One Direction were big winners at last night's MTV European Music Awards, taking home three prizes.

The boyband won Best Pop, Best Live and Biggest Fans at the event held in Glasgow, Scotland, but weren't on-hand to pick up the trophies, and so recorded video messages to accept the awards, with Zayn Malik missing from the screen.

Harry said: "We're so sorry we can't be with you tonight. Thank you so much for this, the award for Biggest Fans.

"Because of that we obviously, obviously want to thank our incredible fans - thank you so, so much for all your support. We can never thank you all enough."

Katy Perry, 5 Seconds of Summer and Ariana Grande all picked up two awards each, with Nicki Minaj and Beyoncé among the other winners.
