BRITAIN'S Got Talent viewers have slammed the final as a 'fix’ after a ‘professional' comic won – and declared another act the REAL winner.
Comic and Simon Cowell's golden buzzer act Axel Blake, 33, was crowned the winner of the 15th series of the ITV show on Sunday night.
Young ventriloquist Jamie Leahey placed second, and singer Tom Ball came in third.
But some fans weren't happy with the result because Axel, a property maintenance manager from west London, is already a very successful comedian without appearing on the programme.
He has his own Amazon show called Axel Blake: I'm Not Gonna Lie.
Axel has also presented for well known channels such as SBTV and UNILAD and many of his comedy sketches have gone viral.

The Sun have contacted ITV for comment.
Meanwhile others took to the social media platform to share who they thought should have won.
They are split between Tom and Jamie as the real winners.
One simply tweeted: "Jamie should have won."
A second chimed in: "Jamie and Chuck were absolutely robbed tonight."
Another said: "Axel should not even have been in the show. The winner should have been Tom Ball by a country mile. 2nd Jamie and Chuck. It is clearly a fix. #bgt."
A fourth added: "tom ball was note perfect and what a performance #BGT robbed."
"Axel Blake winning..!? That’s some fixed b*****it. Should have been Tom Ball," another said.
Axel was a clear winner as he won with 19.7 per cent of the final vote.
Meanwhile it was very close between Jamie, who had 14.7, and Tom who received 14.2.
After the winner was announced the funny man fell to his knees as Ant and Dec said his name.
The audience took their feet as a shocked Axel said: "I am shaking!"
Simon told Axel after his win: "I feel really emotional for you right now.
