I love Pulp so much. I love Jarvis Cocker. He’s so cool. I love his creepy teacher thing.

Whitehall also said he was a huge admirer of The Vaccines and that they had recorded an appearance on his new Channel 4 TV show.

Asked who his favourite winner on the night was, he replied: “Vaccines. I love The Vaccines. I thought their performance was great. They did my show, which is coming out on Channel 4 soon, and they were so nice. They’re great.”

Whitehall was himself a winner on the night, taking home the award for Best TV Show as part of the cast of Fresh Meat. Speaking about the award he said he was glad to win, but added: “I feel like This Is England 88 deserved some kind of award.”
