Laura Whitmore and Anne-Marie treated fans to a behind-the-scenes look at the 40th annual BRIT Awards, which took place at London‘s O2 Arena on Tuesday evening.

Taking to social media, the Love Island host, 34, opted for a relatively early night as she headed to bed in a dressing gown, while the singer, 28, went wild with a bottle of her favourite alcoholic beverage, Malibu.

The media personalities were joined by the likes of presenter Maya Jama, the event’s MC Jack Whitehall, and giddy New Artist and Song of the Year winner Lewis Capaldi, who cheekily shared a kiss with former One Direction star Niall Horan.

The Irish TV star – who put on a brave face by attending the event following the death of her close pal Caroline Flack – appeared in great spirits as she watched the festivities unfold with Maya Jama, Keith Lemon, his wife Jill Carter, before enjoying a boogie with Emily Atack.

Laura continued to let her hair down at the Warner Music & CIROC BRITs afterparty at The Chiltern Firehouse, before switching out of her newspaper-print dress and into a comfy white robe.

Posing for a cosy snap with her talent manager pal Jakki Jones, she captioned her image: ‘Thank you @warnermusic @jakkidoodles @chilternfirehouse’. 

Meanwhile, Birthday hitmaker Anne-Marie shared her delight as she took an photo with former One Direction member Harry Styles, after toasting the starry soiree with Caribbean rum.

Look pretty in pink like Anne-Marie wearing Florence Grellier

If you’re going to the BRIT Awards, you might as well wear custom which is exactly what Anne-Marie did.

Hitting the red carpet in a custom made Florence Grellier dress, the singer made sure all eyes were on her… ours definitely were!

We’re loving this silk satin pink number which is designed with a bardot bodice, fitted mini silhouette and dramatic train. Stylist Phoebe Lettice Thompson has worked her magic once again!

Sadly, we mere mortals can’t snap up this made-to-measure dress by the Central Saint Martins graduate, but if you want to recreate Anne-Marie’s look peruse the carousel.

For as little as £19 you can get a red carpet ready dress you only need to team with heels to make a statement.

BBC star Maya, 25, pouted up a storm as she posed with comedian Jack, 31, following his impressive hosting stint, while former couple Harry and Kendall Jenner enjoyed a sweet reunion at The Box in Soho.

Despite not being nominated for an award this year, Ellie Goulding still managed to celebrate her career with an Espresso martini. 

Ditching the glitzy afterparties, Rod Stewart, 75, and his wife Penny Lancaster, 48, enjoyed an intimate dinner with Ronnie Wood, 72, and his wife Sally, 42, after their Faces reunion performance. 

Supermodel Irina Shayk was in her element as she struck a smouldering pose in her blue shirt dress, before letting loose with her date for the night, Burberry’s chief creative officer Riccardo Tisci. 

Like mother like daughter, music icon Neneh Cherry was every inch the proud parent as her daughter Mabel claimed the Female Solo Artist prize, while Love Island’s Amber Davies reunited with her 9 to 5 co-star Louise Redknapp. 

At the event, Lewis, Stormzy and Billie Eilish led the winners in a largely male dominated shortlist. Musician Lewis, 23, claimed two awards from four nominations, triumphing in the categories for New Artist and Song of the Year.

The latter nomination was awarded for hit single Someone You Loved, a track Capaldi insisted was written for his late grandmother – not former girlfriend and current Love Island star Paige Turley.

Meanwhile Stormzy, 26, picked up the award for Best Male Solo Artist in front of a star-studded audience that included ex-girlfriend Maya Jama. 

Accepting his award, the grime star was quick to reference the gender disparity at this year’s ceremony by thanking the team of ‘brilliant women’ who form his management team.      

Rising superstar Billie Eilish, 18, received a nod in the International Female Solo Artist category alongside the likes of Lizzo and Ariana Grande

And after performing new James Bond soundtrack No Time To Die live for the first time, she claimed her first BRIT Award from former Spice Girl Mel C.

Despite Billie’s success, only four nominations out of a possible 25 in the categories which are not gender-specific featured women. 

There were no female performers included in the shortlists for best group or album awards, although English singer Mabel, 23, was nominated for three awards and ultimately claimed one of the biggest of the night – Best British Female Artist. 

Elsewhere Dave’s excellent Psychodrama beat stiff competition to win Best Album ahead of Stormzy’s new release Heavy Is The Head, Michael Kiwanuka’s self-titled LP Harry Styles’ Fine Line and Lewis Capaldi’s Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent. 

Oxford based band Foals won Best Group after a return to the spotlight with their conceptual, two-part Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost. The group beat Bastille, Bring Me The Horizon, Coldplay and D-Block Europe to the honour on Tuesday night.

Taking it global, innovative rapper Tyler, The Creator beat Bruce Springsteen, Burna Boy, Dermot Kennedy and Post Malone in the category for International Male Solo Artist.   

The lack of nominations in for female artists comes despite a major overhaul of the Brits’ voting academy in 2017 to make it more gender balanced and diverse, with hundreds of new members invited to join the pool. 

The awards are voted for by around 1,500 people from across the UK music industry including journalists, record label employees and musicians.

The rising star winner was announced as Celeste late last year, while the producer of the year will be announced at a later date. The international group and video categories were axed by organisers this year.
