The Selsey holiday park runs the competition every year and the contest regularly attracts big name performers, including singers Sam Bailey and Shayne Ward in previous years.

This year West End star Darren Day performed some of his hits before presenting the prizes to the competition winners.

The runner-up in the competition was 16-year-old Bryony-Rose Brookman, who sang Roberta Flack’s 1972 classic ‘The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face’.

Bryony-Rose, who is from Worthing, picked up a cheque for £500.

She said: “I actually felt really nervous backstage – I had been unwell all of that week so I was worried about coughing on stage.

“Luckily, once I was on the stage I completely relaxed and it was amazing being able to perform to so many people – especially Darren Day!”

Wayde Bowry, who hails from Northolt in Middlesex, took home the top spot in the Bunn Leisure’s Got Talent competition.

Wayde, whose stage name is Dynamic, said: “It felt amazing to win the competition.

“I entered last year and made it to the final, but didn’t win.”

Wayde wowed the audience with his own mash up of urban dance breakbeats.

John Bunn, managing director of Bunn Leisure, said: “We were very impressed by the entries we had this year, ranging from singers, to dancers, to comedians.

“It was a very difficult decision for the judges, but we felt Wayde and Bryony-Rose really stood out.

“Congratulations of them both and all those who took part this year.”
