The Canadian singer also won the best song and the biggest fans awards at the event held at Wembley Arena.

Flying the flag for Britain were Ed Sheeran who won best live act and Stormzy who won the best act for the UK and Ireland.

The awards returned to London last night for the first time in 21 years.
