Attraction have won 'Britain's Got Talent' 2013 after beating off stiff competition from runner-up Jack Carroll

Attraction have won 'Britain's Got Talent' 2013.

The nine shadow dancers from Hungary, who reduced the judges to tears with their performance in the semi-final, were crowned the winners of the reality TV series in the grand final on Saturday night (08.06.13).

The group beat off stiff from comedian Jack Carroll, who was the runner-up, and singers Richard and Adam, who came in third place, to win the show's £250,000 prize and a performance on this year's Royal Variety Performance.

On hearing the news they'd won the competition a stunned member of the group said: "It's amazing, yes, thank you very much."

Comedian Jack Carroll, who has cerebral palsy, graciously accepted defeat, saying: "Runner-up? A little bit insensitive is it not? I had a great time and I came second. Cheers everyone. I've tried my best... Cheers to everyone who voted."

Speaking about this year's series, Simon Cowell, who was targeted by a former contestant during the live final and had eggs thrown over him, said: "This has been a brilliant series. It has had the eggs factor."

The dance act also competed against Jordan O'Keefe, Arisxandra, Luminites, Pre-Skool, Gabz, Francine Lewis, Asanda Jezile and wildcard Steve Hewlett in the final, during which Ed Sheeran and Taylor Swift performed.
