    Stormzy's Gang Signs & Prayer won the award for British Album of the Year, and Stormzy was also named best British Male Solo Artist. The award for best British Female Solo Artist went to Dua Lipa, and Gorillaz was named the best British Group.

    Dua Lipa was named British Breakthrough, and the Critics' Choice Award went to Jorja Smith.
