Statement from Twist & Pulse:
"Auditioning for the show 9 years ago was the best decision we ever made, we couldn’t have even asked for a place like runners up. To then come back to compete on ‘BGT The Champions’ was an honour in itself, to then go on one step further and be crowned champions, is mind blowing! Becoming the champion of champions has been a dream come true. Next year we celebrate 10 years of Twist and Pulse so we've already got a great tour lined up and we can’t wait to see what else the future holds for us."
