Singer Becky Hill and rapper Aitch were both winners at tonight's Brit Awards, and they didn't hold back in their speeches as both of them swore as they accepted their gongs.
Becky won the Brit Award for Best Dance Act, whilst Aitch accepted the gong for Best Hip Hop/Grime/Rap Act.
Both of them said "s**t" during their speeches – which came before ITV's watershed time of 9pm, and some viewers of the show were left fuming.
One person tweeted: " @ITV absolutely discustard that there’s SWEARING ON ITV before 9PM!!!! #itv #BRITs #britawards @Ofcom SHOKIN."
Another wrote: "Someone is getting sacked for not catching Aitch swearing #brits," as someone else tweeted: "#britawards2023 swearing before 9pm? Wow. Plus is this music?. I feel like my parents when i was young.. #BRITs."
A third wrote: "The man pressing the swearing beeper at the brits is non-existent this year," and a fourth added: "How much swearing?! #BRITs.
Yet another tweeted: "Swearing from Becky. #BRITs," and a sixth saw the funny side as they quipped: "Swearing before the watershed? tonight is looking interesting loool #Brits."
Meanwhile, viewers of the show were left wondering if they had heard right, as show host Mo Gilligan, 34, accidentally introduced Lewis Capaldi as 'Sam Capaldi' before the Scottish star gave his performance.
Mo, who hosted the awards for a second year in a row, announced: "Lets have another performance, it's a singer-songwriter who is the spirit of the Brit Awards in human form. Here with his amazing number one single, Forget Me.
"It's the brilliant – go crazy! It's Sam Capaldi."
Following Lewis' incredible performance, Mo addressed his earlier name mistake, and jokingly told the crowd: "I have to apologise, I did call him Sam – it just goes to show how strong the drinks are at the Brits. They’re not playing around!"
Viewers found the gaffe hilarious as they took to Twitter to comment, as one person wrote sarcastically: "I'm such a huge fan of Sam Capaldi," as a second added: "Who is Sam Capaldi may I ask?"
A third wrote: "I love Sam Capaldi," and another BRITS fan said: "Excuse me did Mo just call Lewis Sam Capaldi," with a confused emoji.
Lewis himself is known to enjoy a joke or two, and he took to Twitter to reshare a fan tweet in which someone had superimposed a picture of Lewis' face on top of singer Sam Smith's body, with the Scottish star then resharing it to Twitter and writing: "Sam capaldi x"
His tweet quickly racked up over 30,000 likes and thousands of retweets and replies. Ex-footballer Peter Crouch wrote: "This man is a hero," with a laughing emoji, while another Twitter user said: "Oh my God this wins the Internet! Hands down!"
