Shadow dancers Attraction are the winners of ITV talent show Britain's Got Talent (BGT) - but the most talked about moment was an enraged woman hurling eggs at outspoken judge Simon Cowell.

The Hungarian group beat off strong competition from teenage comedian Jack Carroll and Welsh singing brothers Richard and Adam Johnson.

Cowell congratulated the winning act, saying: "It just shows that this country welcomes people from all over the world and they loved this act."

The dance troupe won the public vote after an unashamedly patriotic British-themed display, including Land Of Hope And Glory and the voice of Winston Churchill.

Their act on the final night of Britain's Got Talent told the story of the UK from the declaration of World War II to the London 2012 Olympics.

The audience was overcome with emotion at the rendering of Winston Churchill's head and a map of the nation in shadow form.

Attraction, who previously appeared on the German and Hungarian equivalents of BGT, were hot favourites to win the show despite not being British.

The judges seemed overwhelmed, and a tearful Amanda Holden said: "You couldn't have done a better performance...You've embraced Britain and we embrace you back!"

Cowell added that "you really know how to pull on the heartstrings", whilst David Walliams said that it was "fantastically moving".

Not to be outdone in the hyperbole, Alesha Dixon said that it was "the main attraction tonight... epic!"

One of the group's members said: "It's amazing and unbelievable. This is my proudest moment. Thank you very much. Thank you the British public, thank you."

The group won £250,000 and will get the chance to perform at the Royal Variety Performance.

However, the ITV talent show was overshadowed by an irate woman who threw eggs at Cowell.

She was later named as 30-year-old Natalie Holt, a former contestant on the show, who was playing in the orchestra during singing brothers Richard and Adam Johnson's performance.

The pair showed remarkable presence of mind and continued singing, despite Holt's volley of eggs. The viola player was taken off stage by security guards.

When the cameras cut to Cowell afterwards, he had removed his jacket.

He joked that he had previously tweeted he did not like eggs and said: "I really don't like eggs now."
