    BGT 2020: James Stott’s magic trick with Simon Cowell ‘rumbled’ by fans

    Sorry, this video isn’t available any more.

    Britain’s Got Talent viewers think they have worked out how James Stott did his explosive magic trick with Simon Cowell.

    Ex-marine James, with the help of Simon, performed one of the most horrifying magic tricks that BGT has ever seen.

    Simon asked James before he began his act: ‘Is it more dangerous for you or us?’

    Indicating to Simon he replied: ‘It’s more dangerous for us.’

    The 60-year-old then alarmingly answered: ‘Disclaimer here, I don’t want you to do this just in case something goes wrong.’

    James began his act by asking Simon to put a very sharp dagger under one of the numbered bags positioned on the judge’s desk.

    He then explained that by using his skills from his previous job he will guess which bag Simon had placed the dagger under.

    And when we thought the act couldn’t get more dangerous… it does. And it involves explosives.

    Simon is invited on to the stage where James is stood behind five white boxes, each attached to a plunger on top.

    James correctly guessed which boxes would explode on stage and was so sure he knew which one would not explode, he took the wire out of it and placed it in his mouth.

    Yikes.

    And despite impressing the judges, studio audience and viewers at home, some fans have their own theories about how the ‘Magic Marine’ performed the trick.

    Taking to Twitter one commented: ‘I reckon the Marine box guy (didn’t catch name), had fuses in each box, that he could switch on/off.. still very dramatic though!’

    Another added: ‘Anyone else see how the marine did the first trick? I can’t be the only one who saw how it was all set up.’

    One tweeted: ‘If you watch back, the Magic Marine blinked when he said number 3. I think he knew in some way that 3 was the explosive. No idea how he knew, but he knew.’

    ‘Changing the decision at the end only goes to prove he knew which box linked to which detonator.’ another commented.

    Britain’s Got Talent returns on Saturday at 8pm on ITV
