The Wanted win best group award

The Wanted have been voted best group in this year's Virgin Media Awards

The Wanted have beaten One Direction in the latest battle of the boybands.

The I Found You singers have been named best group in the Virgin Media Awards 2013, which was voted for by more than one million members of the public.

The Wanted - Max George, Siva Kaneswaran, Tom Parker, Jay McGuiness and Nathan Sykes - beat former X Factor contestants One Direction to the title by just 0.08%.

In another shock result, magician Dynamo won TV show of the year, for his show Magician Impossible, with 36% of the vote, ahead of cult hits Sherlock and Doctor Who. Sherlock was third favourite with 14% of voters and Doctor Who had just 8.6% of the vote.

But Sherlock still managed to claim the award for TV moment of the year for its cliffhanger at the end of series two, which saw Sherlock apparently leap to his death, and then disappear.

Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch also won best TV actor, narrowly beating Doctor Who star Matt Smith.

Meanwhile, teen heartthrob Justin Bieber retained his crown as best solo artist with a whopping 56% of the votes.

And Twilight stars Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson were voted hottest actress and hottest actor, respectively.

When the powers that be realise you mean business, they'll work hard to update the regulations. You'll make several new friends after getting involved with this cause.More
