And other showbiz

Stormzy and Dua Lipa both bagged two awards at last night's Brits.

The grime artist got best album for his debut Gang Signs and Prayer and was named best British male.

Meanwhile, the New Rules singer was given breakthrough act and best British female.

Accepting that prize she thanked every woman who'd been on the stage before her.

Ed Sheeran didn’t win any of the 4 awards he was up for but he did win the Brits Global Success Award, based on sales.

Cheryl and Liam posed for photos on the red carpet amid rumours that a split is imminent. Maybe she’s got to fight fight fight fight fight for this love.
