Britain's Got Talent fans complain their kids can't sleep after watching witch dubbed the show's 'scariest act ever'

BRITAIN'S Got Talent fans have complained their children were unable to sleep after watching the show's terrifying witch last night.

The creepy crone, who stalked the panel handing out apples – one of which exploded in a shower of cockroaches – has been dubbed the series' scariest act ever.

One viewer complained about the ITV show tweeting: "My kids just came back downstairs crying because they can’t sleep because of the witch."

They added, alongside a shot of the character cackling: "Britain's Got Talent done me dirty here!"

Another posted: "Glad that was shown after the watershed. Kids be pooping themselves. My 10 year old was behind a pillow."

A third shuddered: "I have still got that in my head. Need to watch a other show before I go to bed."

The act was so chilling it even scared the grown-ups on the show, with Alesha Dixon fleeing the judges' desk insisting: "Disgusting. Oh I can't."

Ant and Dec, in relative safety in the wings, also looked freaked out with Declan Donnelly telling viewers: "I don't like it."

Simon Cowell called the act "horrific" – but despite the protests they voted it through to the next round with a unanimous four yeses.

The act began with the witch appearing on stage, stomping down the steps and handing out apples to each of the judges in turn.

When it came to Amanda the witch held her wrist and one hand and a gnarled stick in the other.

They cackled: "Do you know why they say beauty's only skin deep? Because we're all rotten to the core."

A third hand then shot out of the witch's black cloak and grabbed the apple in Amanda's palm.

It then exploded into a collection of cockroaches and mealworms, which wriggled and crawled around the judges' desk.

The character's true identity was not revealed, with the act captured only: "The Witch, age unknown."

However, many viewers believe it was the work of the show's master illusionist Marc Spelmann in a heavy disguise.

He has made two appearances on the show – once as himself and another as the mysterious masked character X back in 2019.
