Piers beat off competition from Donald Trump and Kim Jong-Un to the accolade, also was not there in person to collect it, currently filming a new series of his ITV documentary series in the US.  

However, the night was not all about Piers, with the best of alternative British music celebrated at the ceremony. 

Loyle Carner won the Best British Solo Artist prize, which came fresh off the back of his two Brit Awards nominations for Best Solo Male and Best British Breakthrough.
