Daily Star TV gives you all the latest interviews and spoilers and Ed Gleave will send you telly’s hot takes straight to your inbox every Sunday

Nadiah Adu-Gyamfi has been crowned the first-ever winner of Walk the Line.

The singer fought off tough competition from four other acts in the final episode of the ITV series to win a whooping £500,000.

Judges Gary Barlow, Alesha Dixon, Dawn French and Craig David were back behind the desk to offer their advice as the five nervous acts sung their hearts out.

Over the past five nights, presenter Maya Jama has introduced viewers to different performers hoping to walk away with the eye-watering cash prize.

Nadia Adu-Gyiamfi won the public vote for a second night in a row on Thursday after she chose to walk the line against new competition, going with the judges and her family's advise.

This followed her first win on Wednesday night that pushed competition favourite Ella Rothwell out of the running.

Although, Ella did not walk the line for her fourth night following her hatrick win since the series air, but decided to play it safe and take the £40,000 offer that she grew from a £10,000 win each night.

Nadiah battled it out against Greg Charles, The Beatbox Collective, Rodney Earl Clarke and Scarlet Thomas in the series finale on Friday night.

Presenter Maya later revealed to Nadiah that Scarlet was her biggest competition and the contestant had to decide if she wanted to cash out for £40,000 or "walk the line".

Nadiah decided to take the risk and it paid off as the performer ended up being named the winner of the show.

Fans rushed to social media to give their verdict on the first winner of Walk the Line.

Taking to Twitter, one fan penned: "Nadiah absolutely smashed it!"

Another added: "WOW @ Nadiah Adu-Gyamfi"

A third person posted: "Well done Nadiah"

While a fourth social media user said:

Speaking to ITV about the new show, creator Simon Cowell revealed he was "thrilled" to develop a show that offers contestants a "life-changing cash prize".

Judge Craig has also previously commented on the "innovative" and "edgy" style of the talent show, which he said was the reason he was "so excited to join the panel".

"I’m really vibed by the quality of the contestants I’ve seen so far and love that they have the chance to bet on themselves every step of the way,’ he said."

Despite being on for six nights in a row, presenter Maya Jama was forced to log into her Twitter to help fans understand the rules of the competition earlier this week.

She penned: "It will make a lot more sense ep 2. Tomoro Ella has a 20k offer..if she thinks she performed better than the 4 new challengers she can decide to leave with 20k or walk the line into the next ep.. but if a new challenger beats her & she walks the line she’ll leave with nothing."
