BRIT Awards 2022: Courteney Cox and her boyfriend Johnny McDaid arrive at hotel ahead of the star-studded ceremony

Courteney Cox cut a casual figure as she arrived at a hotel alongside her boyfriend Johnny McDaid ahead of the BRIT Awards in London on Tuesday.

The actress, 57, is currently in the UK promoting her new series Shining Vale and decided to attend the awards with her Snow Patrol beau, 45.

The Friends star donned a black blazer for the evening which she wore over a black top with a white floral print.

Adding height to her frame with a matching pair of boots, Courteney also carried a black handbag.

Letting her brunette locks fall loose down her shoulders, the actress appeared in good spirits as she geared up for the show.

Courteney and Johnny began dating back in 2013 and announced their engagement the following year.

They called off the engagement in 2019 but have stayed together.

It’s set to be a big night for British music, with Adele and Ed Sheeran leading the 2022 BRIT Awards nominations, with an impressive four nods each.

Joining Adele and Ed with four nominations are Little Simz and Dave, who along with Sam Fender, will battle it out for the inaugural Artist of the Year award at the ceremony which airs at 8pm on ITV and will be hosted by Mo Gilligan for the first time.

The ceremony, in association with Mastercard, sees the most female artists nominated in over a decade, however, they are still outnumbered three to two by male nominees.

It comes after The Brit Awards sparked controversy after scrapping male and female categories and switching to gender-neutral gongs for the first time in its history, causing naysayers to brand the event ‘woke’.

Sam Fender, Central Cee, David Guetta are up for three awards on the night, while Doja Cat, Olivia Rodrigo, Billie Eilish, Lil Nas X are each nominated for two prizes and will go up against Taylor Swift for International Artist of the Year award. 

Elsewhere, there are plenty of artist who’ve been double nominated for the 2022 ceremony including Becky Hill, Coldplay, Dua Lipa, Glass Animals, Griff, Joel Corry, Joy Crookes and KSI.

While Little Mix, Måneskin, Raye, Tom Grennan and Wolf Alice are also recognised twice.

Little Mix’s nomination comes weeks after the girls decided to take an extended break to concentrate on solo efforts, with their nods being the first time they’ve been nominated as a trio since Jesy Nelson quit last December.

They’ll be hoping to emulate their success from last year, where they won Best Group for the first time and also became the first ever female group to do so.

Other artists hoping to win big on the night include ABBA, AJ Tracey, Anne-Marie, Drake, Elton John, Ghetts, London Grammar and The Weeknd.
