Britain’s Got Talent star Paul Potts has given comedian Jon Courtenay a bit of advice after he was crowned the winner of the 2020 series.
Jon, made show history last night after he was the first golden buzzer act to win the show.
The day after his big win, Jon has be inundated with messages of support online – including from previous BGT winner Paul.
Opera singer Paul won the first ever show back in 2007, with his rendition of Nessun Dorma.
He has since gone on to have a successful career, with his album One Chance topping the charts in 13 countries.
Taking to Twitter, Paul sent Jon a tweet congratulating him, as well giving him some words of wisdom about winning the show.
‘I note usual comments after BGT finishes (well-done Jon Courtenay ) about how winning isn’t life-changing as “you’re forgotten after a month”,’ he began.
‘Why should fame be deciding factor in success? If you can, like I have make your hobby your career and do what you love then u r a success.’
Understandably, Jon was very emotional when Ant and Dec announced he was the winner, so much so he was left speechless.
‘Don’t make me speak,’ he told the hosts.
When asked about how he felt, Jon simply replied: ‘I tried not to think about it because I am really bad at hiding disappointment.
‘This morning for the first time, this sounds really dramatic and I literally, woke up with an idea for a song for the Royal Variety Performance.’
‘I wrote it down and I tried not to think about it as being a sign because as I say it would be too much pressure,’ he added.
Jon will receive £250,000 and the opportunity to perform at the Royal Variety Performance.
Britain’s Got Talent is available on the ITV hub.
