Jaime Winstone appeared to make a rather sly dig at Dua Lipa after she failed to make it to the BRIT Awards to accept her gong on Tuesday evening.
Presenting the Best Pop/R&B Act award, Jaime Winstone read out the winner, which happened to be Dua Lipa.
Currently in Miami, Dua wasn’t available to collect the accolade in person – something that left Jaime slightly put out, or so it seemed.
In a strange tone, she said: “So sadly she cannot be here tonight… oooh… she’s busy.”
Dua then appeared via video link and explained that she is currently touring and is in America right now.
Jaime’s comment about Dua didn’t go unnoticed and some viewers took to Twitter to detail the awkward moment.
One said: “Not Jaime Winstone throwing shade at Dua Lipa for being busy.”
Another then penned: “I think Jamie Winston got dressed up hoping to meet Dua Lipa but got a little upset when mentioning she could not be there, why else the sarcasm right!!”

Elsewhere at the Brit Awards, hitmaker Anne-Marie took a tumble on stage during her live performance.
The 30-year-old singer was belting out one of her hits when she made her way down some steps and stumbled.
Ever the professional, she picked herself back up quickly and carried on like a trooper.
The 2002 hit-maker donned a daring red leather dress as she belted out her incredible vocals.
But things took a turn for the worst when the tumble took place.
Following Anne-Marie’s shock fall, ITV viewers flocked to Twitter to share their sympathy with the stunning star.

“Poor Anne-Marie! She looks shaken after that,” one tweeted.
“Oh nooooo! Anne-Marie! She picked herself back up though for an incredible performance,” another echoed.
Afterwards the singer took to Twitter to address the tumble, writing: “Didn’t need my left ankle anyway.”
