Jeremy Corbyn presented the prize to the "Gang Signs & Prayer" rapper, who took his acceptance speech as an opportunity to "big up Jeremy Corbyn" and slam Theresa May, labelling her a "paigon".

Scottish broadcaster, XFM DJ and former journalist Gordon Smart then greeted him off-stage with a one-off blend of Copper Dog whisky distilled in 1993.

He praised grime artist Stormzy as an "inspiring young man" who had used his fame to speak out about racism, the Grenfell Tower scandal and mental health issues.

Standing side-by-side with Corbyn, Stormzy, (birth name Michael Ebenazer Kwadjo Omari Owuo, Jr.) said: "It's so incredible to be here with everyone".

Stormzy is a fan of Corbyn, saying a year ago: "My man, Jeremy".

"I do want to use this to say that Theresa May is a paigon and you know what we're doing right now. yeah trust me".

"Yeah, trust me. Yeah, it's awkward when I say that isn't it, yeah?" Alastair Campbell thought he'd heard Stormzy call May a "pig" while Westminster blog Guido Fawkes thought he had meant "pagan".

As well as having a go at the British Prime Minister, Stormzy also said that he was "blessed to be in a room of so many legends". "This past year, we've seen dramatic political events all across the world", Corbyn introduced him with.

"He's remained absolutely true to his rootds and committed to his roots throughout", the Labour leader said.

"I can't even believe it. Thank you so much, man. Love", he added.
