David Bowie Wins Best British Male Trophy!

David Bowie has won only two Brits previously, including an honorary award in 1996

Rock legend David Bowie has been named best British male at the Brit Awards in London, although he was not there in person to collect his award.

Bowie’s prize came at the expense of four much younger hopefuls Jake Bugg, Tom Odell, John Newman and Mercury Prize winner James Blake.

At 67, he is the oldest recipient of a Brit Award in the ceremony’s history and the award comes 18 years since his last Brits success.
