Two South Holland youngsters were ready to fight their way to the stars in the finale of Britain’s Got Talent.

Poppy Gill (11) of Spalding and Dolcie Simmons (12) of Tydd St Mary were dressed as gladiators in Alesha’s Golden Buzzer act Entity Allstars, which kicked the finale off.

In spite of the 20-piece dance troupe from Essex coming 11th out of 12 acts, they were given some excellent comments from the judges.

They followed their Harry Potter spectacular from the semi-final showing off their moves to a megamix of tunes, including Alesha Dixon’s hits.

She gave them a standing ovation along with David Williams and Amanda Holden and said: “You absolutely smashed it and did yourselves proud.”

David Williams also congratulated them and said: “We’ve never seen breakdancing gladiators on Britain’s Got Talent before.”

Even Simon Cowell was impressed and said: “That has to be a winning team.”

Jules O’Dwyer and her dog act Matisse were the final winners. The duo were crowned champions with an act which brought the judges to tears telling the story of a dog that stole sausages for its three-legged friend.

They took home a whopping prize sum of £250,000 after narrowly beating magician Jamie Raven.

Welsh choir Cor Glanaethwy surprised many viewers by being placed third.
