The horse that hospitalised Dappy by kicking him in the face has been given odds of 250/1 to win a Brit Award for 'Outstanding Contribution to Music.'

Betting wesbite Paddy Power offered the odds following an online petition to recognise the horse's contribution to music at next year's Brit Awards.

A spokeman for Paddy Power says of the horse's odds: "There’s no doubting this horse’s taste in music and at 50/1 it probably has a better chance of winning a music award in 2014 than Dappy does."

The petition, which currently has over 7,000 signatures, insists that the horse has performed a public service which "should be recognised."

"The horse showed class, discernment and good aim", said one petition supporter. "Very few individuals have done the public such a cultural service" explained another.

The singer, who is currently facing bankruptcy following an unpaid tax bill, received a hoof to the face after being thrown off his horse on the grounds of his country home.

Thankfully, he has since recovered enough to pose for a photo with "the biaaaatch that bust me open" on his twitter account.

Below: Dappy's most unpleasant, offensive moments

  • Dappy was today (17 January 2013) found guilty of assault and affray. The rapper was charged with assaulting David Jenkins by beating - which involved spitting at him - and one charge of affray. Several of Jenkins' teeth were broken in the fight.

  • Dappy's entire music video for his song 'Tarzan 2' was a shambles. The video originally had a dedication to 'Free Leo Chindamo', who was jailed for 14 years for the murder of headmaster Philip Lawrence. The song also included the lyrics "I heard Simon Cowell thinks I'm a little w**ker/ And I'm getting on his t*ts like cancer," and "Alexandra pull your socks up/ Where your hits at, you ain't no winner/ I feel bad because your voice is amazing/ But your career's getting raped by a mason." Classy.

  • In 2011, Dappy was accused of child abuse after he said, "If my son is rude or says a swear word, then I put black pepper in his mouth - on the tip of his tongue - and slap his wrist."

  • Also in 2011, Dappy was arrested on suspicion of assaulting Kaye Vassell, the mother of his two children. He was later released without charge.

  • In April 2010, Dappy was caught on CCTV taking Mephedrone, known as "meow meow", after which he said "I'll never do such things again." A day later, he was kicked out of Alton Towers theme park hotel after allegedly smoking cannabis in his hotel room.

  • N-Dubz were involved in an anti-bullying campaign when they went on Radio 1, and a woman texted in complaining that Dappy was "vile" and "a little boy with a silly hat." Dappy stole her number and proceeded to send her a barrage of abusive texts insisting that she apologise - including one saying, "your gonna die," and "u dum f****** ***head." N-Dubz were dropped from the anti-bullying campaign and Dappy never apologised to her.

  • Dappy and bandmate Fazer had to be escorted from a plane after it touched down, as they were acting 'disorderly'. A source said: "They were swearing at kids on the plane, being foul and threatening passengers. Cabin crew called ahead to the police, who were waiting when the plane landed. They were taken away by armed officers." The band later apologised for their 'high spirits'.

  • In 2009, Dappy was accused of making death threats with a gun and was arrested and bailed. He denied the allegations, but police still raided his home in Camden.

  • On a TV documentary, he admitted that he rarely pays for trains and tube service, and gives a fake name and address to the police. During Being N-Dubz, he said, "For the first time we're actually gonna pay and do this properly. The amount of times I used to be on these trains, these stops, dry mouth, no money in my pockets, one penny sweet left. Now look, I got an Oyster. I'm legit."

  • Finally, in December 2008, Dappy apparently spit in a girl's face on a night out - and pleaded guilty to two charges of assault at Chelmsford Magistrates Court, Essex. For each count he received four weeks' imprisonment, suspended for 12 months, to run concurrently and 100 hours community service. He was also ordered to pay £50 compensation to the girl and her friend and £300 costs.
