Britain's Got Talent 2016 results: Just 3% split Richard Jones and Wayne Woodward

bgt final results

Last night's Britain's Got Talent 2016 final was one of the closest and most open ever.

Less than 3% split winner Richard Jones and runner up Wayne Woodward, while Boogie Storm and Jasmine Elcock were only a further 1% behind.

In what proved to be a VERY open final, Richard won with less than a fifth of all votes, the lowest percentage in BGT history.

Beau Dermott, Craig Ball and Trip Hazard all also posed a threat to Richard's victory, less than 10% behind him in the final run down.

At the other end, Mel and Jamie ranked in 12th place with 1.9% of the total votes.

Meanwhile, the stats from the semi-finals show that Shannon and Peter were eliminated in the second semi-final despite scoring more votes than Alex Magala, although the pair were reinstated as the judges' wild card.

Similarly, Tumar KR were voted second in the fourth semi-final but missed out on the final after losing the judges' vote to Balance. They went on to rank second in the public wild card vote, between Trip Hazard and Shannon and Peter.

Richard had the biggest victory of any semi-final, topping his heat with more than a third of all votes.

He had been the favourite to win before the live final although in the episode itself the odds swayed between him and Wayne.
