Simon Cowell normally hates magicians but he was left speechless by one on this evening Britain’s Got Talent.

James Piper, 38, performed a series of tricks revolving around the BGT head judge’s son Eric.

James asked Simon to pick a dream Christmas present from a list compiled by his own son, Dylan, then a random card from a full deck and finally  the name of the person who means the most to him.

Somewhat predictably, Simon chose Eric, six, and wrote his name on his card, the five of hearts.

James then asked Simon to hold the card in his hand – and when he opened it again, the card was blank.

James’ son then appeared and produced a wallet – with Simon’s card in it!

Then, James held up a sheet of card with ‘five of hearts’ on it and, when he rotated it, the card read, ‘Simon & Eric’.

But what really made Simon’s jaw drop came after he revealed that the gift from Dylan’s list was a jet ski.

The magician turned the card over to reveal a giant photo of Simon and son Eric.

Simon then beckoned his son to join him and declared they were making show history by giving an act five yeses – one from all four judges and the extra one from Eric.

Viewers were getting a bit emosh by how cute Simon and Eric were together.
