Ant and Dec switch places for Britain's Got Talent act and viewers can't deal

Ant and Dec have made it a point of standing in name order throughout their career – and it’s something they have been known for.

However, Britain’s Got Talent act X decided to try and switch things up for the pair during the fifth and final semi-final, in order to align the hosts one again.

And how did they try and do that? By getting Dec to sit on the left side of the stage, while his pal sat on the right.

So for a brief few minutes, they basically became Dec and Ant.

That absolutely does not have a ring to it…

Illusionist X took things up a notch by proving the pair were completely aligned, by prodding Ant, 43, with something that looked like a vibrating curling tong.

And, despite being completely safe, Dec – also 43 – jumped up in pain and almost flew across the stage.

It’s like actual magic.

However, despite the trickery, there was only one thing fans at home cared about – getting the hosts swapped back to their normal order.

‘The weirdest part of this act is that @antanddec are the wrong way round @BGT #BGT,’ a viewer commented.

‘I’m sorry but it’s not Dec and ant! It’s ANT first!! #BGT,’ another said, while a follower fumed: ‘Noooo Dec and Ant. Swap them. #BGT

‘She mixed them up – Dec & Ant @antanddec #bgt,’ a Twitter user added, alongside an embarrassed emoji.

You heard them, guys…

Britain’s Got Talent final kicks off on Sunday, on ITV.
