Ant & Dec have claimed that Jai McDowall's Britain's Got Talent win disproves fix claims about the show.

The Scottish singer was the surprise victor on tonight's BGT final, beating bookies' favourite Ronan Parke and boyband New Bounce to the £100,000 grand prize.

Speaking on ITV2's More Talent about McDowall's victory, Dec said: "He was the dark horse of the competition. All the attention has been surrounding Ronan... It was a great semi-final performance and a great final performance, but a shock."

Ant commented: "He's a lovely-looking fella, a really nice guy, but I didn't really like his song tonight. But he is a nice guy and the public go for that. They just go for nice people."

Dec said: "It's amazing. Where we're standing, you can see the pulse on the side of the contestants' necks. I can see how nervous they really are. I could see on Jai that he was going twenty to the dozen. It was a lovely moment [when he won]."

Commenting on the well-publicised anonymous blog post earlier this week, which alleged that Ronan Parke was being groomed by Syco to win the show, Ant added: "It just proves that these shows are not a foregone conclusion. They say this person is dead certain to win or that Simon wants this person to win. They say it's fixed. It's not."
