Britain's Got Talent shock as contestant 'collapses on stage' during audition

Britains Got Talent 2012 judges

A singer collapsed on stage during auditions for Britain's Got Talent 2017, it's been reported.

The 20-year-old called Luke was performing My Way earlier this year when "suddenly he just fell", onlookers have revealed.

Luke was said to be performing alongside his mum who had both received devastating news that Luke's granddad had tragically passed away.

"His grandad died that day and combined with the stress of auditions, it really got to him," an audience member told The Sun newspaper. “It was incredibly scary. Luke was singing with his mum and suddenly he just fell."

They added: ”All of the judges jumped to their feet, and Simon rushed on stage. Luke’s mum was cradling him in her arms.

“They were the last act of the night and Simon thanked the audience for being compassionate.”

Hosts Ant and Dec also rushed on to lend a hand as the show's medical team gave the youngster assistance.

He was eventually given the all clear by paramedics after fainting and advised to rest.

Here's hoping Luke gets better very soon!

Meanwhile, another rather different dramatic incident on stage at this year's BGT auditions saw one act storm off after receiving negative feedback.

They caused chaos when they walked off stage half way through the comments from the judges after a flop audition.

The choir left Simon Cowell "open mouthed" when they decided to storm off after the music mogul declared: "That was one of the worst things I’ve ever seen in my life..."

According to the Daily Mirror newspaper, the singers blamed the poor performance on their song being changed by producers.

They said: “We wanted to show our fun-loving, creative spirit but it was changed by producers.”

Alesha Dixon had told the group: “I understand what you stand for and I really do appreciate that, however, if you want to step on stage and be on TV, it’s brutal.

"The audience can’t lie, you didn’t set us on fire. It wasn’t good enough.”

Britain's Got Talent will air on ITV later this month.
