Britain's Got Talent viewers were left taking to Twitter after some believed illusionist Kevin Quantum's act didn't follow social distancing rules, amid coronavirus measures being in place - while others were quick to point out that care had been taken on the show.

The show is following strict social distancing rules, including the judges' desks being kept apart and some acts not being on stage.

Hosts Ant McPartlin and Dec Donnelly also remind viewers each week that all acts are following the correct guidelines of the time of filming.

The latest Covid-19 restrictions shared by the government include people meeting up in groups of no more than six, while also keeping a distance - while there are some exemptions.

Perhaps this was why Dec wasn't asked to take part in the act when Ant and the judges were, forming a group of six.

BGT fans were divided over whether one act flouted social distancing rules

It is not clear when this episode was filmed, and whether it came before or after Prime Minister Boris Johnson's latest update.

But viewers tuning in on Saturday night believed the act may not be following the rules, as others disagreed.

Kevin touched finger tips with Ant during one moment, before he did the same with Amanda Holden.

Then, Amanda did the same with Alesha Dixon, while David Walliams joined finger tips with Ant and Ashley Banjo.

Kevin had asked the judges all to use hand sanitizer before joining them on stage, and for the rest of the act they all did keep a distance.

It's probably the case that Kevin and Ant also both used sanitizer before carrying out the performance.

Even when joining finger tips, they all stood apart from one another.

But some viewers believed they were flouting the rules in place.

Taking to Twitter, one fan said: "Where’s the social distancing here???"

Another wrote: "Hello @BorisJohnson, I’d like to report some people breaking social distancing rules. Just turn on @ITV right now!"

BGT fans believed they were not following the rules

A third tweeted: "Urm... social distancing."

Some fans weren't so sure any rules had been broken though, as one wrote: "Here come the social distancing complaints."

Another said: "Wait for twitter to b***h about social distancing when they've explained they were in working bubbles during recording."

The show had confirmed rules and guidelines had been followed correctly at the start of the show, so this will have been the case.

Britain's Got Talent continues Saturdays at 8pm on ITV.
