Click above to watch the video interview in which Cocker, who hosted the ceremony last year, hails the ex-burger van-owning presenter for his fashion sense.
In the interview Cocker wouldn’t be drawn in too deeply on the topic of his plans for Pulp‘s live shows this summer, but did say he was looking forward to gearing up his musical career once more.
“It’s good to have a little break sometimes,” he said, “then you realise you miss it and come back.”
Cocker presented the John Peel Award For Innovation to Crystal Castles at last night’s bash.
