The Canadian singer also won the best song and the biggest fans awards at the event held at Wembley Arena.

Flying the flag for Britain were Ed Sheeran who won best live act and Stormzy who won the best act for the UK and Ireland.

Taylor Swift had been nominated for six awards but left empty-handed after failing to win any.

Other winners on the night were Dua Lipa who won best new act, Camila Cabello who scooped best pop and Eminem who won best hip hop.

The awards were hosted by Rita Ora who turned up wearing a dressing gown – complete with a towel on her head.

She was given the first ever MTV EMAs power of music award to honour the charity efforts of musicians who performed on the Grenfell fire charity single.
