Magus Utopia revealed they performed the same illusion act on The Next Great Magician two years ago.

The illusionists from the Netherlands wowed fans, who couldn't work out how they had pulled it off.

Bu fans now think they have worked out the trick and how Marcel managed to disappear on stage and pull off the act.


One viewer tweeted: "It was really good, but could spot the props a mile off ......... I've gone right off magic."

Another said: "That magician just had trapdoors in every set piece, not much magic there."

Trapdoors or not some fans were still impressed at how well put together it was. One person said: "I have been watching BGT since it started and I think #Magnusutopia was the first illusion act that I've enjoyed."

Another person commented saying: "Nah that illusionact on BGT I've rewinded, paused, fast forward and I am gobsmacked HOW DO THEY DO IT."

The act began with Marcel in bed, before he transformed into a female illusionist dressed in a scary costume.


Suddenly a group of performers dressed in dark outfits appeared on the stage, with Simon comparing them to "monsters."

Magus Utopia have also performed this routine at championships, before deciding to try the UK audience once more.
