If you’re more of a 6 Music listener than a Radio 1 fan, you’re unlikely to be familiar with most of the nominees but you could treat tonight as a crash-course in 2020s pop and then amaze your younger workmates with your new-found knowledge on Monday! But proving the more the world changes, the more it stays the same, Kylie Minogue will receive the Global Icon Award and Blur are up for British Group and British Album gongs.

In this new six-part series, Susan takes us on a tour of UK cities to show how they were built. First up, she’s off to Liverpool and, while our minds are blown that it’s her first trip here, hers is blown when she learns that her literary hero, Charles Dickens, visited the city to research his iconic characters. Susan also discovers what great Liverpool FC manager Bill Shankly was really like, and learns how a rival team got close to his heart.
