Norwegian comedian Viggo Venn has been crowned the winner of Britain’s Got Talent 2023, scooping the £250,000/Ksh43 million prize and a spot on the bill at the Royal Variety Performance.
Venn kept the audience entertained with another high-vis-inspired routine in the grand final.
Dancer Lilliana Clifton, 13, and 14-year-old magician Cillian O’Connor placed in second and third respectively – but missed out on the title.
Venn, 33, had the judges laughing when he forced Simon Cowell to wear a matching high-vis jacket as rose petals were thrown over the pair before the whole audience erupted into high-vis.
The audience was in raptures after the performance, chanting: “One more time,” in reference to his first audition on the show where he danced to Daft Punk’s hit.

Other child stars who dominated the final included Tonioli’s golden buzzer act Ghetto Kids, who opened the show with a routine to a medley of songs including Africa by Toto and shared a flag of their home country of Uganda.
The group of six children aged between six and thirteen years old has had quite a smooth run through this year’s edition of the highly contested competition through to the grand finale.
The finale held on 4th June 2023 featured the cream from the last stages of the edition including Ghetto Kids, Malakai Bayoh, Duo Odyssey, Musa Motha, Amy Lou, Viggo Venn, Olivia Lynes, Travis George, Cillian O’Connor, Lillianna Clifton.
