As he accepted the award for Best British Solo Artist, Carner paid tribute to people living with dyslexia and ADHD, after he previously documented his own experiences with the conditions.

Hailing it as a superpower, Carner said: ” What the fuck! I didn’t see coming it all. This is for my mum and brother and my missus”.

“If you’ve got ADHD and Dyslexia, keep answering back and keep answering questions. ADHD is a superpower.”
