Britain's Got Talent fans rumble Damien O'Brien's magic trick as finale performance goes wrong

BRITAIN'S Got Talent fans were left unimpressed by Damien O'Brien's magic trick in the finale last night.

The magician, 35, took to the stage to perform his last ever act on thepopular ITV talent show and some viewers sussed out exactly how he did it.

For one of his most important performances of his life, Damien asked judge Amanda Holden, 49, to find his profile on social media – without actually specifying which platform to find him on.

The beauty quickly got her phone out of her pocket and checked her Instagram.

Damien explained that the other half of the card she had picked was on his account somewhere and viewers of the show weren't having any of it.

Many of them flocked to Twitter to share how they think that the personal trainer managed to pull off his magic trick.



One wrote: "Easy…he’s got 52 Instagram accounts…each with a picture of a different card! #BGT#BritainsGotTalent"

Another said: "Yeah, maybe he has loads of accounts though? Anyone could do that!"

And others were confused as to how Amanda knew which platform to even go on.

A third added: "When he said find him on social media – how did she know he meant Instagram?"

But while some fans voiced their disappointment about his performance, others praised him for his creativity and were upset he didn't make the top three.

Another fan tweeted: "Oh gutted Damien isn't in the top 3 #BGT"

A second echoed: "#BGT is b******s & a fix he was s***e an unoriginal – Damien has been absolutely robbed blind."

Jon Courtenay, Steve Royle and Sign Along With Us were the final three acts battling it out for a chance to win the £250,000 prize fund and an opportunity to perform at the Royal Variety show.

But it was the 46-year-old musical comedian from Manchester who came up on top.

Jon won over viewers with his witty and personal self-penned songs, which he performed on a piano.

He'd previously moved the judges to tears with a touching performance about his late father.

And last night he had judge Alesha Dixon in tears about another hilarious song highlighting the difficulties he faced over the past year.

The dad-of-two was over the moon to be crowned winner of Britain's Got Talent 2020.

He told hosts Ant and Dec: "A couple of mornings I've woken up – and actually this morning, for the first time – this sounds really dramatic – but I woke up and had an idea for a song for the Royal Variety Performance. I wrote it down and I tried not to think about it as a sign.

"Just amazing, I can't believe it. Listen, thank you. You don't know how much this means.

"You have changed my life, my family's life. My mum, I can't imagine how you're coping right now. I hope you're still alive!"
