'Britain's Got Talent' winner Ashleigh Butler has only spent £313 of the money she has won from the show
'Britain's Got Talent' winner Ashleigh Butler has only spent £313 of her £500,000 winnings.
The 17-year-old star - who beat opera singers Jonathan and Charlotte in the final of the show - admits she has not yet had time to go on a spending spree, but plans to split the money with her canine pal Pudsey.
She said: "I never thought in a million years that we'd win, so I never thought about what I'd do with the money if we did.
"I've told Pudsey I'm splitting the money with him, but we'll put it all into one bank account. I think Pudsey trusts me! So far all I've spent is £313 on clothes. Normally I go straight to the sale rail but this time I n New Look I picked everything up full price"
Ashleigh's next big task is performing for Queen Elizabeth at the Royal Variety Performance, but she admits she has not yet thought about what she will say when she meets her.
She added to Look magazine: "It's amazing that I'm going to meet the queen! I've not started planning what to say to her but I think I'll have to put my posh voice on."
