The 'Every Kingdom' star takes home his second award of the night at London's O2 Arena.

Ben Howard has been named the winner of British Male Solo Artist at the BRIT Awards 2013.

The 'Old Pine' singer picked up the prize ahead of the likes of Olly Murs, Richard Hawley and Calvin Harris at London's O2 Arena tonight.

"I didn't really expect to win, I was just stoked to come to the awards so to win two is incredible," he said when accepting the gong.

"I'm really bad at speeches," he joked as he continued his speech.

The singer will also be taking to the stage for a special performance later tonight.

Robbie Williams, Justin Timberlake and Muse have already performed on the night with One Direction, Emeli Sande and Taylor Swift also on the line-up.

Ed Sheeran – who won the prize last year – took to the stage to present the prize sporting a shiny suit.

The award was the fourth to be handed out on the night following Mumford & Sons picking up British Group, Ben Howard scooping British breakthrough and Emeli Sande taking home Female Solo Artist.
