All the Bgt winners: Ranking the winning acts by their success post-Britain's Got Talent

1 June 2015 8:29 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Congratulations to Jules O'Dwyer and her loveable border collie Matisse who won Britain's Got Talent last night (May 31). We must admit we came over a tad teary-eyed when Matisse's three-legged collie companion Skippy made his debut in their final act.

Last night's final prompted us to look back at all eight winners from the ITV talent show to see how they faired after their victories.

From Collabro to Pudsey the dog - which acts have had the most success post-bgt? Here's our ranking below:

1. Paul Potts

Paul Potts stunned the judges, audience and viewers of Bgt alike with his breathtaking rendition of 'Nessun Dorma' on the ITV talent show's first run in 2007. His audition became a YouTube sensation and was later confirmed as the fourth most viewed YouTube video in the UK.

Following his transition from Carphone Warehouse salesman to Bgt winner, Potts released his debut album One Chance »

Britain's Got Talent's Collabro sign £1m Us record deal

22 April 2015 3:19 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Britain's Got Talent winners Collabro have signed a Us record deal with Sony Masterworks.

The Sun reports that the contract - which will see them releasing in the Us this summer - is worth £1m.

Sony Masterworks' senior vice president Mark Cavell described Collabro as "tremendously talented".

"I am sure they will win over both the hearts and ears of Americans," he added.

Meanwhile, Collabro member Jamie Lambert said that he has seen a lot of fans "campaigning for Us promotion" online.

Collabro interview: 'We've been painted as squeaky clean but we're not!'

"Who knows what this year might bring?" he added. "This time last year we'd only just auditioned for Bgt so anything can happen."

Collabro, who will release their second album Act Two in the UK later this year, won Britain's Got Talent in June 2014 and joined Simon Cowell's Syco label just days later.
