In a recorded message, the band said: “We are so honoured to win the group of 2018.

“We just finished touring America and can’t wait to come back and see you guys.”

At the end of the video, they added, “Big love”. BTS, formed in 2013, are one of the world’s biggest musical acts.

Last month they were named best international group and social media stars at the BBC Radio 1 Teen Awards.

In August, they became the first K-pop group to enter the top 40 of the UK singles chart after their song Idol landed at number 21.
