“It is nice that people know what we do as we work so hard for it.”

This year pair released a cover of the Charlie Chaplin classic ‘Smile’ raising money for cancer battler Bradley Lowery, who sadly died in July.

The song was played on national radio stations, reaching Number 4 in the VodaFone Big Top 40 chart.

The track is believed to have raised thousands for The Bradley Lowery Foundation which aims to support other ill children and their families.

Alongside this the singers have also released an original song called ‘Over You’ and travelled throughout the UK performing alongside some amazing acts including Matt Terry, Stooshe and Megan Dhalai.

Georgia added: “We just want to say that we are really thankful for being nominated.

“We have never been nominated for anything before, so it is nice that people are recognising what we are doing and to see that all of our hard work is paying off.

“Loads of amazing people have been nominated for these awards, so it is lovely that we are going to be going up alongside them.”
