Has Britain’s Got Talent’s wild card already been chosen? Simon Cowell hints at favourite

In Wednesday night’s live semi-final the lead judge let fans know which act he’d be backing when it comes to the wild card and it wasn’t Jack Higgins.

14-year-old Jack lost out on a place in the final despite his stunning BGT performance.

Despite many wanting to see Jack, Simon told fans he was ”rooting for” Vadik and the Bear and again in Thursday night’s show the mogul hinted that he knows which act he wants to go through.

After their latest performance, Cowell hailed Vadik and the Bear “incredible”, before saying that he’d want to see them again… at his son’s party.

“You are my favourite act,” said Cowell. “That was incredible… In eight months time Eric is going to have his eighth birthday party and you are booked.”

While Alesha Dixon wasn’t so keen as the singer and presenter described the act as a “nightmare”.

“One, that was a nightmare, this is a real nightmare… I had a run-in with a polar bear once, that’s what the problem is,” Alesha said.

Expect Vadik & The Bear will be next seen at Simon’s house when little Eric turns three.
