Britain’s Got Talent was mired in another match-fixing feud on Saturday night after viewers accused judges of taking part in auditions.

Magicians Jay and Josh took to the stage and wowed the audience with a futuristic wedding-themed routine.

The magic trick was attended by judges Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon and Bruno Tonioli, who were all shocked, but some were skeptical and decided to “fix” it. “Nothing was planned,” the music mogul told the audience.’

Their audition began with a montage of how they met, moved to heartwarming moments from their engagement in 2019, and ended with their wedding last year.

One video the couple didn’t show was from their honeymoon, which they explained they hadn’t filmed yet.

Britain's Got Talent appears to be embroiled in yet another match-fixing feud as angry fans accuse judges including Simon Cowell of significant involvement in magic tricks.

Jay and Joss then asked the jury for their help using black balloons.

Each judge held a balloon and had to answer the date, month and year in which the honeymoon would take place.

Simon, 64, chose the 7th, Amanda, 53, August, and Alisha, 45, 2025.

Bruno, 68, was then asked to wave a balloon, and when Jos burst it, a note saying July 8, 2025 appeared.

Alisha was then asked to guess how much the couple would spend, and she answered quite accurately: £7,700.50.

Amanda chose hotel room number 127, and Simon was asked to choose a showbiz friend to join him, to which he answered Nicole Scherzinger.

Simon was also asked to choose a destination from a group of tags for couples to decide where to go on their honeymoon, from which he chose Blackpool.

Jay and Joss then told the audience that the judges’ selection was “completely random” and that they had no way of knowing anything about it before the auditions.

The duo began their audition with a montage of how they met, showing their engagement and wedding, but not their honeymoon.

However, the pair then proposed that they could move forward in time and determine exact dates, years, and locations in the blink of an eye.

When they clicked their hands, a video of their future honeymoon appeared.

The camera focused on the front of the newspaper, which had the date August 7, 2025 written on it. They then brought out a piece of paper with the amount of £7,700.50 written on it and finally told me about the room number which said 127 on the top of the coffee.

The couple then went outside, which showed they were in Blackpool, and a bus passed a transport with the words ‘Nicole Scherzinger’ emblazoned on the side.

While the judges were puzzled as to how the pair had pulled off the trick, Chief Judge Simon said: “I swear to you, I didn’t plan anything in advance. It was a complete surprise!” insisted.

Skeptical viewers flocked to X to share their opinions. “It’s a nice gesture, but it can’t happen without the intervention of the judges.”

“Look at the judge pretending he wasn’t told to say that #BGT.”

After receiving all the necessary information, they suggested that with the click of a finger, the exact date, year, and location could be instantly confirmed.

After the trick, the judges were puzzled as to how the pair had managed to pull it off, with Simon repeating that nothing had been planned before and that he was “surprised”.

“#BGT is very suspicious. I won’t tell you the date or the amount, but I will tell you where it was forced.”

“We should stop calling it Britain’s Got Talent and start calling it ‘Britain’s Got Mates dancing behind the scenes with editing software’… #BGT #BritainsGotTalent”

“Sorry, I can’t believe anything #BGT” “Simon – I swear this wasn’t pre-planned #BGT #BritainsGotTalent”

“I swear it wasn’t pre-planned” “Oh shit. The judges are in! Stop it now! #BGT #Britain’sGotTalent’

“We’re tired of fake magicians, we’re not stupid so we fixed it #BGT”

Viewers were unimpressed and rushed to X, sharing the opinion that the judge was involved in the act and knew about it beforehand

The two magicians received four votes to advance to the next round, but some other viewers agreed with the decision, calling their act “unbelievable,” “shocking” and “magical.” Some people said, “Absolutely amazing.”

This isn’t the first time this year’s show has been plagued by fixed rows. Earlier in the month, furious fans slammed professional singer Taryn Charles.

The 39-year-old special education teacher was dubbed the show’s “best ever” Golden Buzzer role after director Bruno Tonioli put her through to the semi-finals with a stunning performance.

The BGT star also revealed that she had met Simon when he was 15 years old working at a record label near her home, and claimed that Simon told her about his dreams.

However, some viewers were less than impressed and rushed to tell X that Taryn was already a professional singer and therefore the competition for amateur talent was “unfair”.

“Another professional singer??” Taryn Charles. What happened to #BGT? ” one person commented.

MailOnline has contacted Britain’s Got Talent for comment.
