Andrew De Silva has been named the winner of Australia's Got Talent 2012.

The singer-songwriter followed in the footsteps of previous winners such as teenage singer Jack Vidgen and dance group Justice Crew by claiming the title on Wednesday evening (July 25).

De Silva was previously a member of ARIA award-winning pop group CDB, but quit when he was diagnosed with cancer.

He credited the show with offering him "a chance to share my story, share my music" and said that he will use his AU$250,000 (£166,683) winnings to clear off debts and fund his music career.

Country rockers The Wolfe Brothers finished in second place, while quick change act Soul Mystique placed third.

Australia's Got Talent airs on the Seven Network.
