Comedian Axel Blake was crowned the winner of this year’s Britain’s Got Talent, also referred to as the BGT 2022. He defeated Aneeshwar Kunchala, Maxwell Thorpe, Jamie Leahey, Ben Nickless, Flintz & T4ylor, Tom Ball, Eva Abley, Loren Allred and 5 Star Boys to win the title.
Blake was the judges’ favourite after he earned a Golden Buzzer from none other than Simon Cowell, who appeared to have been smitten by the comic. Cowell had predicted a very bright future for Blake after watching his semi-final performance.
On Sunday night, all four judges namely Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon, David Walliams and Simon Cowell simply watched the performance since they had no say in judging the contestants.
The show was anchored by famous duo Ant McPartlin and Dec Donnelly.

His style of comedy earned him plenty of plaudits. What really impressed fans and judges alike was his ability to build a comedy show based on his WhatsApp chat. It’s this style of his comedy that makes him hugely popular.
Justifying his decision to award him a Golden Buzzer, Simon Cowell had said that the show needed Blake’s style of comedy given the trouble couple of years the country has been through.
There’s not much reporting about Blake’s partner. While he has shared his children’s photos on social media, he has never shared his partner’s photo. His net worth is believed to be estimated at $ 389,000.
