He said: “Thank you so much for this lovely award - two of them, double awards. Most Played Song, I really appreciate it.

“It means a lot that you guys have played this to the point that the British public absolutely despise me,” before laughing it off.

He continued: “Genuinely, all jokes aside, it means the world. I don’t take it lightly and if I was there I’d give you all a big lovely kiss on the mouth.

“It would be a slobbery kiss - but I’m not [there] so I won’t. I’ll see you very soon and please for my next album, let’s give it a go again because I do not want to be a failure. Thank you so much, I love you all.”

The ‘Bruises’ singer is making a habit out of scooping double awards as he also recently took home two winning titles at the 2020 BRITs.

He won British Single with ‘Someone You Loved’ and British Album with ‘Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent’.

The star’s ex and Love Island winner, Paige Turley was in attendance of The Global Awards 2020 and even spoke about a potential collab between the two.

Whilst speaking to Capital’s Will Manning on the blue carpet, she was asked: “When are you going to fulfil this fan request of you and Lewis doing a duet?”

Former Britain’s Got Talent contestant responded: "Maybe, I’ll see if Finn gets in there first and then we’ll see. You never know.”

The 22-year-old stunned viewers with her amazing voice in the talent contest of the ITV2 show and have been hoping for a duet ever since!
