Peter Andre surprised viewers with a cameo during the Britain's Got Talent final.

The Mysterious Girl singer appeared during magician Trixy's act, which involved judge Simon Cowell picking a number between 1 and 52. Simon chose 34, and Trixy revealed a list on his phone that paired each number with a musician - 34 was Peter Andre.

Simon was then asked to select a card from a shuffled deck, choosing the four of diamonds. On stage, a large crowd each held a card while covering their faces, reports the Mirror.

Another swooned: "Can he do that whenever?" followed by some heart-shaped emojis. A third asked: "Wonder what would have happened if Simon packed another name on the list?"
