BGT viewers 'uncover' The Witch's identity after creepy prank on judges

Britain’s Got Talent fans are speculating about The Witch’s identity after a shocking prank was pulled on Saturday night’s episode.

The latest instalment of the ITV competition showed The Witch carry out a stomach-turning trick on BGT judges Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon and David Walliams.

Viewers logged onto Twitter to share their takes on the creepy stunt, with many taking guesses at who could be under the prosthetics and makeup, the Mirror reported.

The Witch took to the stage only to scare the lights out of the group.

First, they handed out apples from a sinister sack to David, Alesha and finally Amanda while reciting a creepy chant.

Amanda had a pristine apple in her hand, which The Witch then crushed up to reveal creepy crawly maggots and cockroaches that scattered the judge’s desk.

Alesha jumped out of her seat and fled the judging panel in fright after the explosion of insects, saying she would not return until they had been cleared.

Several fans suggested that the contestant could be none other than one of the ITV talent show’s hosts, Ant McPartlin or Dec Donnelly.

“I think ‘The Witch’ is Dec in disguise!” wrote one person, as another person said: “That witch actually looked like Ant on an undercover! Haha”.

Another viewer said: “When that witch came out I thought it was Ant undercover and I don’t know why”.

“No, why does the witch actually look like Ant?” someone else suggested.

Elsewhere in Saturday’s instalment of the show, Britain’s Got Talent viewers were distracted as many claimed they recognised a contestant in dance troupe 5 Star Boys from BBC One dance competition The Greatest Dancer.

Five schoolboys took to the stage of Britain’s Got Talent and said they were performing to take a stand against the bullying they faced because of their passion for dancing.

The young dancers – Toby-Jay, Ollie, Joey, Beau and Adam – formed the group 5 Star Boys after they met at a dance convention in Birmingham and performed an emotional routine on the ITV stage in Saturday’s episode.

Their performance of You Will Be Found, from the hit musical Dear Evan Hansen, touched on their bullying ordeal.

As the boys performed, several Britain’s Got Talent viewers took to Twitter to congratulate them on the routine, with some even deeming it Golden Buzzer-worthy, while several ITV fans also said they thought they recognised one of the dancers from another TV show.
