A HEREFORDSHIRE music producer has gone to a Wetherspoon pub to celebrate his Brit Awards nomination – but admitted he probably made a big mistake.

220 Kid, who grew up in Weobley and has been championed by BBC Music Introducing in Herefordshire and Worcestershire, remixed Nathan Evans's viral sea shanty track with Billen Ted.

He went on to top the charts with Wellerman, made popular by Scottish TikTok postman Nathan Evans.

And now that track has been shortlisted for Song of the Year at the 2022 Brit Awards.

Among the other 14 tracks shortlisted are Adele's Easy On Me, Ed Sheeran's Bad Habits and Elton John and Dua Lipa's Cold Heart (Pnau Mix).

To celebrate the news on December 18, 220 Kid, whose real name is William Graydon, went to the Royal Victoria Pavilion pub in Ramsgate, Kent – the biggest Wetherspoon in the world.

But after sharing his table number on Twitter so people could use the pub chain's app to buy him drinks, things stopped going to plan.

In a TikTok video, 220 Kid, 32, revealed there were 99 orders waiting.

He then tweeted: "This may have been a terrible mistake.

"The manager has told me they are not legally allowed to serve me this many drinks haha."

But the track, Wellerman, climbed to the charts' top spot in March after seven consecutive weeks in the top three.

It dethroned Olivia Rodrigo’s Drivers License after nine weeks at the summit.

Producer 220 Kid, whose real name is William Graydon, added: “Official number one single. I can’t believe it. It’s a dream come true.

"No matter how much goes wrong, or how many obstacles you reach, as long as you overcome them, you will eventually get there.

"The support on this record has been unbelievable. It’s really been magical. Thank you so much.”

It is the second year in a row 220 Kid has been shortlisted at the Brit Awards.

At the 2021 awards, his track Don't Need Love, made with singer Gracey, was beaten to the Best Single award by former One Direction member Harry Styles with Watermelon Sugar.
