BRITs 2023: Ellie Goulding and Leigh-Anne among bleary-eyed celebs leaving wild afterparties

After a wild night of partying following a chaotic BRITs ceremony, exhausted celebrities made their way home in the early hours of the morning.

It was an evening of awkward moments (that eye-wincing Tom Grennan comment being one of them), technical glitches, sweary moments and very unusual outfits.

But the time came in the early hours of this morning for stars to make the long trek back home in the taxi - with some unable to keep their eyes open for a moment longer.

One such person was TV presenter Alex Scott, who had a trusty bottle of Evian water in a cup holder as she sat in the back of a car.

Wearing a plunging rose print jumpsuit, Alex looked as glam as ever as she jumped into a taxi, covering herself in her cape.

The Football Focus host, 38, couldn't resist shutting her eyes as she relaxed in the cab.

Similarly, despite a late night at the BRITs, Leigh-Anne appeared as flawless as usual as she made her way to an afterparty in her fiery orange dress.

Earlier on at the glitzy bash, host Mo Gilligan was criticised by viewers over the way he questioned her parenting.

Leigh-Anne and her footballer fiancé Andre Gray, 31, are proud parents to twins who were born in August 2021 - but the star was attending the event clearly without the babies.

Mo asked the singer: "Who is babysitting tonight, because tomorrow's Sunday? Are you going out? Having it large?"

However, his comment sparked accusations of misogyny and sexism - with many viewers taking to social media to blast the comedian and defend the Little Mix star.

One unimpressed viewer tweeted: “mo asking leigh anne who's looking after the children is literally so annoying when women are constantly reduced to being questioned about motherhood their whole lives. it's not like she was a part of the biggest girlband in the world or anything? #Brits2023.”

Sam Smith was also pictured making their way home, having swapped their wild outfit earlier for a simple hoodie.

The hitmaker had been nominated for two awards this year for Best Pop/R&B Act and a second for Song Of The Year for their hit Unholy featuring Kim Petras, but missed out to Harry Styles.

Ellie Goulding was spotted making her way home in her unusual metal-breasted outfit, which singer Tom Grennan had awkwardly commented about on stage.

He asked if they were her real breasts, prompting her to joke that she wished they were and hers are much further apart.

Viewers blasted Tom over the comment, with one person saying on Twitter : "Tom grennan comment was so out of line to ellie goulding..."

Another said: "The scripts, the Tom Grennan asking Ellie Goulding about her boobs…in 2023?!"

Kate Garraway also seemed to have a great time at the ceremony, waving goodbye to photographers as she made her way back in a taxi.

Joel Dommett and his wife appeared to be in equally high spirits, with Hannah blowing a kiss from inside the taxi.

The Masked Singer presenter appeared tired as he buckled himself in for the long ride home.

Ashley Roberts appeared to have enjoyed her night after dancing the night away at Universal's afterparty.

Wearing a risque see-through dress, the Pussycat Doll star made her way to a taxi with pals.

Charli XCX also seemed to be ready to head to bed as she left the Warner Records BRIT afterparty, wearing black sunglasses and a white t-shirt with 'real winner' emblazoned on the front.

She ignored paps as she made her way to a taxi draped in a yellow and brown fluffy coat.

Meanwhile, Lewis Capaldi was having the time of his life (as ever) as he rolled around on the carpet of an afterparty...
