Britain’s Got Talent live show ‘sees most dangerous act EVER’

Watch Jonathan Goodwin on Britain's Got Talent tonight (Friday May 31)

Tonight’s Britain’s Got Talent live show saw the series’ ‘most dangerous act ever’ as Jonathan Goodwin performed.


Stuntman and magician Jonathan shocked the judges as he dodged crossbow bolts live on the stage.

In an amazing stunt, he stood blindfolded in front of four loaded crossbow guns.

Attached to the triggers were various sized bottles of water that would cause the crossbows to fire when empty.

Jonathan’s assistant opened the bottles allowing the water to pour out, with the crossbows firing once the they had fully emptied.

Despite being blindfolded, Jonathan successfully dodged the first three crossbows as they fired.


He then stopped the fourth and final crossbow by holding up a picture of David Walliams in front of his face.

The judges were full of praise for the performance ahead of the public vote.
