David Walliams and Simon Cowell risk their lives in Britain’s Got Talent knife act

David Walliams and Simon Cowell put their lives on the line in a risky Britain’s Got Talent audition.


Tonight saw the latest round of Britain’s Got Talent auditions on ITV.

One of the contestants performing for the judges was knife throwing act Claire-Marie and Jason.

Aged 45 and 47 from Kent, the boyfriend and girlfriend pair started their act with Jason throwing knifes at Claire-Marie while blindfolded.

The couple then invited David and Simon up on stage to be a part of their act.

David and Simon stood back to back before Jason threw knives at the pair.

Returning to their seats in one piece after the performance, Simon joked: “Unfortunately you missed David!” he added: “I like you two a lot, good for you.”

Amanda Holden added: “Brilliant fun, well done it was ace.”

Alesha Dixon agreed: “I absolutely loved it. You [Claire-Marie] are a show-woman, well done guys.”

With four yeses, Claire-Marie and Jason sailed through to the next round where they stand the chance of making the live shows later this year.

Other acts on this weekend’s auditions included VA Kidz who invited the judges on a trip to Wonderland, pianist (and stripper) Emmanuel Vass, magician Hakan Berg and tuba player Krysztof Werkowicz.

We also met the Lozkha Brothers, who gave spooning a whole new meaning and dance group Immortals and singer Sirine Jahangir who played the piano to ‘Salvation’ by Gabrielle Aplin.


Contestants are fighting it out for a cash prize £250,000 plus the opportunity to appear at the Royal Variety Performance later this year.

Britain’s Got Talent 2020 airs Saturday nights at 8PM on ITV with spin-off show Britain’s Got Talent: Unseen available on ITV Hub straight after.
