DAGENHAM dance troupe Diversity are set for stardom after winning tonight's Britain's Got Talent final.
Around 15million viewers watched as the 10-strong group beat acts including singers Susan Boyle and 10-year-old Hollie Steel to scoop the title.
Bookies' favourite, 48-year-old Ms Boyle came runner-up to 14-1 outsiders Diversity.
Their stunned choreographer Ashley Banjo told hosts Ant McPartlin and Dec Donnelly: "When you said our name I thought I was dreaming. Everyone who has voted - you have changed our lives."
The group, whose members are aged from 12 to 25, first got together in 2007.
They stunned celebrity judges Simon Cowell, Piers Morgan and Amanda Holden with their transformer dance routine.
