Comedian Nabil Abdulrashid may have lost out on winning Britain's Got Talent last night but it appears the controversial star isn't going anywhere.
Following his performance yesterday, which saw him tackle a range of topical issues from racism, politics and the Ofcom complaints that have plagued the ITV talent show this year from trolls.
Nabil, who was Alesha Dixon's golden buzzer choice, lost out on first price to fellow funnyman Jon Courtenay, who stole viewers hearts with his witty and uplifting musical rundown of the year's events.
But it's not the last we'll be hearing from Nabil as he took to his official Twitter account this morning.
Speaking to his new founded 25,000 followers, Nabil revealed he has a "big announcement" coming tomorrow.
He said: "Wake up in the morning and see that some of my favourite comedians are now following me.. My email full and WhatsApp exploding with loving messages..
"I guess I did something right. Big announcement coming tomorrow!!"
Fans were thrilled by the news and rushed to share their excitement.
One tweeted back in response to Nabil's tweet: "Somehow I get the idea that winning wasn't really your goal though it would have been nice. So would the money. We know that the racists were rattled.
"The key is that you've made an impact and that you're going to be a huge pivotal point in Uk entertainment."

A second said: "You may have not won BGT, however your material shared has increased awareness. Thank you for stepping out and addressing issues of the diverse communities. Be the voice of change."
Another commented: "I'm so glad you got to the final and pissed off the racists! Your stuff is spot on. You didn't need to win BGT to get yourself up to another level. People love you!"
"Well done for all you said. You may not have picked up the winner’s spot on BGT but you gained the heart of many. You will go on to succeed," tweeted one fan.
However it wasn't all love as the trolls were out in full force again following Nabil's performance as some dubbed him "racist".
Nabil's jokes took aim at a number of different issues, including race, veganism, Islamaphobia and the death of George Floyd.
And he claimed at the end of his routine if he "won tonight" and "made history" that people would "deconstruct it because I am black".
He said: "Before I go I want to say, I hope I win tonight because it will make history, but I'm already sad because I know if I do, people will deconstruct it because I am black.
"The same way they said Alesha only gave me a golden buzzer because I'm black, even though I'm the first black person she's given a buzzer too in three years."
