It is easily one of the most raucous nights in the UK showbiz calendar.
And the BRIT Awards did not disappoint on Tuesday evening, as the stars put on a wild display while departing the various after-parties – including the big record label bashes – Warner, Sony and Universal, held at The Chiltern Firehouse, The Standard Hotel and The Box respectively, as well as a party at the O2 Intercontinental Hotel.
Leading the way was Abbey Clancy, who has become well-known for her raucous BRITs behaviour, as she larked around in her cab home, while she was joined by a very animated Michelle Keegan, followed on by a host of stars of the evening including Harry Styles, Lizzo, Irina Shayk and Jack Whitehall.

Abbey looked sensational in a strapless gown as she left the bash, yet seemed to have overindulged as she was bleary-eyed and struggling to keep her hair in place.
Looking every inch the silver sensation, Michelle staggered to her cab while beaming and flashing peace signs at cameras in an animated and super-playful display.
Clearly revelling in his successful evening, Lewis Capaldi took his celebrations from the stage – where he was swigging Buckfast Tonic Wine, a caffeinated fortified wine originally made by monks – to the parties, during which he put on a particularly bleary-eyed display.
Injecting some model glamour into the night was Irina Shayk, Bella Hadid and Kendall Jenner, with the latter cosying up to her pal Riccardo Tisci while leaving the party.

It was a case of exes for Kendall Jenner, Harry Styles, Stormzy and Maya Jama.
Stormzy, 26, who had picked up the award for Best Male Solo Artist in front of the star-studded audience earlier in the night, attended The Chiltern Firehouse with a legion of stars – including his ex-girlfriend Maya.
Harry and Kendall meanwhile, were spotted inside The Box having a chat before making brightly coloured departures.

Ellie Goulding risked a wardrobe malfunction in her perilously placed gown, made up of patchwork appliques, under which she only wore lingerie and went braless, in an eye-popping display.
Lewis, Stormzy and Billie Eilish led the winners in a largely male dominated BRIT Awards shortlist. Lewis, 23, claimed two awards from four nominations, triumphing in the categories for New Artist and Song of the Year.
The latter nomination was awarded for hit single Someone You Loved, a track Capaldi insisted was written for his late grandmother – not former girlfriend and current Love Island star Paige Turley.

Accepting his award, the grime star was quick to reference the gender disparity at this year’s ceremony by thanking the team of ‘brilliant women’ who form his management team.
Rising superstar Billie Eilish, 18, received a nod in the International Female Solo Artist category alongside the likes of Lizzo and Ariana Grande. And after performing new James Bond soundtrack No Time To Die live for the first time, she claimed her first BRIT Award from former Spice Girl Mel C.
Despite Billie’s success, only four nominations out of a possible 25 in the categories which are not gender-specific featured women.

There were no female performers included in the shortlists for best group or album awards, although English singer Mabel, 23, was nominated for three awards and ultimately claimed one of the biggest of the night – Best British Female Artist.
Elsewhere Dave’s excellent Psychodrama beat stiff competition to win Best Album ahead of Stormzy’s new release Heavy Is The Head, Michael Kiwanuka’s self-titled LP Harry Styles’ Fine Line and Lewis Capaldi’s Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent.
Oxford based band Foals won Best Group after a return to the spotlight with their conceptual, two-part Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost. The group beat Bastille, Bring Me The Horizon, Coldplay and D-Block Europe to the honour on Tuesday night.

Taking it global, innovative rapper Tyler, The Creator beat Bruce Springsteen, Burna Boy, Dermot Kennedy and Post Malone in the category for International Male Solo Artist.
The lack of nominations in for female artists comes despite a major overhaul of the Brits’ voting academy in 2017 to make it more gender balanced and diverse, with hundreds of new members invited to join the pool.
The awards are voted for by around 1,500 people from across the UK music industry including journalists, record label employees and musicians.
The rising star winner was announced as Celeste late last year, while the producer of the year will be announced at a later date. The international group and video categories were axed by organisers this year.
