James’ son Dylan then emerged from the audience with a wallet in hand, which contained the same card as Simon’s with Eric’s name written on it.
However, it was this moment which left viewers in uproar as they believed they’d rumbled the secrets behind the magic.
Taking to Twitter, one wrote: “He picked that card in the audience and wrote on it didn’t he #BritainsGotTalent.”
Another added on the social media platform: “So magic man on #BGT used two effects with no credit. Maybe next time load the notes app before Simon picks a number, the five of hearts was fan-forced, he then did a double lift to swap the card to a blank card, and the card wasn’t in the wallet, well until the end.”
