Fellow X-Factor contestants Olly Murs was named Best Solo Artist and boyband Union J got the Breakthrough Award while Doctor Who won Best TV Show and Andy Murray was named Best Sports Star.

Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams was named Best Actor and Zoella won the Best Vlogger award for her fashion and beauty website.

The winners, voted for by radio listeners, were announced at the event hosted by Nick Grimshaw and Rita Ora.

Awards were also handed out to three Teen Heroes, nominated by Radio 1 and Radio 2 listeners, and chosen by celebrities including Professor Green.

Among the winners was 14-year-old Jeremiah Emmanuel who serves as Deputy Youth Mayor in Lambeth, South London, and has campaigned against youth violence.
