned four nominations on the star-studded shortlist for next year's Global Awards.

The girl band, which features Jade Thirlwall and Perrie Edwards from South Shields among its members, won three honours at the inaugural Global ceremony in March of this year, and could be on course for further success.

Fellow nominees on the list of only the second Global Awards include international superstars Lady Gaga, Drake and Ariana Grande.

"We will bring together every Global radio brand to celebrate the biggest stars of music, news and entertainment in the UK and across the world.

"We can't wait to crown our winners and welcome some of the world's greatest artists to the stage at one of the biggest nights in the music and entertainment calendar."
