A breakdown of the public votes from last night’s Britain’s Got Talent final shows a close contest between champions Jules O’Dwyer and her dancing dog Matisse and runner up Jamie Raven.

Scooping 22.6% of the 4.5 million votes, the canine and his trainer saw off stiff competition from the helicopter conjurer who bagged 20.4% of the votes.

Their haul was far beyond that of their closest competitors as Welsh choir Côr Glanaethwy took third place with 10.7% of the votes. Dancing dads Old Men Grooving weren’t too far behind with 10.2% of the votes, while fifth place was claimed by 15-year-old crooner Isaac Waddington who took 9.7%.

At the lower end of the scale, twelfth place went to Ant and Dec’s Golden Buzzer Boyband, who scored just 1.5%. And while she was far and away the most popular choice for the public’s Wildcard, martial arts performer Jesse-Jane McParland, took just 4.2% of the final vote.

The judges’ choices almost entirely matched those of the public votes throughout the week, but had the decision belonged to the public alone throughout the semi-finals, we’d have seen singer Henry Gallagher among the final line-up.

During the first semi-final, the judges opted to save dance group – and Alesha Dixon’s Golden Buzzer choice – Entity Allstars over the young crooner. But had the decision gone back to the public, the votes put Henry ahead at 17.5% to Entity Allstars’ 12.8%. The public did then have the chance to vote Henry back in via the public Wildcard, but the aforementioned Jesse-Jane eventually took that spot.
