Spelbound have won 'Britain's Got Talent'.
The team of acrobats were named the winners of this year's series of the reality show tonight (05.06.10), after beating thousands of hopefuls to perform at the coveted Royal Variety Performance and scooping the £100,000 prize money.
The judging panel - consisting of Amanda Holden, Piers Morgan and Simon Cowell - have been huge fans of the act since they wowed them in their first audition by launching group members into the air and catching them in dramatic fashion.
On hearing the result, music mogul Simon said: "The show is called 'Britain's Got Talent' - absolutely the right girls and guys won on the night. I am very proud of you. Well done."
Their incredible routine saw one young performer thrown over the heads of the panel as they entered the stage.
Comedy dance act Twist and Pulse came second in the public vote, after being praised by the judges for their amusing dance routine and teenage drummer Kieran Gaffney was placed third.
After hosts Ant and Dec told him of his position, Kieran shook hands with the fellow contestants and thanked everyone at home for voting for him.
Spelbound became an instant internet sensation after their first performance a few weeks ago, with even magazines in America discussing their moves - as well as their "pasty" skin.
The group have apparently taken on all criticism, as they looked tanned and groomed on stage tonight.
It is not known what order the remaining seven hopefuls - consisting of singer Liam McNally, dog dance act Tina and Chandi, impersonator Paul Burling, singing pensioner Janey Cutler, performer Christopher Stone, boy band Connected and body popper Tobias Mead - came.
