Opera Singer Is TV Talent Winner
Opera-singing phone salesman Paul Potts has won the final of TV variety show Britain's Got Talent.
Potts, from Port Talbot, south Wales, beat six-year-old singer Connie Talbot, from Sutton Coldfield, who had wowed the judges, who included Simon Cowell.
The winner of the ITV1 programme, presented by Ant and Dec, received a cheque for £100,000 and a spot at the Royal Variety Performance.
Some 11 million people saw the hopefuls perform in the show's live final.
Viewing figures dropped slightly to 10.6 million for the later results broadcast at 2200 BST, overnight audience figures show.
"The whole country has gone Paul Potts potty," said host Ant McPartlin who announced during the show that two million people had cast their vote.
