Duplic8 have beaten Bitter Harvest and Dance Illusion to become the winners of Sky1 talent show Got to Dance 2014, taking home the £250,000 jackpot prize.

The street duo - comprising former Britain's Got Talent finalist Tobias Mead, 26, and 13-year-old Jak Tuite-Leach - received the most public votes out of the top three acts, after the other finalists Boyband, Dan-I and Sia, IMD, Kaine, Original Kidz and Unity Academy were cut earlier in tonight's live show.

Duplic8's victory came as something of a surprise, as they were the only act whose final routine received any red stars from the judges.

Ashley Banjo said: "The level of dance tonight has been sky-high. I like you guys so so much, but I don't think your dance level is high enough to win."

Kimberly Wyatt added: "There were some serious lulls in this performance, you didn't have the hype you normally come with. I did feel that it fell short."

However, their mentor Adam Garcia defended them, saying: "They couldn't have hit much harder. They give the audience what they want."

The result makes Adam - who returned to Got To Dance this year after a one-series absence - the first winning judge of the show's new team-based format.

Elsewhere, Glaswegian contemporary theatre group Dance Illusion, who were on Team Ashley, captivated the audience with a routine that saw one of its members disappear - only to pop up behind the judges at their desk, giving Kimberly the "shock of her life".

"That was so irresponsible. She is carrying a child people!" joked Adam. "Ashley loves a practical jokes, I think he's just pulled off one of the biggest of all time!"

"Right as the curtain was going up, it wasn't as effortless as it could have been... then she's standing behind me staring!" commented the former Pussycat Doll, after calming down. "That was exquisite!"

Bitter Harvest - real names Shannon and Peter Parker - were praised, with their mentor Ashley saying: "You prove anyone, at any age can follow their dream."

"It's like watching you dance is celebrating everything important in life. I'm pregnant, I'm crying and it's definitely a gold," added Kimberly.

The final - hosted by Davina McCall in front of a 6,000-strong audience at London's Earls Court - also featured guest performances from The Vamps and last year's Got To Dance champion Lukas McFarlane.

It is currently unclear whether Got To Dance will return for a sixth series.
