Thousands have signed a petition to give the horse that kicked N-Dubz star Dappy in the face a Brit award.

A petition is calling for the creature to be given the 'Outstanding Contribution to Music' gong at next year's Brit Awards.

The online petition at Change.org states that the horse "has performed a public service and should be recognised."

The campaign has received more than 7,000 signatures so far, but needs over 990,000 to gain approval.

Last week it was reported that Dappy was in hospital after the incident.

The 26-year-old was said to have been riding around the grounds of his home on Wednesday when he fell off the horse and was subsequently kicked in the face after the animal got spooked.
