A MAGICAL thing happened on Britain’s Got Talent: Simon Cowell was left speechless.
The act responsible was DNA – a magic double act who wowed the audience and judges with their ‘mind reading’ skills on the first episode of the latest series.
But what do we know about them and their act?
Who are Britain’s Got Talent act DNA?
Darren, 29, and Andrew, 43, are a magic act called DNA and are well known in the industry.
They have worked at a number of corporate events and also as consultants for big name films.
The duo, who hail from Essex, have won accolades “Gold Star Member of the Inner Magic Circle” and “The Magic Circle Close Up Magician of the Year” for their work.
According to their website, they have previously entertained Fearne Cotton, Boris Becker, Bradley Walsh, Lenny Henry and Davina McCall.
What did DNA do on Britain’s Got Talent to leave Simon Cowell speechless?
Simon was called on stage and asked three questions – to choose the number of a front door on an imaginary house, the colour of the house’s lounge walls and the name of a celebrity sitting inside it.
The media mogul looked sceptical as he wrote down his answers that he had chosen at random in his mind.
When he read out his answers, 717, turquoise and Sir Roger Moore his jaw dropped when he turned to see the act had written the exact same thing has him.
Incredibly, throughout the sketch both Andrew and Darren had managed to change their clothes without a single person realising.
What other magicians have appeared on Britain’s Got Talent?
There have been a number of magicians who have trod on the BGT stage – though not a lot have been successful.
But last year Richard Jones bucked the trend, beating the odds to bag the title, a slot on the Royal Variety Show and £500,000.
He now stars in his own TV show which sees him entertaining his fellow troops and forces’ sweetheart singer Katherine Jenkins
