An acoustic guitar player has walked away with £1,000 after wowing the crowds with his performance at the finals of a music competition.

Declan Zapala was voted as the winner of 'The Big One £1,000 Talent Show' after reaching the final alongside five other acts at the Backline Live venue in Guildford, reports Get Surrey.

The acoustic guitar player, who is a student of the Royal College of Music, came out on top ahead of rock band White Pigeon, scratch artist DJ Zappa and singer Natalie Ross.

Andy Kettle from Global Music, one of the judges that put Zapala through to the final, said he was a worthy winner.
