Britain’s Got Talent’s Marc Spelmann’s true identity provided the biggest shocker on Britain’s Got Talent last night.
The magician was revealed to have been a former contestant on the show.
X was actually Marc Spelmann – a 2018 act who had been given a Golden buzzer – but failed to make it past the semi-finals stage.
When X’s true identity was revealed, Ant and Dec and judges Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden, David Walliams and Alesha Dixon were completely blown away.
Ant exclaimed: “Oh my God. Oh my God.”
While Simon added: “I never in a million years would have guessed that.”
“You are a master of your craft and a genious magician. Genius,” David added.
But despite some people being stunned by X’s big reveal – others weren’t convinced.
Some viewers took to social media to say they thought some producers must have known about X’s true identity from the get-go/
And that it would have been near-impossible to keep from Head Judge Simon Cowell.
Clearing things up today, X appeared on Lorraine and lifted the lid on who really knew his true identity.
He said: “No one knew my reveal identity – not even Ant and Dec or the judges.
“I had a friend called Colin on set talking for me.”
He continued: “My wife obviously knew and Isabella knew because I’d been rehearsing. She was quite used to me being in a mask. She thinks everyone in a white mask is her dad.”
Revealing why he kept his act anonymous, he said: “It was difficult but at the same time so much fun. We all want to be superheroes, X was a superhero to me.”
