Britain's Got Talent star X revealed he was in fact last year's contestant Marc Spelmann during the 2019 final.

Marc Spelmann may not have won Britain's Got Talent this year, but he sure left the judges, Ant and Dec and the viewers around the UK speechless when he revealed he was the man behind the mysterious character 'X'.

During the final, magician X based his act around the idea of 'hope', before taking his mask off and revealing he was Marc from the talent show's previous series.

Marc was given Ant and Dec's golden buzzer in 2018, however, never made it to the final.

While the person behind 'X' has been speculated for months now, it seems Marc hinted to fans it was him the entire time in a resurfaced tweet.

The X at the end of the tweet has fans convinced this was a clue Marc was leaving for fans.
