Adele has won Best British Single for her Bond theme Skyfall at the Brits.

She wasn't there to receive her award, but in a video she made a joke at the expense of last year's awards when her Best Album acceptance speech was cut short.

"I won't keep you too long because I don't want to interrupt the Best Album speech at the end of the night....but, I love you all", the singer said.
