Richard Hawley says he's got more chance of 'seeing the Queen's tits' than winning a BRIT
Singer won't be attending the awards on Wednesday as he has a gig in Bristol
The singer, who has been nominated for the gong along with Ben Howard, Calvin Harris, Plan B and Olly Murs told The Sun: "The nomination is a nod to the fact I'm still around and I’m very grateful for that. But I won’t win…They’re not going to give it to some 46-year-old bloke, are they? I reckon I’ve got as much chance of winning as I have of seeing the Queen’s tits."
Hawley won't be attending the BRIT Awards show on Wednesday (February 20) because he already has a show scheduled in Bristol and won't postpone it. "They’ve asked me to go but I will not move a show if I don’t absolutely have to," he said. "It’s a thing I’ve always been strict on. When I broke my leg last year I was on stage the same night, in a wheelchair…So I won’t be moving a gig to go to the Brits."
Meanwhile, Richard Hawley is set to headline this years' Camp Bestival along with The Levellers and Labrinth. Bestival's annual, family-friendly sister event takes place from August 1-4 at Lulworth castle in Dorset. Also on the bill are Billy Bragg, The Polyphonic Spree, Tom Odell, John Cooper Clarke and others.
