A number of awards will be available throughout the evening, however, as always the most celebrated of them all will be the sports personality award itself, which England goalkeeper Mary Earps is currently the favourite for.

Earps, who saved a penalty as the Lionesses made it to the World Cup final in Australia, is slightly ahead of the recently retired Stuart Broad in the betting odds and - should she win - it will be the second England Women's player in succession to life the award after Beth Mead's victory at the awards last year.

If the Manchester United goalkeeper was to take the award this year, it would be the third woman to win the award in a row following Mead and, in 2021, Emma Raducanu's success.
