IF YOU DON'T WANT TO KNOW THE RESULTS, PLEASE, LOOK AWAY NOW: - although we suspect you might have to spend the next 24 hours re-creating the Whatever Happened To The Likely Lads episode with the football match if you don't want to know who wins what in the Brits 2005 before it's on ITV tomorrow.

So, England F then:
Best Internatioal Breakthrough: Scissor Sisters
Best Song of the Last 25 Years: Angels - Robbie Williams. Palpable rubbish, of course, because if that was the best song these islands had produced in the last quarter-century, we'd have all boiled our skin off in misery long before the middle of the 1980s.
Best Rock Act: Franz Ferdinand
Lifetime Achievement: Bob Geldof - this was announced before, of course
Best British Breakthrough: Keane

... more results as they come in.

UPDATE: Here's some more, then:
Best British Single: Will Young - Your Game (eh? Surely someone is just leaking out ridiculous results to throw everyone off the scent?)
Best International Female: Gwen Stefani
Best Pop Act: McFly

UPDATE: Best British Female: Joss Stone
Best urban act: Joss Stone. (No, really. So we won't get to see Jamelia's ass, then...)
Best British Group: Franz Ferdinand
Best International Male: Eminem
Best British Male: The Streets

Amy Winehouse - nominated for some sort of award - gets some last minute adjustments to her outfit

The Official Brits site hasn't been able to cope tonight - we've not managed to log onto it at all, which is quite poor. of course, if the thing had been shown live on TV, they might not have had that trouble.

Best International Album: Scissor Sisters - Scissor Sisters

And the final award... Best British Album goes to Keane. We bet they couldn't quite believe that, either - and while we have a soft spot for Keane, this seems like the wrongest of the results of the evening. Most of the shit decisions can be put down to having a general public vote - but this? This is going to seem so like a miscarriage when viewed from 2013...
