HUNDREDS of competition winners turned out to be snapped with the winners of Britain's Got Talent television show
Security officers at The Glades shopping centre in Bromley ensured no unwanted fans made it through the barriers to dance group Diversity, who appeared at Head music store last Thursday evening.
The 11-member ensemble, who were watched by 18 million people in the final of the ITV show, met youngsters from Bromley Deaf Children's Society before chatting with fans who had entered a competition to have their photograph taken with them. Group choreographer Ashley Banjo said: "It's great to be back in Bromley. We always get a good crowd when we come here."
Nana Boaitey, 15, who was queuing up, said: "It's unbelievable. They all have something about them, they have everything. They have such nice personalities.
"They must be so tired because they are all such hard workers but look at them: they are laughing and joking with everyone. The best looking is Ashley but they are all amazing."
Her sister, Akosua Boaitey, 12, who has 848 photographs of the group on her laptop, said: "Ashley is a really good choreographer and really good looking. When we found out we won we were screaming."
On top of the £100,000 they won for beating favourite Susan Boyle on the ITV show, Diversity are due to meet the Queen when they dance at the Royal Variety Performance in Blackpool's Opera House on December 7 as part of their prize.
Frontman Ashley Banjo added: "We are looking forward to it. It's the main prize so it will be good to actually do it."
Meanwhile Beckenham-born DJ Talent, who appeared alongside Diversity on Britain's Got Talent, has revealed he is backing runner-up Susan Boyle for the Christmas number one.
The gold-toothed rapper, whose real name is Anthony Ghosh, believes the Scottish singer nicknamed SuBo will hit the top spot over the festive period with her debut album I Dreamed a Dream.
He said: "Susan started out like me as a contestant on Britain's Got Talent now she is one of the most famous people on the planet. Susan Boyle is a normal person with a basic lifestyle but she has the voice of an angel.
"I will be backing SuBo for number one this Christmas. I wish her all the best in the future. She is going to be a successful artist.
