BRITAIN’S Got Talent is returning for another year, and with it comes a brand new batch of hopefuls.
But what did last year’s winner Lee Ridley aka Lost Voice Guy? And who took home the crown in 2017? Here’s the lowdown.
What did Lost Voice Guy Lee Ridley get for winning Britain’s Got Talent in 2018?
There were a number of prizes on offer for triumphing on Britain’s Got Talent.
Winners have always received a cash prize which has varied in amounts since the show launched back in 2007.
Initially the prize was £100,000 but that went up to a cool £500k in 2012.
But, sadly for Lee the prize pot went down in 2018 to “only” £250,000 – still not bad though.
As well as a tidy bit of cash, Lee was also given the honour of performing at the annual Royal Variety Performance.
While it was traditionally attended by Her Majesty the Queen, she has not made it to a show since 2012.
In 2018 Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were in attendance.

Who won Britain’s Got Talent in 2017?
He beat 11 other acts to scoop the top prize of £250,000 and will perform at this year’s Royal Variety Performance in front of the Queen.
When his name was announced by hosts Ant and Dec he fell to the ground with shock.
Runner-up Issy Simpson was gracious in defeat and thanked the judges for bringing her onto the show.
Following his crowning moment, Tokio took to the stage for a final time and played the audience out.
