Harry Styles was left cringing after his producer pal made a joke about Maya Jama and ex-beau Stormzy’s sex life to millions of viewers.
Pop star of the moment Harry bagged himself four gongs at the Brit Awards on Saturday (February 11), including Album Of The Year.
Stanley Tucci presented Harry with the prestigious award, who was joined on stage by songwriter and producer Kid Harpoon.

However, the producer, whose real name is Thomas Hull, left viewers and 29-year-old Harry himself cringing during the acceptance speech.
Speaking on-stage, Kid Harpoon went on to make inappropriate comments made about rapper Stormzy and Love Island presenter Maya.
The former-couple, who were both in attendance at the Brit Awards, dated for four years before splitting in August 2019.
Grasping the gong and mic, Kid Harpoon took the chance to honour his music pals and his wife in his speech.
He said: "Thanks so much for honouring us tonight. Tyler [Johnson], Harry, thank you so much I love you like brothers. Couldn't ask for anyone better to do this with, we got this forever.”
But then, seemingly out of nowhere, the producer went on to admit he and his wife were planning to role-play later as rapper Stormzy and Love Island host Maya.
"Also, my wife Jenny, has promised me we are going to pretend to be Maya and Stormzy back in the day tonight. Turn off the lights," before the sound suddenly cut.
Following his comments, As It Was hitmaker Harry was seen playfully pretending to hit his pal over the head with their award.
The show then cut to Mo Gilligan who congratulated Harry, as he and Kid Harpoon walked off the stage together.
Maya and Stormzy were in a relationship between 2015 and 2019 and Stormzy described their break-up as his "biggest mistake" during a recent interview with Louis Theroux.
However, the pair were recently caught up in reconciliation rumours – but the Bristol babe has since shit down the rumours.
Viewers soon took to Twitter to share their thoughts on the “awkward’ and “unnecessary” comment.
“The way they tried to bleep out that Maya and Stormzy joke wtf was he thinking,” raged one person.
Another added: “A rather awkward Stormzy and Maya Jama mention."
“The Maya and Stormzy comment with them both in the building.. I can’t the second hand awkwardness,” proclaimed a third Twitter user.
A fourth agreed: “That Maya and Stormzy comment was so unnecessary…”
