"I think I'm a very unlikely popstar. This is an album I wrote because I didn't have the confidence to say these things myself as a person," Sande said while collecting her 'British Album' award.

Mumford & Sons beat One Direction to the 'British Group' prize, while Ben Howard walked away with the 'British Breakthrough' award, which was voted for by BBC Radio 1 listeners.



Howard also triumphed in 'British Male', saying: "I was quite stoked to come to the awards to be honest, so to come away with two of these things is quite amazing."

Adele's James Bond theme 'Skyfall' was named 'British Single' and the star appeared in a pre-filmed clip to thank fans and mock her speech being cut off at last year's ceremony.
