According to the BBC, the Scottish hitmaker said: ‘Listen… The Beatles, Drake, Metallica, The Eagles, Michael Jackson, don’t worry guys, no hard feelings, I just had to take this one. Take a step back and let Daddy steer the ship now, OK?’

On beating the Suffolk-native, he added: ‘Ed’s a man who is like a brother to me, he’s been a mentor, he’s put his arm round me and said, “Don’t worry everything’s going to be ok.”

‘He’s been nothing but kind and gracious and beautiful, a good friend in an ever-changing industry. So to Ed I say… nice guys finish last. You snooze you lose, kiddo. Keep up!’

Taking to Instagram on Monday, Lewis posed with his award while wearing an inflatable crown.

Lewis recently looked smitten as he made his way to a London hotel with model and actress Ellie MacDowell following a romantic dinner on Thursday at 4:30am.

The star kept things casual in a white T-shirt which he teamed up with a black jacket and coordinating trousers as the cosy pair departed Chiltern Firehouse.

Meanwhile, Ellie wrapped up in a brown coat, which she combined with matching trousers and boots, with the pair soon arriving at the hotel reception.

An onlooker told The Sun: ‘They were both smiling and laughing, they seemed to be very much enjoying each other’s company.

‘They walked to the hotel together, arm-in-arm, and spent a few moments in the reception before heading to the lift.’

Actress Ellie is thought to be playing Cary Grant’s daughter Jennifer in Archie, an upcoming ITV biopic.

It comes after Lewis revealed that his anti-anxiety medication has the adverse effect of decreasing his libido and makes it hard for him to orgasm.

He candidly opened up on the negative side-effects of the antidepressants and how they have caused him trouble in the bedroom.

The chart-topper uses Sertraline to treat his anxiety, a medication that treats a range of conditions including anxiety, depression, OCD and post-traumatic stress disorder.

Speaking on the Zach Sang Show, Lewis said: ‘[Sertraline] made me feel better for a bit but also, how do I say this? 

‘It makes it hard to climax. It’s like I’m on a roller coaster that’s going up and up and it never comes down.

‘It just keeps going up and up. So, that was an issue, it also decreased libido in general.’

He went on to joke: ‘Obviously, a sex machine like myself that’s just not going to fly. There’s too many young ladies out there that would be hard done by if I was to take away my libido. 

‘I still take that because you’ve got to keep it in check somehow. I am like, “Woah, now boy”!’
