Lewis Capaldi and Dave were among the big winners at a male-dominated Brit Awards.
Glasweigan singer Capaldi took home the song of the year and best new artist awards, while Dave won the coveted album of the year gong for Psychodrama.
And the Scot took to the stage to accept his second gong of the night gripping a bottle of Buckfast.

When you attempt to interview @LewisCapaldi but he feeds you Buckfast, hands you a #BritAward and sings your song to you instead 😂 “Take it Charlotte, it belongs to you” haaahaaa pic.twitter.com/Y2DnnOrDie

Accepting his best new artist award, Capaldi took a beer up on stage with him.
Returning to the spotlight to pick up his Song of the Year award from Sir Tom Jones, he took a bottle of the tonic wine up.
Sir Tom tweeted after the awards ceremony: “It was a joy to present #BRITs Song of the Year award last night to Lewis Capaldi for Someone You Loved, a beautiful tune and thoroughly deserved! (Not sure about the Buckfast though).”
Capaldi and Dave led the nominations prior to the ceremony, with both artists securing four nominations in the same categories.
No women won any of the awards which were not gender-specific after securing just four nominations out of a possible 25 in the categories.
After picking up the male solo artist award, Stormzy paid tribute to the women in his team.
He said: “To be the best male, I have got the most incredible females in my team.
“You lot are the greatest, the best male is nothing without the best females. I love you guys.
“To every single person who supported me, I love you. Thank you guys.”
It is only the fifth time best male has been won by a non-white artist.
The show featured performances from artists including Billie Eilish, Capaldi, Dave, Stormzy and Sir Rod Stewart.
Mabel, who won the best female artist gong, opened the show at the O2 Arena with her song Don’t Call Me Up.
She said that it felt like a “full-circle” moment after her mother musician Neneh Cherry performed at the ceremony decades earlier.
Prior to her performance, she said on the red carpet: “It’s actually 30 years since my mum performed at the Brits and it’s just so amazing and such a lovely, sort of full-circle moment.
“Mainly I just feel so honoured to be here tonight, it’s been such a journey”.
It is the 12th time best female has been won by a non-white artist.
Other winners included Billie Eilish, who won best international female solo artist, and Tyler, The Creator, who scooped the equivalent male award.
Eilish, who performed her new James Bond soundtrack during the ceremony, said that London feels “like a second home” to her and that seeing the crowds made her emotional.
She said: “I have felt very hated recently.
“When I was on stage and I saw you guys all smiling at me it genuinely made me want to cry and I want to cry now.”
After picking up his award Tyler, The Creator made fun of former prime minister Theresa May, who he said had previously stopped him entering the country.
He said: “Thank you Theresa May.
“I know she’s at home p***** off.”
The ceremony, which was celebrating its 40th anniversary and hosted by Jack
Whitehall, opened with a tribute to the late former Love Island host Caroline Flack, who was found dead on Saturday having taken her own life.
Whitehall said that she was “a member of the Brits family” during his opening monologue, adding that she was “a kind and vibrant person with an infectious sense of fun”.
“She will be sorely missed.
“I’m sure I speak for everyone here when I say our thoughts are with her friends and family.”
