Britain’s Got Talent fans ‘work out’ The Witch’s identity after clue on spin-off show

Britain's Got Talent fans think they have worked out The Witch's identity during Sunday's spin-off show The Ultimate Magician.

The spin-off show saw Stephen Mulhern as host as 10 illusionists from the talent show and its global counterparts took to the stage.

While the theatre audience picked the winner, magician Eric Chien, who received a cheque for £50,000 and was crowned the Ultimate Magician.

During The Witch's performance, the mystery contestant left judges Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon and David Walliams terrified with one moment even seeing Amanda running into the audience after a snake appeared on the judging table.

Many took to social media to share their thoughts on who they think the contestant is with one eagle-eyed fan claiming it's presenter Stephen after spotting a clue.

Taking to Twitter, the viewer wrote: "Is The Witch @StephenMulhern and that’s why there’s no interview? #bgt" as they noticed The Witch didn't appear on stage to talk with the judges or Stephen.

Elsewhere, a different show watcher speculated: "Who is the Witch on #BGT then? My money is on Noel Fielding."

It comes after fans previously guessed that The Witch is BGT hosts Ant McPartlin and Dec Donnelly.

However, during the live semi-finals in May, viewers were quick to speculate that The Witch is Stephen and he was working with Ant and Dec for the performance.

Taking to Twitter, one person said at the time: "@StephenMulhern I think your the witch #bgt."

A different account put: "The Witches…. that one was Stephen Mulhern I think, one in audition was Ant and I think the third one in clip was Dec #BGT."

Another follower wrote: "Actually, The Witch DOES sound a bit like Stephen Mulhern #BGT."

While a different show watcher predicted: "The Witch is going to be Stephen Mulhern #BGT."

It comes after Stephen appeared to hint that he could be The Witch as he shared a picture of Ant's ex-wife and make-up artist Lisa Armstrong getting him ready for a mystery project over the summer.

He captioned the snap with: "Everyone keeps asking if I’m the Witch from @bgt! Well you might want to ask @lisaarmstrongmakeup what I look like before she put makeup on me!"

To which one fan replied: "WAIT SO WAS IT YOU??"

While another follower added: "I knew it, I knew it was you" with crying laughing emojis.

However, despite the theories and hints, it still remains to be seen who the mystery person is behind The Witch…
