BGT fans ‘work out’ magician duo’s emotional act after spotting ‘obvious’ swaps

Britain's Got Talent finally returned to ITV last night, and fans couldn't wait to see what the acts had up their sleeves to try and win their way into the final.

But as father and son duo James and Dylan performed their magic trick, some people were left perplexed, whilst others were convinced they managed to work it out.

They took to social media to share their theories with other viewers, with some claiming there was a trap door whilst others noticed the father and son were wearing the same jeans and similar shoes.

James first began the trick by placing photographs around the stage before inviting new judge Ashley Banjo to come and join him.

Ashley was then asked to choose six pictures, which were hidden from the camera, and they were placed onto a table.

Dylan was then seen via video link as James proceeded to place his hand over an image one at a time while they were still hidden.

The teen then managed to guess what the photographs were, who was in them, and what they were doing in the picture.

Ashley was then left overwhelmed as the final photo showed a picture of him with his baby son Micah, who he welcomed with his wife Francesca during lockdown.

The images were then revealed to spell out Micah's name when they were placed together.

A huge image which had been hidden under a black sheet for the whole performance also then showed a huge version of the same picture of the father and son.

The big finale of the trick then saw James holding the huge image over himself as he swapped places with his son.

He then took the picture away too show he was no longer on the stage and had been replaced by Dylan.

Whilst everyone was amazed by the trick, eagled-eyed fans rushed to social media to claim they had worked out the trick.

One viewer said: "Pics were swapped for prepared ones as he walked back to the table."

Another tweeted: "The man swapped the cards he needed, the recording of his son & him was prerecorded and he ran behind the judges when they were focused on the video. Simple magic. And they used the father & son connection thing to get sympathy. I'm not impressed."

A third added: "Assuming the photos he needed were already on the table with a black back, then he placed the new cards on top before turning both over. You could at least recreate it that way."

A fourth said: ""That's not magic, he dropped the black cloth to purposely hide the fact that he lowered himself through a trapdoor. Then his son came up behind the easel and carried the poster."

A fifth agreed: "Not live and camera conveniently switched to the judges so the dad could run off the stage, video was recorded, all the pictures that fell were the same, he just needed to get them in order on the table with maybe a little mark showing which is which."

BGT continues next Saturday at 8pm on ITV.
