Taking to Twitter, Paul sent John a tweet congratulating him and also giving him some words of wisdom on winning the show.
He tweeted, “I note unusual comments after BGT finishes (well-done Jon Courtenay) about how winning isn’t life-changing as ‘you’re forgotten after a month.’ Why should fame be deciding factor in success? If you can, like I have, make your hobby your career and do what you love then u r a success.”
