Britain's Got Talent viewers reckon they've cracked the mystery of what or who is inside comedian Bikoon's 'magic' bag. Bikoon, a hopeful on BGT, had the judges and audience in stitches with his comedy act that involved a seemingly magical green bag. The bag appeared to come alive, hopping around the stage and even skipping rope at one point.

Simon Cowell and the rest of the panel, who returned to screens last month, were left in fits of laughter by the bizarre performance, while fans watching at home also found it hilarious, taking to social media to share their amusement.

However, some viewers were more intrigued by the contents of the bag - joking that they'd figured out who was inside. And a video clip shared on Twitter a few years ago seemed to show the same act with the same bag, unveiling who was inside it.

It appears that Bikoon has previously performed on Asia's Got Talent with a similar act. In that performance, the person inside the bag briefly revealed themselves.

The same individual can be seen in a social media clip with Bikoon, discussing the act and demonstrating how they get in and out of the bag. While it's not confirmed if it's the same person inside the bag this time, fans believe it's a strong possibility.

Viewers had a variety of guesses, with one fan humorously suggesting that host Dec Donnelly was inside the bag, given his absence during most of the performance.

Sadly, we didn't get to see who was in the bag, and Bikoon exited the stage. However, if he progresses to the live shows, his identity may be revealed.

Fans will soon discover who has made it to the live semi-finals next week. It was recently revealed that ITV bosses are looking at giving the show a huge cash boost - rumoured to be worth around £100 million – and changing the format of the series so it runs for longer next year. In recent years, the show has run for around six to seven weeks from mid-April to the beginning of June, but the new plan is for BGT to start in February and be on air for three months.

This would fill the gap left by the end of Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway, and the cash injection would be used to make the show bigger and possibly even better than BBC series Strictly Come Dancing.
