Mirror mirror on the wall, who is the most tipped of them all? Why, it is Snow White. Oh no, sorry, it’s Jack Garratt. Always get those two mixed up. Jack Garratt has won this year’s BRITs Critic’s Choice award.

Handed the first of those Pam Hogg trophies, Garratt said: “I am so humbled to have received this year’s BRITs Critics’ Choice Award. To have been nominated alongside Frances and Izzy Bizu was already a huge honour and a testament to the calibre of new UK music. To have been given this award is truly mind-blowing, considering I am one name in a hugely exciting time for music in this country. Thank you to everyone who voted, it means so much to me”.

Once he’d said all that and had a photo taken with his prize, it was wrestled back off him, so it can be handed to him all over again during the BRIT Awards nominations show on ITV on 14 Jan. So that’s something for all of us to look forward to.
