BGT 2024 viewers ‘outraged’ as The Trickstars confirm it’s a generic act

BGT 2024 viewers weren’t too happy with the fact that the show’s wild card was dog number The Trickstars.

The ITV show returned to screens on Sunday June 2 for its 2024 finale. Performers including dancing duo Abigail & Afronitaaa and impressionist singer Mike Woodhams all took to the stage in a bid to win the £250,000 prize, as well as a place at the Royal Variety Performance.

Judges Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon and Bruno Tonioli were also on hand to judge the final performances.

However, early in the series, it was revealed that this year’s wildcard group was The Trickstars – and fans were divided on the decision.
