Stormzy and Dua Lipa are big winners at BRIT Awards 2018

Stormzy and Dua Lipa were the big winners at last night's BRIT Awards. 

The rapper picked up two awards at the ceremony at London's O2 Arena, winning the night's big prize with Best British Album for Gang Signs & Prayer and Best British Male. 

Dua Lipa also did well, winning both Best British Breakthrough Act and Best British Female. 

Other winners on the night included Gorillaz, who picked up Best British Group, Foo Fighters, who won Best International Group and rapper Kendrick Lamar who won Best International Male. 

Lorde upset the odds as she beat Taylor Swift to win Best International Female, while Rag 'n' Bone Man and Harry Styles were both victorious, winning for Best British Single and Best British Video respectively. 

Ed Sheeran, who was nominated for three awards, had to make do with the Global Success award, as he lost out to Stormzy and Rag 'n' Bone Man in his categories.
