The studio wizard, who co-wrote Oscar-nominated James Bond theme Skyfall with the singer, was honoured at the annual Music Producers Guild (MPG) Awards, which rewards recording professionals.

Epworth landed the MPG's producer of the year prize, which also earns the winner the Brit prize, for his work on the Florence + The Machine album Ceremonials.

Ceremonials was named album of the year at a ceremony in London's Cafe De Paris last night.

Florence Welch said of Epworth: "His innovation and passion are constantly inspiring, and I am grateful to have worked with him on an album that I am so proud of."

The event also saw an honorary award going to Beatles producer Sir George Martin for his outstanding contribution to UK music.

And Glyn Johns, whose career has included work on The Clash's Combat Rock, Who's Next by The Who and Eric Clapton's Slowhand, took the inspiration award.
