After one of the biggest nights in One Direction’s short careers, Simon Cowell took to twitter to show his opinion of the award, saying: “Fantastic news. Congrats @onedirection I am very proud of you”
1D beat much-fancied competition including The Wanted, Adele, JLS, Example, Ed Sheeran amongst others to pick up their first Brit Award, and the boys gave thanks to all their fans for voting for them.
Backstage afterwards, they joked that they were going to struggle with just one trophy between them, and Niall Horan said: “We have to break the award into five. Or we need to photocopy it.”
Harry then gave us a hint as to a future collaboration : “We would love to work with Adele.” – Wouldn’t that be great!
Later during the ceremony James Corden greeted the boys at their table, admiring their stack of beer bottles and champagne, and making a quip about Harry’s taste for a cougar, saying: “Can you confirm or deny the rumours that you’ll be stepping out with Denise Welsh?
After a long pause, Harry replied: “It’s true”, before Corden came back with: “He loves a loose woman”.
