    Singer-songwriter Jessie Ware has been nominated for two Brit awards.

    The former JC intern, 26, is up for Best Female Solo Artist and British Breakthrough Act.

    Ms Ware, who has received worldwide support for her Devotion album, said: “Canny believe it – very happy to be up for two [awards].”

    Amy Winehouse is also up for a posthumous award for best British female. Ms Winehouse won the award in 2007 for her Back to Black album.

    Alex Clare, 27, is also up for a Best British Single for his song “Too Close” which reached number four on the UK Singles Chart and featured in a Microsoft advert. He said he was "truly honoured".

    Golders Green-based Mr Clare, who once dated Ms Winehouse, is observant. He does not perform on Shabbat and often travels to Jerusalem.

    The Brit award 2013 winners will be announced next month at the O2 ceremony.
