British talent show viewers confused as Simon Cowell disappears during mind-blowing magic act

Britain’s Got Talent ended on a huge cliffhanger on Saturday, as Simon Cowell dramatically disappeared from the stage at the hands of three returning magicians.

Fans of the ITV reality talent show were left dumbfounded when the ‘utterly unbelievable’ Magicians Assemble appeared to make the head judge, 64, vanish.

The magic group is made up of three former BGT contestants: Ben Hart, Colin Cloud, and Elizabeth The Haunting.

Magicians Assemble told the audience they came from the future and eerily finished each other’s sentences.

The trio then told the judges and audience that they ‘found a journal’ which will allow them to enter ‘someone’s memory’.

They performed tricks such as turning liquid into sand before falling into, but saved their most dramatic trick for the very end.

The judges were then asked to choose cards, selecting a page from a book and rolling dice to find a series of numbers.

Aidan shaved Ben’s hair off and the number which was revealed on his scalp was the same as the one the judges had picked before.

Then, Colin invited Simon on stage, reassuring him he was ‘completely safe’ as he blindfolded him.

Suddenly Ben then threw an hourglass to the ground, smashing it. Lights flashed and Simon was gone – and confetti lay where he once stood.

Amanda Holden asked: ‘Where is Simon?’ and the question was scarily repeated by Simon voice’s in a teaser for Sunday’s episode.

Fans on X, formerly Twitter, also demanded to know Simon’s whereabouts, and went onto praise the magicians for their audition.

They wrote:¬†‘Simon Cowell disappears in a magic trick! Where is he?!?! #BritainsGotTalent #bgt’;¬†

‘Wait what …. It’s just ended!! Where’s Simon, did the magicians get through!! WTF #BritainsGotTalent’;¬†
