Britain's Got Talent has become a staple of British TV since it first hit our screens back in 2007, with opera singer Paul Potts taking the crown at the end of the first series. Of course, we all remember that comedian Jon Courtenay was crowned the winner in 2020, before the show was postponed in 2021 due to the pandemic.

But who were the winners of the other series? Can you remember which year Ashley and Pudsey stole our hearts?

As the 2022 ended on Sunday 5th June, we take a trip down memory lane and have a look back at the previous winners of the popular talent show.
