BRITAIN’S Got Talent returns for another episode on ITV tonight – and you can catch all the fun at 8pm.
Meanwhile, last week’s act – the witch – denied that her identity is really one of the show’s featured names.
Speculation is rife that Ant and Dec, former contestant Marc Spelmann or even Stephen Mulhern could be behind this terrifying act.
Responding to an article claiming to have unmasked them, the Witch wrote: “Stephen Mulhern, Ant n Dec, Marc Spelmann. Anymore? Nobody plays me. I AM me!”
A fan begged the act to keep his true identity hidden to keep the magic alive.
And it looks like we may never know who the witch really is because they answered, “As you wish.”

How does the BGT golden buzzer work?
The golden buzzer is on the judges’ panel which, when pressed, means you automatically get a place in the semi-finals.
This means they will skip the training camp stage of the competition, which will ultimately give them a head start.
Each judge and the Ant & Dec hosts have one opportunity per series to press him for any act they deem worthy.
The Golden Buzzer was introduced in Series Eight and has been a fixture ever since.

Episodes will be available on ITV Hub after each episode airs.
As always, the BGT champion will walk away with a huge cash prize of £250,000 and a place on the bill at the Royal Variety Performance.
The defending champion of 2020 is comedy singer Jon Courtenay.
Of course, Geordie comedy duo Ant and Dec will once again host the talent show.

Simon Cowell on BGT back this year
Speaking about missing a year of BGT for the first time in the show’s history due to the pandemic, judge Simon Cowell said: “While I didn’t want to not do the show last year, we just couldn’t at the time, it would have been literally impossible.
“We had to stop him at the last moment – it was a tough decision to make but it was the right one.
“I think as a result of that, when we all got back together, we realized how much we love doing the show.
“We missed each other, we get on and work well together.”
