Ed Sheeran was "really worried" about his latest album, despite picking up the BRIT Award for MasterCard British Album of the Year for 'X'.
The 'Thinking Out Loud' hitmaker was honoured with the prestigious gong at tonight's (25.02.15) BRITs ceremony and admitted it had been a "very very good year" for British music.
In his acceptance speech, he said: "Thank you so much for this. I was really worried about this album, making it - it took a long time to make - and to be happy with it. I didn't expect this.
"What I will say though is it's been a very very good year for British music and it's a time to celebrate the whole thing. I don't think a statue gives justification to people's success.
"I think the sales and the accreditation, tickets, everything gives people success. The statue is wonderful; thank you so much for it. Just keeping making music! Sick, nice one!"
After he left the stage, the 24-year-old chatted to the show's hosts Ant & Dec and joked that he wanted to "flog" his award.
He said: "I know you have to engrave it but it's a Tracey Emin so I could probably flog it so can I keep it?
"They usually take it off you and send you it."
Ant then told Ed: "You have it and leg it out of here!"
Ed also picked up a gong for British Male Solo Artist.
