The MTV VMAs is one of the biggest music events in the calendar – but to watch the action from the UK it’s going to be a late one.

The MTV VMAs is taking place this Sunday, but watching it from the UK makes for a very tricky time-zone difference.

With the show being held live in New York, fans hoping to see a glimpse of the likes of Doja Cat, Justin Bieber, Olivia Rodrigo and Billie Eilish, will have to stay up late to watch it if based in the UK.
