PRIME Minister David Cameron has admitted he let out a “cry of joy” when David Bowie called for Scots to stay part of the UK.

The singer delivered his unexpected message, in which he urged “Scotland, stay with us”, in a note read out by model Kate Moss at the Brit Awards.

Mr Cameron said: “I was watching the Brit Awards and when I saw Kate Moss leap to the stage and utter those words I have to say I did let out a cry of joy because I’m sure that maybe someone like David Bowie might be able to reach parts of Scotland that perhaps I can’t.”

The Prime Minister, who has just one Conservative MP in Scotland, revealed his reaction to the surprise intervention during a visit to Aberdeen.

He took his Cabinet to the city at the same time as Scottish Ministers gathered in the area.
