Britain’s Got Talent viewers expose magician Ben Hart’s ‘obvious’ switch in semi-final trick


BRITAIN’S Got Talent viewers have exposed magician Ben Hart’s “obvious” switch in his semi-final trick.

The 28-year-old hopeful landed a spot in Sunday night’s finale after wowing fans and the judges with his act last night, but not everybody was impressed.

Ben’s trick has been ‘exposed’ by cynical viewers

In the semi-final, Ben filled his segment by making cards and matchsticks vanish into thin air before they reappeared in unexpected places.

One instance saw a card disappear from underneath judge Simon Cowell’s hands, and Alesha Dixon was left stunned when a different card replaced the matchbox that she had been asked to hold in her hands without her realising.

After watching Ben’s performance, cynical viewers flocked to social media to expose what he had done, with many convinced that they had figured out the magic.

Ben also performed an impressive trick with a glass, saucer, and red cloth that the cynics believe played a key role in the trick.

One fan wrote: “I LOVE Ben but watch the card in Simon’s hand – you can see him take it out by sleight of hand!”

Another added: “Clearly had something drop in the glass to react.

“Whilst he took the red cloth off and placed it down he picked up the card with matches and swapped it with the club card which he had in his hand from his pocket.”

Others remained thoroughly impressed with the act, praising Ben on their own pages.


Despite the doubters, Ben ended up nabbing the most public votes in last night’s show, winning him a spot in Sunday’s grand final.

The judges then had to choose between runners up magician Graeme Mathews and singer Mark McMullan.

Simon took the vote to deadlock, with Mark being the one to join Ben in the finale.
