Brit Awards 2017

This year's Brit Awards ceremony graced our television screens last night, with the biggest names in the UK pop industry all gathered for an evening of winners and woes. The coveted statuettes took on a different shape this year, thanks to a quirky design by  Zaha Hadid – although they look like they'd been left out in the sun and melted to us! The late, undeniably great David Bowie took home two of the main prizes, which serves as a fitting tribute to a man who had such a tremendous effect on British pop music throughout his outstanding career. The show was as glitzy and glamorous as ever. But if you were hoping for some of the traditional mishaps that have made headlines in past events , then you won't have been disappointed.

The puns were out in full force, particularly on Twitter. They varied from sigh-inducingly cheesy to painfully clever. Some fell flat (you could say they were punsuccessful), whereas others were pundamentally brilliant. But all – or at least most – drew a smile.  Here's a selection of our favourites from #UKPunDay: A gang were caught
