BGT: The Champions fans hail Twist and Pulse as series “winners” after Alesha Dixon golden buzzer

Dance duo were runners-up on Britain's Got Talent runners-up

Viewers hailed Twist and Pulse as the rightful “winners” of BGT: The Champions after the comedy dance duo received Alesha Dixon’s golden buzzer on Saturday night.

The pair, Ashley Glazebrook and Glen Murphy, were runners-up on Britain’s Got Talent way back on series four, missing out to acrobatic gymnasts Spelbound.

Now they get the chance to go one better in next weekend’s series finale after being put straight through by Alesha.

Fellow judge David Walliams told the duo they were one of his favourite ever acts and that he wished he had been on the panel when they made their first appearance.

He said: “To combine this incredible skill for dancing with this amazing comic timing is something we’ve never seen before. You two are adorable.”

Amanda Holden said: “I love you. I’ve always loved you. You brought so much humour and such a unique act to this show.

“Honestly it’s so brilliant to see. You’re still very funny, still really cheeky, still got the moves.”

Simon Cowell said: “I don’t think you’ve been given enough credit over the years in terms of what you brought to us.

“The people who didn’t want to compete again, you know why?

“It’s because they didn’t think they could win. You’ve come back because you believe you can win and that’s why you have my total respect.”

Fans overwhelmingly agreed with Alesha’s decision.
