Eagle-eyed Britain's Got Talent fan posts 'proof' that The Witch is a famous face in disguise

BRITAIN'S Got Talent fans have been mounting a witch hunt – literally – ever since a magical crone appeared on Saturday's show.

Now, internet sleuths reckon they've struck on exactly who is behind the character by studying celebrity faces.

One eagle-eyed BGT fan now reckons magician Pete Firman is the most likely candidate – and have posted the 'proof' online.

One viewer took a picture of the witch and another of Pete, star of the BBC show The Magicians, and merged one into the other.

They tweeted the 'evidence' to him writing simply: "Hmmm 🍎🧙‍♂️."

While the evidence was compelling, the man himself didn't appear to convinced.

He replied: "Christ! I’m terrified and I have no idea what this relates to."

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

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.

Many theories about the witch's identity have taken hold in recent days with BGT illusionist Marc Spelmann one of the names in the frame,

Others claimed the character could be Amanda's old friend Keith Lemon in one of his disguises.

The Celebrity Juice star, 49, is no stranger to dressing up and prosthetics from his days in Bo Selecta and playing her 'nan' Myrtle.

Other fans said it could also be one of Ant and Dec – both of whom also regularly don disguises on Saturday Night Takeaway.
