Accepting it from Lulu and Matt Goss, he said he has messaged the singer to say: "You know I've always loved you and I always will."

Father-of-two Robbie congratulated Adele on a "beautiful album" and added that she is also an "incredible mum".

Hosted by Fearne Cotton, Claudia Winkleman and DJ Gemma Cairney, the evening recognised achievements in the British music industry throughout the year.
