Inside The Brits after parties: from 4am McDonalds to cosy bathroom selfies

The 2023 Brit Awards looked like a fun evening for those lucky enough to secure an invite.

But when the ceremony drew to a close the fun certainly didn't end there, with famous faces descending on to multiple after parties taking place in locations scattered across London.

Maya Jama, who won't have long to recover from the night out as she is soon flying to South Africa for more Love Island hosting duties, got changed into a silver sparkly dress and jumped on board a boat party that she hosted with Coca Cola to help celebrate the night of British music and their new limited-edition drink, Movement.

The 28 year old had fun twerking and dancing with her friends, which included Jesse Lingard and AJ Odudu, as it travelled across the River Thames.

And of course all good nights out finish with a trip to fast food joint McDonald's and Maya knows this well, and so she secured the takeaway at 4am whilst back on dry land.

Maya wasn't the only one who hit the dance floor. Over at the Universal party, that took place at the exclusive 108 The Strand, Ashley Roberts, Leigh Francis aka Keith Lemon, Tom Daley and Dustin Lance Black all took turns showing off their moves.

They were able to shake their stuff to Sophie Ellis-Bexter who performed at the event, and treated the audience to a rendition of her popular hit 'Murder on the dancefloor' while dressed in an emerald green dress.

When Olympic diver Tom wasn't dancing he was posing for photos with Jess Wright.

The former TOWIE star quickly bonded with him, writing: "Met this beautiful soul Tom Daley tonight and shared our fun journey to the after party."

Jess, who also used the bathroom mirror to snap a photo of her outfit, spoke honestly about suffering from "mum guilt" while attending the BRITs. She asked her 1.5 million followers: "Does that mum guilt ever go?"

They weren't the only celebrities to enjoy getting some quality time after hours.

Emily Atack enjoyed bumping into comedy legend Daisy May Cooper. The pair did some hair shaking, before bursting into laughter together.

Daisy May, 36, made a joke earlier in the evening that baffled some fans, who thought it should have beeped out. While presenting an award she said that she'd bumped into the Sugababes in the bathroom before adding: "And they weren’t doing coke – they were lovely."

It wasn't just their unique choreography on the dance floor that allowed celebrities to bring out their creativity, they were also inventive in front of the cameras.

Lewis Capaldi, who didn't win at the awards but said he felt like he won after kissing Harry Styles, found himself laying on the carpet to please awaiting photographers.

Earlier in the night, the 26 year old singer was incorrectly introduced by host Mo Gilligan.

He announced: "Let's have another performance, it's a singer-songwriter who is the spirit of the Brit Awards in human form. Here with his amazing number one single, Forget Me.

"It's the brilliant – go crazy – it's Sam Capaldi."

Lewis was able to see the funny side, though, later posting a photo of his head superimposed on Sam Smith's body.

Ten minutes across town from Universal's 180 The Strand party, was Sony's shindig at Nobu. Attending celebrities included Ellie Goulding, Louise Redknapp and Vick Hope were able to graze on a decadent sushi buffet.

Ellie, 36, may have wanted to let her hair down after being at the centre of another awkward exchange while presenting an award with Tom Grennan.

Singer-songwriter Tom ask Ellie: “I love what you’re doing. These are your real boobs?”

Ellie, who wore a stunning all-black ensemble to the annual awards bash, responded: "No these are not. Mine are a lot further apart sadly. I wish,” with Tom awkwardly replying: “Sorry.”

Rather than heading Sony or Universal, Laura Whitmore chose the equally lively Warner party at NoMad Hotel to continue celebrations.

Attendees were treated to a DJ set by the Sugababes, with Laura, 37, telling her 1.5 Instagram followers that the trio had "nailed it".

The party also had a special backdrop for guests to get beautiful snaps of their afterparty attire which Laura made good use of.

Plus, each guest that RSVPed yes received a pretty epic goody bag which included Ray-Ban smart sunglasses, which have cameras in the frames and MAHSA’s TRIO LED Light Activated Teeth Whitening Kit.

Earlier in the night, Laura was put on the same table as Maya during the awards ceremony, but they reportedly didn't speak.

An insider at the awards show said to OK!: "They didn’t talk to each other once throughout the whole show, despite being on the same table."
