Kelly Jones and co closed the ceremony with a selection of their greatest hits, including C'est La Vie, Maybe Tomorrow, Bust This Town and Dakota.

The veteran rockers were asked by Radio X's Rich Wolfenden if they had any advice for anyone out there wanting to stat a band and their answer was pretty simple.

“I think with a lot of the new artists out there now, it’s become very apparent that it’s all about the song, you know," said frontman Kelly.

“It’s always been about the songwriting for us, and these days with streaming and that sort of stuff it’s much more apparent that you have to have really good songs. "

"So I would stick to the songs. It’s not about any bandwagon or fashion or anything like that.

“I think if you have the good tunes and you’re just honest about what you’re doing, that’s the best advice I could give.”

The winners of The Global Awards 2020 with were crowned at a star-studded ceremony tonight (Thursday 5 March) at London’s Eventim Apollo Hammersmith, hosted by Capital Breakfast’s Roman Kemp, Smooth Radio’s Kate Garraway and Classic FM and Smooth presenter Myleene Klass.
