Lost Voice Guy has been crowned the winner of Britain’s Got Talent 2018, making history as the first comedian to ever win the talent competition.
Sunday’s grand final saw the top 11 acts perform for the voting public and following the performances, host Dec Donnelly revealed who finished in the top three.
Lost Voice Guy, Donchez Dacres, and Robert White all made the top three. Dec revealed that Donchez Dacres finished in third place, leaving the two comics in the top two. Dec then revealed Lost Voice Guy as the winner.
The comic was overcome with joy as he realised he had won. He takes home a prize of £250,000 and a spot on the Royal Variety Performance. He suffers from complications from cerebral palsy, leaving him unable to speak. So, he performs his routines using a voice synthesiser.
“I’m very excited to perform for the Queen,” he said. “I’ve loved her since she sang ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’. I have been blown away by the support of the judges and the general public. I’ve got so much love from everyone and I’m really grateful for it all.”
