There was an unexpected twist for one of the acts in the final of Britain's Got Talent on Saturday night in front of millions of viewers.
It's the Britain's Got Talent final tonight, with 11 contenders competing for the chance to perform at the Royal Variety Show.
Theatre act Attraction and singer Jordan O'Keefe yesterday became the last two acts to get through to the final of Britain's Got Talent.
More than 13 million people watched the Britain's Got Talent live final last night, which saw Simon Cowell get pelted with eggs by a suspected former reject, ITV said today.
The show, won by Hungarian shadow dance troupe Attraction, was watched by a peak audience of 13.1 million, with an average of 11.1 million viewers across the two-and-a-half show, the broadcaster said.
The viewers saw Natalie Holt, 30, a member of Welsh singing brothers Richard and Adam Johnson backing group, rush to the front of the stage during their performance throw eggs at the judges.

It's disappointing that someone tried to sabotage our performance but we're proud that we made it to the end of our song.
Thanks to everyone for their support.
We've had a great time.
ITV confirmed that the woman who threw the egg was 30-year-old Natalie Holt a member of Richard and Adam's backing group.
– Natalie Holt
I want to apologise to Richard and Adam for overshadowing their performance.
I've never done anything like this before and in hindsight I have realised it was a silly thing to do.
– Britain's Got Talent statement
During tonight's show an incident took place during the finale of Richard and Adams performance.
Natalie Holt (age 30) was part of the backing group for their performance and as a result of her misguided actions the police were called.
However, we have decided to take no further action at this stage.
Hungarian shadow dance troupe Attraction were voted the winners of ITV’s Britain’s Got Talent tonight, picking up £250,000 and a slot performing at the Royal Variety Performance.
The troupe of shadow dancers have previously been on the German and Hungarian equivalents of BGT, but said they wanted to win this show because this was the biggest programme of its type.
It's reported the woman who ran on stage in the final of Britain's Got Talent belonged to a musical quartet. While three of the quartet were not in the studio when the eggs were thrown, it appears one of them may have been.
We were as surprised as all of you.
Just to clarify…. The other 3 of us were working elsewhere today and found out when you did.

Well done to the guys for carrying on. They were amazing.
Britain's Got Talent judge Simon Cowell said he had tweeted about his dislike of eggs a day before the finals tonight.
@sallyfinestone I hate eggs
