Britain's Got Talent's Nabil Abdulrashid shared a powerful statement on Twitter on Saturday, after missing out on winning the variety show to comic Jon Courtenay.

The comedian, 35, declared that he 'came to make a point' with his stand-up performance, which gained praise from some fans for 'pushing boundaries', while others suggested his performance was 'too political' for a family show. 

North London-born Nabil still managed to flash a smile as he left London Studios in Waterloo alongside his fellow finalists and judges Ashley Banjo, Amanda Holden and David Walliams later that evening.

He added: 'I’m tweeting this now to tell you, don’t be upset that I didn’t win. I wasn’t meant to.. please don’t say I was robbed! It wasn’t mine to be taken. The real prize for me is your live and support as well as the experiences gained and doors opened

'Please don’t troll anyone on my behalf and don’t make any bad remarks about the wonderful acts in the top 3 I’m sure all our paths will cross again.. in a year when most comics aren’t working I’m now almost a household name. Alhamdulillah.

'Lastly.. whatever you do.. do it with all your effort and be yourself! I would rather fall short of the prize but stay true to me and what I represent than water myself down or change to win. So my material did it “cost me” victory..
