Ant McPartlin teases most dangerous Britain’s Got Talent act ever

Ant and Dec have teased the most ‘dangerous’ act in Britain’s Got Talent history tonight – and we’re a little worried.

Taking to Twitter, Ant McPartlin shared a snap of escape artist Jonathan Goodwin on stage, admitting he was nervous about what could possibly happen on stage.

Alongside the snap, the 43-year-old told his 6.74millfion followers: ‘OMG!!!! This act on tonight’s show is the most dangerous we’ve EVER had!

‘I’m genuinely nervous about this. A #BGT2019 #BGTSemiFinal.’

Seeing as Jonathan set himself on fire while wearing a straight-jacket in his first audition, we can kind of see why…

The ITV hopeful revealed that his next performance will be completely different to anything we’ve seen from him before – and is more dangerous than the last round.

And, on top of all that, he’s getting Simon Cowell involved.


‘Honestly it couldn’t be more different to what I did in the last round, other than the fact it’s more dangerous,’ he told The Sun. ‘It’s not an escape, I am basically playing chicken on stage, is what I’m doing. It’s also going to involve Simon Cowell.

‘I’ve been told that Simon is a big danger fan, so I wanted to get him involved and basically tonight, Simon Cowell is going to save my life.

‘It’s live and the judges and all the pressure of that, but what I’m doing is easily the most dangerous thing I have ever attempted on stage and I’ve never done it before, so all of that together is pretty intense.’

We’ll be watching this from behind the sofa cushion…

Let’s hope Simon doesn’t react in the same way he did last night when Jimmy Tamley asked him to get involved in his ventriloquism stint.

In fact, Si stormed straight off stage after the comedian tried to get him to dance alongside David Walliams.

Despite it being seriously awkward to watch, the music mogul actually found the whole thing ‘hilarious’.

‘It turns out the reason Simon left the stage was due to an old skiing injury,’ an insider told Metro.co.uk.

‘Jimmy grabbed hold of Simon’s knee but, understandably, won’t have realised about Simon’s old injury when he wanted him to do the can-can. So Simon had to take the lead to stop any embarrassment! Backstage, everyone has been giggling – and Simon thinks it was a great TV moment!’

The source continued: ‘Simon is absolutely fine. He’s been laughing about it during the ad break.

‘There’s been lots of laughter in the dressing room, with a few production members jokingly acting with their tails between their legs! But Simon saw the funny side.’

Britain’s Got Talent continues at 7:30pm, on ITV.
