Britain's Got Talent viewers have been left divided over The Witches' semi-final performance.

The mysterious act, which appears to be made up of three people, took to the stage on Monday evening in a bid to get through to the final.

While The Witches did not claim a place in the Britain's Got Talent final, they made a lasting impression on the judges and viewers at home.

The act saw one 'witch' approach the judges' panel with a mysterious box where David Walliams, Alesha Dixon, Amanda Holden and Simon Cowell all had to pick out their 'worst fear'.

After Amanda pulled out the paper which read 'rodents', a rat was revealed to be hiding in the box on the table.

While some people thought the act was creepy and terrifying to watch, others weren't blown away.

Commenting on Twitter following the performance, one person posted: "Now this is what I'm talking about, scary funny and brilliant....you know who I'm voting for."

Others found the prosthetics and generally eeriness of the act very effective, commenting: "Well I’m not sleeping after seeing him", and: "I can't handle #thewitches it's too scary".

Others, however, were quick to ask what 'talent' the act were showing, labelling it "boring".

One person commented: "Not exactly blown away tonight!" while another wrote: "The Witches act was so boring. I was more concerned for the rats safety than anything else! Yawn."
