Britain’s Got Talent has unveiled the voting figures from this year’s final, revealing that new champion Jon Courtenay won by quite the landslide.

Of the 10 acts in the final – five picked by the judges during the semi-finals and five selected by the public – Jon received a total of 35.7% of the total vote, following the performance of his original song in the final.

Things were a little bit closer between second, third and fourth place, with runners up Sign Along With Us landing 15.3% of the votes.

Just behind them were comedians Steve Royle and Nabil Abdulrashid, on 14.1% and 13.9%, respectively.

For safety reasons, the performances in this year’s BGT final were pre-recorded ahead of time, although the results of the public vote were announced live.

Comedy singer Jon’s win was a notable one, as it marked the first time a Golden Buzzer act – picked by one of the judges to automatically win a spot in the semi-finals after their audition – has gone on to win the competition.

This year saw Simon Cowell sitting out the second half of the competition due to an injury, with former BGT winner Ashley Banjo sitting in for him this year.
