Double act Chris and Wes won Sky1's 'Got To Dance' last night, scooping a £250,000 prize.

Street dance duo Chris Donnelly and Wes Clack - branded the "Ant and Dec of dance" by host Davina McCall - triumphed over seven other acts in the live final, after stunning the crowd with two unique, hip-hop inspired routines, including a mash-up of Michael Jackson's 'Billie Jean' and 'Like I Love You' by Justin Timberlake.

The pair - who are both professional dance teachers from Hayes, West London - said they now plan to spend their winnings on buying their own dance studio.

Chris added: "Words cannot describe how amazing this feels; we never thought this would happen to us."

Meanwhile, the judging panel - Ashley Banjo, Adam Garcia and former Pussycat Dolls singer Kimberley Wyatt - unanimously agreed the duo deserved to win.

Ashley said: "I am always going to be a massive fan you are the most unique act we have ever seen on 'Got To Dance'."

Chris and Wes have had a string of stars - including Manchester United player Rio Ferdinand and 'Britain's Got Talent' winner George Sampson - backing them throughout the series, with TV presenter Vernon Kay already having offered the pair his congratulations.

Writing on his twitter page, Vernon said: "@ChrisAndWes WellDone chaps! I feel a "mash" coming on!!!(sic)."
