Photos Backstage At 2008 GQ Men Of The Year Awards Plus All The Winners and Details Of Lily Allen and Elton John's Fight

Stars Celebrate And Spar At The GQ Awards

After the glamorous arrivals it was time to get down to the nitty gritty of the GQ Men Of The Year Awards and give out the gongs. There were some fab photo opportunities as the stars collided – Dave Grohl and Bobby Gillespie looked like twins with their long hair, Josh Brolin got a kiss on the cheek from Thandie Newton, and a bewildered-looking Boris Johnson received his award from Trinny and Susannah. My favourite, James Corden, received his breakthrough award from Gavin and Stacey co-writer Ruth Jones, and Alfie Allen and Jaime Winstone had their engagement revealed by Alfie's sister Lily who introduced Jamie as "my future sister-in-law". Mysteriously Alfie just said "Well, now you know" in response.


Speaking of Lily, she and Elton John had a bit of a spar at the ceremony, as Lily introduced "the most important part of the night", Elton apparently interjected "What? Are you going to have another drink?" Lily then responded "F*** off Elton, I'm 40 years younger than you and have my whole life ahead of me!" He retorted, "I could still snort you under the table", and Lily replied "F*** off. I don't know what you're talking about." Wow.
