Britain's Got Talent came to a close last night (Sunday 2nd June), after weeks of entertaining auditions and heartwarming golden buzzer moments.


Over the course of the live semi-finals, 10 acts made it to the final, including golden buzzer acts Sydney Christmas, Ssaulabi Performance Troupe and Haribow.

However, only one could emerge victorious and take the crown from reigning champ Viggo Venn.

After much anticipation, Amanda Holden's golden buzzer act Sydnie Christmas was revealed as the winner of Britain's Got Talent 2024!

Britain's Got Talent champions don't just get to take home bragging rights, either. Along with the title of Britain's Got Talent 2024 winner, Sydnie will bank a life-changing cash prize of £250,000, as well as the chance to perform at the Royal Variety Performance.

Fans were quick to express their excitement on X following Sydnie's win, with many pointing out that she is the first solo female act without a dog to ever win the contest.

"A woman has never won this show unless she's had a dog by her side… Sydnie Christmas deserves to win #BGT," one fan wrote.

Another fan posted: "Sydnie Christmas is phenomenal. Glad she won. A phenomenal singer. She’s got an incredible career ahead of her. Can’t wait to see what happens to her next!"

Appearing on This Morning today (3rd June), Sydnie was asked whether she remembers the moment she was crowned winner.

She responded: "Not really! I just remember shutting my eyes and then just punching the air, like I’d scored a try at a rugby match. I just couldn't believe my life."

She added that she "can't wait" to perform at the Royal Variety Performance for King Charles, and said: "I’m just so thankful that everyone has seen something in me."
