Actor Gary Oldman accepted the award on Bowie's behalf.

Remembering his friend, he said: "I can assure you that David faced his illness with enormous courage, with dignity and grace and customary humour.

"Even in dire circumstances, when he wrote to tell me the bad news that he had cancer, he added "the good news is, I've got my cheek bones back."

"David, you were mortal, but your potential was superhuman and your remarkable music is living on. We love you and we thank you."
