    George Ezra, Fearne Cotton, and Peter Crouch are among the nominees for the British Podcast Awards 2019

    The ‘Paradise’ hitmaker, radio host, and professional soccer star have all been nominated for the Spotlight Award at the annual award ceremony, which will be held at Kings Place in King’s Cross, London, on Saturday May 18

    George, Fearne, and Peter will battle it out in their category - which honours the podcasts that have resonated with the public and taken the medium mainstream - against the likes of Giovanna Fletcher, Katie Piper, and BBC’s ‘Fortunately… with Fi and Jane’.

    Radio host Chris Moyles also received a nomination for his ‘The Chris Moyles Show on Radio X Podcast’ which is up for Best Radio Podcast, whilst the likes of Will Young, Elizabeth Day and Anna Williamson are all contenders for the Best Interview category for their podcasts ‘Homo Sapiens’, ‘Breaking Mum and Dad: The Podcast’ and ‘How To Fail’.

    Dustin Lance Black - who welcomed his son Robert into the world nine months ago with his spouse Tom Daley - is also up a gong for Best Family Podcast thanks to his work on ‘Surrogacy: A Family Frontier’.

    Bagging the most nominations this year is George The Poet’s podcast ‘Have You Heard George’s Podcast’, which is in the running in six categories, including Acast Moment of the Year, Best New Podcast, Best Arts & Culture, Best Current Affairs, Best Fiction and Smartest Podcast.
