Spelbound crowned Britain's Got Talent winners

Britain's Got Talent winners Spelbound

Gymnastics group Spelbound have been voted winners of this year's Britain's Got Talent.

The 13-member troupe win the chance to perform for the Queen at the Royal Variety Performance. They also get a cash prize of £100,000.

Teenage dance duo Twist & Pulse were runners-up and 13-year-old drummer Kieran Gaffney finished third.

Judge Simon Cowell seemed pleased with the result. He said: "The right boys and girls won on the night."

After hearing they'd won, the group said: "This is unbelievable, we just want to say thank you to everyone out there. It just shows that all our hard work has paid off."

Spelbound are aged between 12 and 24. Most of them have been training since the age of four.

The troupe were the last of 10 acts to go on stage in Saturday's final. They opened their performance with one member flying over Amanda Holden's head!

But the judge didn't appear to mind too much. She said: "We are hosting the 2012 Olympics and I think, 'What a brilliant opening act'."

Spelbound told presenters Ant and Dec that they'd now be focusing on the world acrobatic championships.
