Declan Donnelly has hinted that he had a bit of a night after Sunday's Britain's Got Talent finale as he joked that "only a bacon sandwich will do".

Over the course of the last week he hosted the five live semi-final and final episodes of the ITV programme on his own for the first time, after his co-host Ant McPartlin took a step away from his TV commitments.

Donnelly, who was praised by head judge Simon Cowell for his efforts across the week, also thanked fans for messages of support after his solo hosting stint.

He took to Twitter on Monday afternoon following Sunday's grand finale, and wrote: "There are some days when only a bacon sandwich will do.

"Thanks again for all the nice messages, hugely appreciated. What a week!"

He added a message of congratulations to "worthy winner", comedian Lost Voice Guy, and signed off: "Annnnd breeeeeeaaaaathe! D x."
