It finally happened – tonight The Voice UK has crowned its 2017 champion, and the lucky winner is Mo Adeniran.

Battling it out on the night alongside Mo was Jamie Miller and Into The Ark, but it was ultimately Mo's spectacular performance of 'Iron Sky' by Paolo Nutini that got the viewers voting, and the performance of his winner's song just sealed the deal.

Jamie Miller opened the final tonight with a reprise performance of Ed Sheeran's 'Shape of You', then Into the Ark took to the stage with Drake's 'Hold On, We're Going Home' and Mo rounding it out with 'Iron Sky'.

After all three acts performed, it was Jamie who got the least amount of votes and finished in third place while Mo and Into the Ark went on to perform what would be their winner's single if they won the vote tonight.

Into the Ark hit the stage for the second time with their winner's single – 'Not a One' by The Young Wild – and then Mo followed with his, 'Unsteady' by X Ambassadors, before ultimately being announced as the viewer's favourite.

Mo seemed shocked to be crowned the winner and had to be coaxed from the middle of a giant hug from the rest of the finalists under a shower of confetti.

"I want to say thank you to everyone at home and here that supported me," he said. "I want to say an amazing thank you to the most phenomenal person I've ever met in my life.

"Thank you, Jennifer and thanks to all the judges."

Mo's winner's single will be available to stream and download from midnight tonight on all good platforms, including iTunes and Apple Music.

He'll then be hitting the studio straight away with a top production team to record a whole EP rather than just the one single as usual, which will debut at the same time as a one-off ITV special, The Winner's Story.

The Voice UK airs on ITV.
