Dame Vera Lynn has been nominated for the Classic Brits, as the ceremony returns from a five-year hiatus.

The 101-year-old is up for best female and best album, and will also receive a lifetime achievement prize at the show.

Britain’s Got Talent winner Tokio Myers has three nominations; while film composer Hans Zimmer is listed three times in the best soundtrack list – for Blue Planet, Dunkirk and Blade Runner.

The Classic Brits also recognise the rising importance video game scores, with a nomination for cellist Tina Guo, whose recent album Game On features music from The Legend of Zelda and Final Fantasy.

It follows the re-introduction of a video game category at last week’s Ivor Novello songwriting awards – where the soundtracks for Hellblade, Horizon: Zero Dawn and Life is Strange all received nominations.

The Classic Brits were originally founded in 2000, as a way of showcasing Britain’s rich heritage of classic and orchestral Brits.

There are multiple nominations for the likes of Sheridan Smith, Michael Ball & Alfie Boe and Pointless star Alexander Armstrong – who will co-present the awards with Myleene Klass.

A trained pianist, said snobbery had no place at the ceremony, telling the BBC every artist had worked hard for their nomination.
