In true Capaldi fashion he swigged from a bottle of beer as he marched up to the stage to collect his first statuette.

His good pal Niall Horan, in a dapper purple suit, met him with a hug and handed over the prize.

There was confusion at home though when Lewis's short acceptance speech was muted.

The singer downed his beer and actually said: "Thank you very f***ing much" before leaving the stage.

His second gong was presented by Sir Tom Jones, and this time Lewis had a different bottle of booze in his hand: Buckfast.

He couldn't resist pointing out that, contrary to popular belief, his hit Someone You Loved wasn't written about Love Island's Paige, who Lewis used to date.

It is in fact about his late grandma, but rather than dwell on the sad origins of the song, he made it into a joke about the ITV2 reality show.

US superstar Billie Eilish was lost for words as she scooped Best International Female, beating Lizzo and Ariana Grande.

She paid tribute to her fellow singers after picking up the award from a delighted Mel C.

Billie said London was her "second home" and teared up when she revealed she "felt hated" recently.

Stormzy took home Best Solo Male in a talent-packed field including Harry Styles and Lewis Capaldi.

Tyler The Creator won Best International Male and dedicated his prize to former Prime Minister Theresa May after he was temporarily banned from the UK last year.

Mabel picked up her first ever Brit for Best Female and was given a big hug by her mum Neneh Cherry.

Foals picked up Best Group ahead of Coldplay and Bastille, while Dave's Psychodrama won Album Of The Year.

The musician delivered a politically charged performance of his track Black.

He rapped: "And if somebody hasn't said it, equality is a right, it doesn't deserve credit. If you don't wanna get it, then you're never gonna get it. How the news treats Kate versus how they're treating Megan.

"It is racist, whether or not it feels racist. The truth is our Prime Minister is a real racist."

The ceremony was ended by a medley from Sir Rod Stewart, who teamed up with his Faces bandmate Ronnie Wood to mark the band's 50th anniversary.
