Arctic Monkeys were the big winners at tonight's Brit Awards, taking two accolades for British Group and British Album of the Year.

Despite making their disdain for the awards overtly clear in the past, the Sheffield band opened the event at London's O2 Arena.

James Corden, presenting the live ITV show for the final time, was encouraged to go “off the leash” and whip up some spontaneous fun, which apparently involved kissing Radio 1 DJ Nick Grimshaw and calling people with double-barrelled surnames "horse-faced inbreds".

The combined US star wattage of Beyoncé, Katy Perry, Pharrell Williams and Bruno Mars was imported from the Grammys to add lustre to the live performances.

Most notably, David Bowie's win for British Male Solo Artist cemented his musical comeback.
