'Heart Skips A Beat' singer Olly Murs took home the trophy for Best Male at the awards, and appeared extremely pleased to win.

He told the crowd: "I've never really won anything, so do get this is really incredible, thank you."

Other winners included Bruno Mars, who took home Best International Artist and Adele, who was named Best Independent Artist.

Kaiser Chiefs also took home a trophy for artist promotion for their fourth album, 'The Future is Medieval', which was originally released over the internet with fans able to chose which tracks from 20 they wanted to include on the album.

Ahead of receiving the award, singer Ricky Wilson told BANG Showbiz: "I think that at the end of the day, even though we're very proud of the idea and all that, we've most proud of this body of work than anything we've ever been proud of before.

"[Keyboard player] Peanut always says he's not proud of anything, but I don't believe him."
