Mumford & Sons: Brits are fun but 'unimportant'

Hot on the heels of their Album of the Year win at this year's Grammys, Mumford & Sons are also up for three Brit Awards and will be performing at the ceremony.

Speaking to ITV News' Nina Nannar on the red carpet, Marcus Mumford said: "It's fun to celebrate British music but none of its important".

"Not to be disrespectful.... none of it really matters. We like playing gigs and writing songs, recording them, then going out and playing more gigs", he said.

Ted Dwane added: "I made a foolish suggestion earlier there should be nominations, no awards, but we decided no one would watch that!".

The Brit Awards will be broadcast live on ITV at 8pm.
