Other stars nominated include Rod Stewart, Alison Hammond Emma Watson, RuPaul’s Drag Race judge UK and Patrick Stewart who are all up for the Celebrity Ally Award, along with Harry and Alison. 

England stars and Euro 2022 winners Leah Williamson, Beth Mead and Jill Scott are all in the running for the Swinton Insurance Sports Personality of the Year award alongside teammate Demi Stokes and pundit Alex Scott.

Actors Billy Porter, Emma Corrin and Luke Evans will go head-to-head in the coveted Sky UK LGBT+ Celebrity of the Year accolade alongside the likes of Rebel Wilson, Sara Ramirez and Yasmin Finney. 

Graham Norton, Sue Perkins, Paul O’Grady, RuPaul Charles and Gok Wan have all been nominated in the Broadcaster, Journalist or Host category. 

Jack Rooke’s Big Boys on Channel 4, Ncuti Gatwah and Yasmin Finney on Doctor Who and Alex Scott’s One Love armband tribute in Qatar are also in the running for the Media Moment prize – won by Johannes Radebe and John Whaite last year for their Strictly Come Dancing same-sex partnership. 

Joe Lycett is up for Media Moment of the Year after capturing the world’s attention last year when he threatened to shred £10,000 in cash unless football legend David Beckham cancelled his deal with Qatar. 

The comedian’s actions came as a protest against the fact homosexuality is illegal in the Middle Eastern Nation with questions also being raised over the deaths of workers helping to build stadiums to the event. 

David failed to respond to the threat and Joe subsequently posted a video of himself shredding the money. 

It garnered huge attention, only for Joe to reveal that the money coming out of the shredder was fake and he had donated the cash to Stonewall’s Rainbow Laces campaign and Sport Allies. 

Sarah Garrett, MBE, British LGBT Awards founder, said: ‘It is more important than ever that we shine a light on those who have stood shoulder-to-shoulder with the LGBT+ community, during what has been another very challenging 12 months for the community.
