Johnny Vegas - reprising last year's role of Empire's surrogate actress...
"Second year running. Next year if there's not an award for best expectant speech on behalf of a female winner who couldn't be arsed to be here, it would have to go to me. In terms of Kirsten, congratulations, love but once again you've opened up the floor to a drunk. And me and Kirsten work in so many different ways. She toils away at her craft and the prizes come second. I take whatever fucking job comes along just on the off chance I can come to award do's and drink for free."
