The streaming platform tipped the two for success in the British Male and British Female categories based on the amount of streams the two have amassed in the past 12 months when compared to their competitors.

Ed's racked up nearly 1.7 billion Spotify streams, which is more than double his nearest competitor Sam Smith, who's nothced up 800 million streams for tracks from debut album 'In The Lonely Hour'.

Ella meanwhile has 100 million streams for her debut single 'Ghost' alone.

Elsewhere, Coldplay are the world's most streamed band on the service, and look set to beat off One Direction, Clean Bandit, Alt J and Royal Blood.

Spotify's data suggests a win will happen for Sam Smith in the British Breakthrough category, whilst John Legend could take International Male and Beyoncé could take International Female, with 5 Seconds of Summer claiming International Group.

The data also suggests that Clean Bandit's smash hit single 'Rather Be' featuring Jess Glynne could scoop the British Single gong after taking 294 million streams, closely followed by Sam Smith's 'Stay With Me' with 253 million, Calvin Harris' 'Summer' with 252 million and Ed Sheeran's 'Thinking Out Loud' with 224 million plays.
