Lost Voice Guy 'blown away' by support after Britain's Got Talent win

Monday 4th June 2018

Lost Voice Guy has become the first comedian to win Britain’s Got Talent after a jam packed grand final.

The comic, real name Lee Ridley, scooped the £250,000 and winning a spot at The Royal Variety Performance.

The 37-year-old, who has cerebral palsy, brought the house down with his hilarious routine, which saw him joke about his disability and his unfortunate tumble after having a few too many post semi-final drinks.

Using his electronic voice computer, he said as his win was announced by host Declan Donnelly: "I have been blown away by the support of the judges and the general public."

Judge Simon Cowell said to him after the results were announced: "You so deserved this.”

Comic Robert White was runner up of the ITV show and singer Donchez Dacres was third.

A total of 11 acts competed in the final.

The Giant Brothers provided a programme highlight with their daring balancing act, which they had never completed without a safety harness before the final.

The brothers walked across a step platform with one balancing the other on his head, before a daring jump at the end.

The final also included performances from the West End cast of Tina: The Musical and the cast of Vegas show Magic Mike, with a surprise guest appearance from Channing Tatum, who plays the title role.
