Singer Jess Glynne has joked that she will be next to fall on the Brit Awards stage - the scene of Madonna's famous tumble last year.

The star, who has received three nominations, is performing at next month's ceremony and says she is "already nervous".

Reflecting on Madonna's on-stage fall which made headlines around the world, Glynne said the Material Girl singer is one of her biggest inspirations, and added that she herself may fall over when she takes to the stage.

"I mean it'll probably be me this year. Jess falls flat on face," she joked.

Asked if she is inspired by her fellow female solo artists, Glynne said she is inspired by so many musicians.

"Madonna is a massive inspiration. The fact that she fell down and stood straight back up and carried on. Not many people could do that," she said.

Madonna struggled to undo her flowing Armani cape during her performance last year and the pop superstar was accidentally pulled down a set of steps by one of her dancers.

Glynne, 26, is nominated in the categories of British female solo artist, British breakthrough act and British single for Hold My Hand.

Asked how she feels about the three nods, she said: "A bit weird. It's all a bit surreal. I'm very grateful and very excited and very wow."
