Nick said: "We at BBC Radio 1Xtra have for years championed new artists coming through.

"Since we started doing Hot For, we have seen the likes of Stormzy, Krept & Konan, J Hus and many others make the list then go on to become superstars.

"I'm honoured and excited to announce the line-up for this year."

DJ Target will host a special show featuring interviews and tracks from some of the artists on the 2018 list on Monday night from 7pm to 9pm.
