On Liam Payne, who was presenting an award: “Naomi Campbell’s current squeeze. His surname is Payne, which is what he’ll be in a world of if he crosses her.”

After Ed Sheeran accepted the Global Success Award via a video message: “Give that man a knighthood. Preferably Sir Philip Green’s.”

On Pink closing the show: “Only the biggest stars in music go by one name … Madonna, Cher, Olly … Murs.”

On Piers Morgan criticising Little Mix for their nude shot: “Which is weird … voluptuous breasts and four chins – it must have been like looking in the mirror for him.”

Introducing Best British Group: “This year was all about reunions. First the Spice Girls, then Bros, and finally Westlife announced that they were back in the studio. Suddenly a hard border with Ireland doesn’t sound quite as bad.”

On Ed Sheeran’s Game Of Thrones cameo: “To present it, we’ve got stars from Line Of Duty and Game Of Thrones … a show full of incest, murder and castration, yet still the most disturbing scene was one that featured Ed Sheeran.”

Before Little Mix’s performance: “Girl bands tend to crash and burn quicker than Prince Philip on a country drive but our next performers have bucked the trend.”
