Britain's Got Talent fans were left demanding a 'missing' star return as the series' second episode aired on Sunday night (April 21). Millions tuned in to episode one which aired on Saturday night (April 20), officially kicking off the 2024 series.

According to ITV, the audience peaked with a massive 5.6 million viewers (5m Ave.) with a 39% share, making it the network's biggest overnight audience of the year so far since The FA Cup quarter-final match last month.

The first show of the double-bill weekend also saw unusual singers and astounding dogs take to the stage, to impress judges Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon and Bruno Tonioli while a singer and a South Korean martial arts troupe quick to be awarded the coveted golden buzzer.

The show then returned on Sunday night (April 21) for a double show weekend with Arbon, a danger act who balances using his hands and executes stunts involving fire and heights while Duncan Fletcher demonstrated a variety of stunts to the judges and Danny ZZZZ performed a trick that involves him attempting to escape from a box on fire.

And there were emotional scenes when an eight-year-old boy with a brain tumour along with his choir who also secured the coveted golden buzzer from a crying Alesha Dixon.

Ravi’s Dream Team, a choir of people ranging from ages five to 78, fronted by eight-year-old Ravi, were put straight through to the live shows when judge Alesha hit the special buzzer following the group's performance of A Million Dreams from the musical film The Greatest Showman.

But the second episode appeared to be missing something following part one of the double weekend opener. Among those auditioning on the opening episode was an anonymous 'comedian' called Bobby Goldfin.

Clad in a suit and an orange goldfish mask, the act received red buzzers from all four judges after failing to get his first joke out. However, he returned to the stage later on in the show. Playing on the myth that goldfish have an extremely short-term memory, he joked that he 'couldn't remember' being voted off.

The act was quick to get viewers talking as he appeared in the closing credits as he returned to the theatre for another shot at auditioning, only to find the judges and the audience gone. So with the joke running throughout episode one, BGT viewers were wondering where he was during the second episode and took to social media to comment.

@DaveNWaves asked: "Where was Bobby Goldfin... ? #BGT." @jjfizz quipped: "Knock knock #BritainsGotTalent #BGT where is Bobby goldfish?" @Andythegwarve said: "Bring back the fish, all is forgiven #bgt." @luvrofmen added: "Bobby golfdin would’ve made the night better #BGT."
