Lewis Capaldi's BRIT Awards Acceptance Speech Bleeped Out Of TV Broadcast
| Last updated
When Lewis Capaldi collected his BRIT award this evening, he opted for an acceptance speech that merited slightly more than a PG certificate - and his words were understandably bleeped from the ITV broadcast of the ceremony.
Naturally, audiences at home were left wondering what he said - well, we can help.
The 23-year-old got up on stage to collect his Best New Artist accolade and he simply said: "Thank you very f**king much, see you in a bit. Good night." Short, simple and sweet - we like it.
Pretty much his entire speech was bleeped out because, well, it's only 8.30pm. But arguably the best thing was that the Scotsman took to the stage with a bottle of Red Stripe in his hand.
Taking home his award, Capaldi beat fellow nominees that included Dave, Aitch, Mabel and Sam Fender.
People responded to BRITs tweet demanding to know why his speech was bleeped: "Any reason the audio was muted? Wanna know what he said," one said.
Another added: "What's with the mute?" A third commented: "Desperate to know what he said".
