Spare a thought for the poor Britain’s Got Talent stagehand who accidentally starred in Wednesday night’s semi-final.
As kids magical dance group Acrocadabra finished their routine with a flourish, pulling a cloth off a box to reveal that the boy inside had magically disappeared, they also inadvertently revealed a member of the ITV show’s production team half-crouched behind the prop – with a look of shock on his face.

The dancers from Birmingham had been performing a dance and acrobatics routine with added magic tricks, to the Little Mix song Black Magic. Unfortunately they couldn’t make the stage hand disappear in time…

Did anyone else see the random bald man appear behind the glass box on that dance act on BGT??? He just froze and posed as if he wasn’t there… ???????? #BGT

I don’t think that stage crewman was meant to be there. Mouthing the words “what the f***” when being revealed behind a glass box and then shuffling away to hide #bgt ???
