David Cameron 'let out a little cry of joy' at David Bowie's Brit Awards speech

David Cameron has commented on David Bowie's Brit Awards speech – which was read by Kate Moss – in which he called for Scottish voters to reject independence.

As reported, Bowie was not at the venue to pick up his award for British Male, and instead sent Moss to pick up the prize on his behalf and read out his acceptance speech.

Moss, who was presented with the award by Noel Gallagher, told the crowd: "David has asked me to say this: 'In Japanese myth, the rabbits on my old costume that Kate's wearing live on the moon. Kate comes from Venus, and I from Mars. I'm completely delighted to have a Brit for being the Best Male. I think it's a great way to end the day. Thank you very much – and Scotland, stay with us."

Speaking to the Daily Telegraph , Cameron revealed that he let out a "little cry of joy" when Moss delivered the politically charged speech. Speaking during a visit to Aberdeen, Cameron said: "I was watching the Brit Awards and when I saw Kate Moss leap to the stage and utter those words I have to say I did let out a little cry of joy. I'm sure that maybe someone like David Bowie might be able to reach parts of Scotland that perhaps I can't."
