"I want every Brit Awards to have keyworkers in the audience," he said to the camera.

"These guys know how to have fun.

"It's not just the keyworkers who are in the room this evening.

"The suites and boxes in the O2 are full so let's give it up for the corporate..."

The sound was then turned down on Jack, with a sign coming up on-screen which read "audio muted".

But fans were able to lip-read Jack had said "corporate w*****s".

He carried on: "...for the essential work that they do as well."

Fearing he may be sacked over the outburst, Jack added: "Ok, that's probably the moment that I don't get asked back next year."

He then got the giggles reading the autocue to introduce the next performer.

But it wasn't the most outrageous moment of Jack's time presenting tonight's show.

He made swipes at a whole host of famous faces - including Laurence Fox, Olly Murs and Little Mix.

In the must brutal of jibes, he hilariously hurled insults Rita Ora for her illegal party in the Covid pandemic and Piers Morgan being forced off Good Morning Britain.
