Chatting to the press together after the awards the 76-year-old joked with reporters, praising Catherine's performance: "What a dancer, I taught her everything she knows!"

When asked about her own performance, Shirley Bassey spoke of the thrill of singing on such a stage: "Oh my God, the greatest. After 40-odd years of singing that song, to sing it to actors and actresses was tremendous, a dream."
