As Twist and Pulse struggled to take in the good news, their families were left ecstatic and were seen jumping up and down in their seats.

The pair then hugged each other and were heard whispering: ‘Oh my God, what the hell man!’

After gaining their composure, Glen said: ‘I am absolutely speechless! I can’t thank you guys enough, I’m holding back everything right now.’

While Ashley took the opportunity to thank their fans for voting, adding: ‘It literally feel like… amazing. I’ve said it before, things like this don’t happen to me and my best friend Glen.

Ant and Dec then turned to runners-up Stavros Flatley, with son Lagi Demetriou giving an impassioned speech thanking their fans and his father.

‘And I just want to say thank you for everything over the last 10 years and thank you dad for everything you’ve done for me. Honestly, thank you so much.’

Ahead of the show, Lagi told MailOnline: ‘When we got to The Champions, I thought this was the right time to leave. But Simon Cowell told me not to quit forever. So I will return for some shows.’ 

Twist and Pulse emerged victorious after beating the nine other acts who had been hoping to to be crowned champions, including Ukrainian sand artist Kseniya Simonova, who finished in third place.

Shocked: ‘I’ve said it before, things like this don’t happen to me and my best friend Glen. I’d like to say thank you so much, this means the world to us, honestly!’

While Simon remarked: ‘We’ve seen a lot of dance act that that’s come on this show and I’m sitting here thinking, I actually haven’t got a clue what to say right now.
