Jules O'Dwyer and her dog Matisse are the ninth winners of Britain's Got Talent.

They beat 12 other finalists to take home £250,000 and earn a spot at this year's Royal Variety Performance.

Owner O'Dwyer thanked everyone who had voted, and joked about the Royal Variety Performance saying: "I'm going to have to buy a corgi."

The other two top acts were choir Cor Glanaethwy and magician Jamie Raven.

Raven landed in second place after wowing the judges by making a bank note signed by judge Alesha Dixon appear in the middle of a lemon.

On coming second, Raven said: "To be honest, I think, technically I was the most talented human being. I just want to say thank you to everyone who voted."

Out of the final 12, two were announced on the evening as wildcard choices, with the public wildcard vote going to nine-year-old Jesse-Jane McParland and the judges' wildcard choice was dance group, Boyband.

TV hosts Ant and Dec said the show had received a total of four and a half million votes.

The top nine spots went to, in order from last to fourth: Boyband ,Entity Allstars, U D I, The Neales, Jesse-Jane McParland, Danny Posthill, Calum Scott, Isaac Waddington and in fourth place, Old Men Grooving.
