You’ll see me collecting the award just before Prince comes on screen (at 56 secs in).

As a side note my five words got the biggest cheer of the night, especially good as everyone’s told not to cheer each individual award!

Excalibur is just one of the Hallows of this Isle (according to legend) and as such is of equal import as the … OMI god no not the  … you can’t do thi.. as|~@p,,,,,,,,//  … ERic no ….”
