Adele flipped the ‘birdy’ to BRIT Award bosses after being cut off during her acceptance speech tonight.

The London singer was collecting her Album of The Year award for ‘21’ at the BRITS when host James Coden ran onstage and interrupted her speech due to time constraints.

Speaking during the press conference after, she said: ''I was cut off during my speech but I wanted to thank the British public for all their support. I was held up with my voice and troubles but the album kept walking without me.

I flipped the bird for the suits at the BRITS who cut me off. Sorry if I offended anyone but it was for them, not for the fans.’

The singer's second album '21' beat off competition from the likes of PJ Harvey, Ed Sheeran, Florence And The Machine and Coldplay.

Ed Sheeran won British Male Solo Artist and Best British Breakthrough, while Adele also won the award for Best Female Solo Artist.

Coldplay continued their Brit Awards run as they were named British Group, with frontman Chris Martin thanking fans for their continued love and support.

In the international categories, Foo Fighters won International Group and after little under six months Lana Del Rey held back tears as she collected the International Breakthrough Award.

Rihanna was named International Female Solo Artist for the second year and Bruno Mars took home the honour for International Male Solo Artist.
