Accepting the award, Ns Ferguson said: "It was a huge privilege to make 'Nothing Compares' and to do so with Sinead’s blessing. As I’m sure you’re all very aware, we lost her this summer, which was devastating.

"Ironically, it seems she had to pass for the full impact of her bravery, her extraordinary talent, and her importance as a truth-teller to be fully realised and appreciated."
