British Isles v's Great Britain Ancestry DNA

Could somebody please tell me the difference between the British Isles DNA on Family Tree DNA and Great Britain on Ancestry DNA as I have wildly varying results. 25% with Ancestry and 78% on here.

British Isles on FTDNA refers to the primarily Celtic populations of Britain and Ireland while Great Britain in Ancestry DNA refers to the Anglo-Saxon part of Britain.
