Jake Bugg has hit out at the Brit Awards claiming they invented the Global Success Award just so One Direction could win it and would attend the ceremony.

The 20-year-old Lightning Bolt singer lost out on the Best Male Solo Artist award at this year's Brits to David Bowie and told BBC Newsbeat, "I don't mind losing out to David Bowie but how can you have a category with him in it, and four people that have made one or two albums?"

About the Global Success award, which was won by One Direction, he added, "To make up an award just so One Direction win it and turn up is a bit wrong but that's it, it's show business."
