Selfies, champers and lots of laughs - here's what really went down at the BRIT Awards!


The BRITs is always a star-studded night and the 2016 ceremony attracted an array of celebrities from the worlds of music, fashion and more.

It’s always fun to watch the glitzy event on TV but what REALLY goes on behind the scenes? Thankfully the stars have given us a glimpse of the backstage action in their social media pictures and it sure looks like this year’s event at London’s O2 Arena on 24 February was on to remember!


BRITs 2016: All the looks from the red carpet

Check out our gallery of some of our favourite star snaps from the night, ranging from unexpected selfies to pre-performance poses and much more.

Hosts Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly were leading the way by taking a photo with the crowd as they toasted the evening’s festivites with a glass of champagne – save us some, eh boys?

They definitely deserved to celebrate as they did a brilliant job of hosting yet again.

Other celebs gave us a sneaky peek at their pre-BRITs preparations. Perrie Edwards messed about with a dancer as Little Mix got ready to grace the stage whilst Kylie Minogue kept the focus on her gorgeous green shoes – we want!

There were certainly a lot of selfies being taken throughout the night, from reunion ones – former Spice Girls Geri Halliwell and Emma Bunton, old pals Fearne Cotton and Reggie Yates – to simply stunning ones – yes, we’re looking at you Cheryl!

Some featured slightly unexpected combinations. Who knew Caroline Flack would be hanging out with US model Lucky Blue Smith, eh?

One thing’s for sure, these stars were definitely having a great time at the event.

Nick Grimshaw kept his followers entertained when he and Cheryl decided to re-enact Rihanna’s steamy performance with Drake in a hilarious video clip.

‘Me and chezza pretending to be BadGal & Drizzy,’ the Radio 1 DJ wrote. Mega LOLs!
