The Scottish singer-songwriter secured the latter for his song Someone You Loved, which spent seven consecutive weeks at number one.

Pritchard’s brother AJ also attended with his Strictly Come Dancing celebrity partner Saffron Barker, hours before it was announced the pair had been eliminated from the show.

The event honours the UK’s unsung teenage heroes as well as music, sport and entertainment stars, and three of the station’s teen heroes of 2019 also collected awards – Rachel, 17, Scarlett, 14 and Hazel, 12.

Caroline Dubois, 18, was also crowned BBC young sports personality of the year.
