Britain’s Got Talent mind reader gifts Amanda Holden a new ‘car’

A mentalist gifted Amanda Holden a ‘car’ in an unseen audition on this year’s Britain’s Got Talent.


Tomas McCabe went before judges Simon Cowell, David Walliams, Alesha Dixon and Amanda Holden in a cut audition from Saturday’s main show.

In his audition, which aired on ITV2’s More Talent, Tomas revealed he currently makes a living selling beauty days to women.

But his secret talent is being a mentalist, and promised Amanda a present.

Before revealing her gift, Tomas invited Ant and Dec to join him on stage.

He asked the pair too choose a random gift through a set of cards, picking a Blue Car.


Tomas then revealed a present that had been on stage since the beginning, unveiling a red teddy bear.

Although the trick appeared to go wrong, Tomas invited Amanda to press the Bear’s hand, which prompted the toy to tell Amanda to look up where a giant poster of a blue car appeared.

“I loved it,” Amanda reacted. “You gave a competent performance, it all went right, it was all about me, win-win.”

Simon added: “You have something really special about you… can I keep the bear? I’m going to give it someone. ”

With four yeses, Tomas went through to the next round.

He joins other acts that impressed at the weekend which included singers 28-year-old Rob King from Manchester who performed a Eurovision hit Rise Like A Phoenix and 23-year-old Mark McMullan from Northern Ireland who belted Les Misérables’ iconic song Bring Him Home.

25-year-old variety performer Jay Rawlings set a brand new world record for his audition while dance group Iconic, made up of kids aged 7 to 11, performed to a medley of hits by artists ranging from Madonna to BGT’s own Ant and Dec.

Britain’s Got Talent 2019 is back next Saturday night on ITV with yet more auditions.


As always, straight after you can tune in to Britain’s Got More Talent on ITV2 with Stephen Mulhern.

The Britain’s Got Talent semi-finals will start later on in the year.
