BGT viewers claim ‘ring gives trick away’ during Magical Bones’ act

Magician and dancer Magical Bones stunned Britain's Got Talent viewers during his emotive performance on Saturday night's final.

During his act, the 38-year-old gave a performance that incorporated the story of Henry Box Brown, a 19th century US slave who escaped by stowing himself inside a wooden crate, before becoming a magician in later life.

But, some were less impressed – with other viewers claiming they noticed the secret to his impressive trick.

Taking to Twitter, one viewer shared a side-by-side image taken during the performance which showed Magical's hands, bound together with a pair handcuffs with him wearing a ring on both middle fingers.

After his trick was complete, he seemed to have transported to another box on the other side of the studio.

But, eagle-eyed viewers noticed that his right hand was missing a ring and when he stepped out – the ring had reappeared looking slightly different, and was also on the wrong finger, seeing them claim that he had used a stunt double.

They penned: "If you're gonna go on national tv and do a magic trick make sure the other guy wears the same ring on the same finger…"

A second added: "#BGT Magical Bones should have made sure his ring was on the correct finger before getting in the box!! Brewing and check hands!"

Before a third tweeted: "Is it just me or did Magical Bones ring on his left hand give his trick away? #BGT."

"Magical Bones??? Did you not see how he gave his 'trick' away by not having the person already in the box wear the same ring as him but not only that, not on the correct finger!" said a fourth.

During his first audition, Magical whose real name is Richard Essien wowed the judges and audiences with an impressive back lip while performing a magic trick.

He also showcased his escaping skills and shared the story of Henry Box Brown.

Following his performance, Simon Cowell said: "The fact that maybe this show will give you the break you've been waiting for is a really fantastic feeling."
