‘What she said about them was SO bad’: BRIT Awards viewers are stunned after ITV fails to censor Daisy May Cooper’s bizarre joke about the Sugababes ‘NOT doing coke’
The Sugababes were at the centre of a bizarre cocaine joke at this year’s BRIT Awards.
Actress and comedian Daisy May Cooper, 36, made the gag while presenting the Best Alternative Rock award to The 1975 at the 2023 ceremony in London’s O2 Arena on Saturday night.
Despite the Sugababes not being nominated in any category, Daisy, who was wearing a tiny black leather mini dress, said: ‘God, we went into the toilets earlier and we saw the Sugababes.
‘And they weren’t doing coke – they were lovely.’
Daisy’s microphone crackled just as she said the words, but the joke was not cut from the BRITs coverage.

The Sugababes earlier walked the red carpet with other famous faces, with Mutya Buena, 37, in a strappy black dress that showed off her leg tattoos.
Her bandmate Keisha Buchanan, 38, went braless in an oversized grey and white striped suit, while Siobhán Donaghy, also 38, was in a purple suit.
Daisy presented the award alongside actress Selin Hizli, 34, with whom she starred in her sitcom ‘Am I Being Unreasonable’ about friendship and stalking.
Viewers appeared to find the moment hilarious and shared their thoughts on Twitter. One wrote: ‘Daisy May Cooper saying she met the Sugababes in the toilets and they WEREN’T doing coke is quality TV’
Another said: ‘Thoughts and prayers to the audio muted team failing to mute Daisy talking about the Sugababes in the toilets’
But a third disagreed: ‘Daisy lol I love her usually… think she’s so funny but what she said about the Sugababes was so bad’
Meanwhile, BRITs host Mo Gilligan apologised for calling Lewis Capaldi by the wrong name before the singer performed his ballad ‘Forget Me’.

The Scottish singer, 26, was preparing to perform at the awards when host Mo Gilligan introduced him as Sam Capaldi.
However he was quick to apologise afterwards, joking it was proof how strong the drinks at the BRITs are.
Mo said: ‘It just goes to show how strong the drinks are at the Brits. They’re not playing around.’
Lewis wasted no time when coming up with a funny response and shared it to Twitter.
