Lewis Capaldi slurs words and is muted throughout sweary Brits presenting speech

LEWIS Capaldi turned the air blue tonight at The Brits as he swore and slurred on stage.

Show bosses were forced to drown out the pop star with white noise when he presented the Best British Album gong to Dua Lipa at the O2 Arena.

The Scottish singer kept TV editors on their toes as millions of people tuned in at home.

Having perhaps indulged at the free bar, the Before You Go hitmaker blurted out a few sentences that were peppered with swear words.

The audience inside the O2 - made up of key workers - booed the star but that didn't stop him swearing up a storm.

And he was swearing so much that some slipped through the mute button, including when he said: "Hello mutherf*****s"

At the end of his speech, he added: "Some good s***."

But Lewis, 24, mostly left viewers at home straining to hear what he had to say.

Despite his car crash speech many people at home praised his appearance as being one of the few entertaining moments of the night.

One fan wrote on Twitter: "Just a suggestion for Lewis Capaldi to host next years Brit Awards #BRITs"

Another said: "Hi @LewisCapaldi everyone that watched @BRITs tonight would love to know what you actually said on the show tonight cos there seemed to be a long mute put on it and i think i heard about 5 words from you"

Another said: "Lewis Capaldi is iconic I’m still howling😂 #BRITs"
