DANIEL STURRIDGE took centre stage, literally, at tonight’s Brit Awards.

The Liverpool striker was an unused substitute for his team in their 0-0 home draw against Bayern Munich on Tuesday.

But tonight at London’s O2 Arena, Sturridge handed out the Best Male prize to singer George Ezra.

He was joined on the stage by musician Paloma Faith, and looked somewhat awkward as he announced who had won the gong.

In the audience for the event was his Liverpool team-mate Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, with girlfriend Perrie Edwards of Little Mix fame.

Watford striker Andre Gray was also there with his partner and Perrie’s bandmate Leigh-Anne Pinnock.

But it was Sturridge’s big moment on stage that has got the nation talking.

The host for the night and Arsenal fan Jack Whitehall cheekily introduced Sturridge as the “future Premier League runner-up”.

Many wrote on Twitter how the 29-year-old looked “so confused” to be on the stage.

Others simply could not understand why or how Sturridge had been asked to present an award.

Michael Barnes was wondering if he was “the best footballer they could get”, while his appearance was a “headscratcher” for another.

And Whitehall wasn’t finished with his own jokes at Sturridge’s expense.

After the 26-cap England striker had done his bit, Whitehall added: “I don’t want to make any Liverpool fans worried, but he’s just picked up a knock shaking his hand there”.
