I am against all forms of exposure you only have to look at my posts when Brian bushwood exposed the ID on you tube

Fact is BGT is the highest rated show in
The U.K. And something to consider if you take part in this show you stand a good chance of your effect getting exposed on YouTube or in the papers

Anyone using the Linx Item now will have to re consider his or her act

What price for 5 mins of fame is it worth it !

Who ever Mr Anonymous is he must be pretty pi$$ed to go to expose like that - all the effects. I wonder how much the papers paid him for the story and exposure. Shame

Surely the Magic fraternity should be able to name and shame the source that gave it all away to a newspaper? Get searching everyone!

Doesn't really matter how stuff works.

What is more important is if it is done well.

Got to say that young Issy did her act brilliantly & was a charm to watch.

Her Grandfather Russ Stevens must be very proud of her.

Best presentation of magic I have seen for ages.

She did excellent performance it's a shame that "someone " had to go and expose the whole act totally unnecessary

To be honest if I'd spent 6 grand on a Lynx Blackboard I wouldn't be too pleased to let everyone know that an 8 year old could do it

How do you suggest we 'search'. A magician told a reporter how to do the tricks. The reporter isn't going to reveal his source. So, what other ideas do you have?

Probably a £100 if that. It’s abhorrent that some lowlife would expose any secrets let alone these, through nothing more than jealousy.

But that’s the problem with magic in this age, the secrets are all there for anyone to see and hardly protected online. Many wealthy dealers having no selection process at all only interested in the sale.

Now anyone is privy to these creations and if they fancy it can expose!

Blimey, chill out everyone. Yes, it's annoying, but let's not forget: Jamie Raven's Bill In Lemon, also on BGT, was exposed by the same newspaper. I'll bet people are still performing it. Readers have short memories. Over the years, The Masked Magician has exposed pretty much every main trick and plenty of obscure ones. It's not helpful to our art, but nor is it fatal.

On the one hand you have all this unnecessary exposure of effects which is not at all relevant to the main idea of the article. Then on the other hand you have a magician/coach who works for the show who is helping his own grandchild doing magic on the very same "talent contest" show that he is working for. There is plenty of shame to go around.

No but I would like to know and to name and shame

It would be great to be able to expose all the things he or she does to all and sundry in a daily newspaper if you can call the Mirror that
So Shame on them for printing the story

I really hope she doesn't loose heart about this it was a polished performance and she has a lovely personality
I am sure Russ is very proud of her

What a load of garbage. Very sad.

The problem I see is that over the years AGT and BGT producers now expect magic on steroids - leading to the tech being used rampantly now - by a kid in this case.

Sure people will forget this and not everyone will see the exposure - but it still hurts the art.

I like the tech too but Mat Franco won in the USA by using skill and good routining.

Putting a cute highly scripted kid (who's insider relative works on the show) on loaded with tech overlay - well, I guess that's show biz.

It still stings.

I agree 100% with this post it's totally appalling and part of the whole problem with social media . The public don't even want to know the secrets they want to be entertained and so some a.s.o.e goes and does this purely out of spite Tarik 😔

It really is a shame and your right Tarik. This I feel could have been a previous contestant who maybe didn't get through and a bit envious and jealous maybe. However, if it is true that the rules state that your material has to be original and not used before etc, then to find Issy used material already performed - then that I don't think is fair and cant have one rule for one and one for another. So if this is the case of what happened, I can in a way see why Mr Anonymous is/was pi$$ed if he went to the effort of trying to make his act original with unseen material to then see how the rules got bent for someone else.
