Fans of Britain’s Got Talent: The Champions have been left divided as the winners of the show were crowned.
At the end of the pre-recorded final, hosts Ant and Dec announced the top three acts as voted for by the audience of BGT ‘superfans’.
Ukranian sand artist Kseniya Simonova, and dance acts Twist and Pulse and Stavros Flatley were called up to stand next to Ant and Dec and await the reveal of the winner.
Kseniya Simonova was called out in third place, and then Twist and Pulse were revealed as the winners.
The boys were overwhelmed as they accepted their trophy.
Glen said: “I am absolutely speechless. I can’t thank you guys enough. I’m holding back everything right now.”
Whilst Ashley added: “I literally feel amazing. Things like this don’t happen to me and my best friend Glen. Thank you so much, this means the world to us.”
Some viewers at home were thrilled, saying the lads had worked hard and really deserved it.

Others were fuming and thought German act Alexa and her dogs should have taken home the prize.
They called out the voting system and one even suggested it was ‘fixed’ for Twist and Pulse to win.

The winners were not the best . The dog act or the sand woman should have won #BGTChampions

#BGTChampions What a joke, who are these stupid Superfans. Voting crazy throughout and how the dog act didn’t win tonight is ridiculous.

Earlier, fans had expressed their fury that the final isn’t live and they didn’t get to vote for their winner.
And the winner may have been very different if the public had their say given two acts brought viewers at home to tears.
