Britain's Got Talent 2016 begins this weekend and is set to feature the show's most dangerous act EVER.

A bumper set of auditions will kick start the new series on Saturday night and the opening episode is full of variety.

While we can't say too much just yet - although you can expect a full preview online tonight at midnight - one act is set to make jaws drop.

BGT boss Simon Cowell says it's the most dangerous trick the stage has ever seen.

"I think it could be one of the best we've ever made, it's ten years," Simon said of the series. "I think, no, I know you're going to see the most dangerous act you've ever seen on Britain's Got Talent... and it doesn't involve a dog."

However the series has already sparked controversy before it's begun with acts once again pouring in from across the world.

Not only have some auditionees appeared on Got Talent shows in other countries, they've even won them too.

But the judges defended allowing such contestants to compete with Amanda Holden saying: "The competition is open to everybody. I just think people have been in the business for 25 years and they haven’t made, you could say they’re in the business.

"I think there’s opportunities for absolutely everyone so anyone who’s talented (or not) can be on Britain’s Got Talent."

David Walliams added: "The thing is it’s sort of become The World’s Got Talent and that puts us in a very special place.

"And I think it’s quite tough because if you’ve got one person from Spain and one person from England or you aren’t British but you grew up here, or you moved from there, it gets tough."

Britain's Got Talent 2016 begins this Saturday night on ITV from 7PM.
