The last ever South Bank Awards took place last night (well, one can only assume they're the last awards given ITV are canning the show after this series), and many a culturadle sort - and Rachel Stevens, Miquita 'water me, please' Oliver, Peaches Geldof, Rick Edwards and Will Young's pants - turned up to see the eclectic list of nominees collect their gongs.
