Britain's Got Talent bosses are under pressure to bring the Wildcard twist back for this year, after viewers were left angry by the resuilt of Tuesday night's semi final.

With just days to go now until the finale of the ITV show, things are coming down to the crunch, with 40 acts competing across five consecutive nights this week, in a bid to earn a place in the decider. The heats kicked off on Monday, May 27, with opera singer Innocent Maskuu and martial art acrobats Ssaulabi Performance Troupe making it through on night one, before eight more hopefuls stepped into the spotlight on Tuesday evening.

After the elimination of two Golden Buzzer acts the night before, with both Taryn Charles and Duo Stardust being sent home, the stakes were high in semi final two and, unfortunately for them, inspirational singing group Ravi's Dream became the third Golden Buzzer act two get the chop.

The result went right down to the wire as, after magician Jack Rhodes topped the public vote, the fate of both Ravi's Dream and skipping collective Harobow laid in the hands of the judges. And, with them divided on who to send through, the outcome went to the public vote, resulting in Ravi's Dream, who performed Take That's Greatest Day on the night, being eliminated in a shock result.

And it was a result many Britain's Got Talent viewers weren't happy with. Really annoyed at what happened, one viewer took To X to fume: "Ravi's Dream TEAM SHOULD get the wildcard for the final, otherwise we will RIOT ON SOCIALS!!" with a second reacting: "If Ravi's Dream Team are not the wildcard something Is off with this show."

Among the many other posts on the matter was a third which read: "GIVE RAVI’S DREAM TEAM THE WILDCARD!!!"
