Britain's Got Talent sees one of the most shocking auditions ever tonight.

The new series begins on ITV this evening at 7:15PM on ITV.

As always a range of acts go before judges David Walliams, Simon Cowell, Alesha Dixon and Amanda Holden.

Alongside the usual dance and music acts, one of the contestants this evening are Russian pair the Vardanyan Brothers.

The pair aged 28 and 32 perform a shocking sword balancing act that stuns the panel.

They're seen balancing on top of one another, held only by the point of two sharp swords in their mouths.

However their first attempt at the stunt goes wrong, forcing them to reset for another go.

You can watch a first preview of their audition in the video above.

Simon Cowell reacts to the audition: "I almost said you can't do this because this is the most dangerous act on any 'Got Talent' show.

"It is the most dangerous thing I've ever seen."

Tune in to see the full audition when Britain's Got Talent returns to TV this evening with its brand new series.

Britain's Got Talent 2019 starts tonight, April 6 at 7:15PM on ITV.

Other acts on this weekends opening round of auditions are Japanese dance act Fabulous Sisters and all singing and all dancing kids from Flakefleet Primary School who leave David Walliams in tears.

A number of music acts also show off their talents: There's four piece music group Y Pedwar Covi from Wales 18-year-old classical singer Faith Tucker, 42-year-old comedy singer-songwriter Siobhan Phillips and singing Dalek Ron from Nottinghamshire.

More contestants hoping for yeses from the judges - or perhaps that elusive golden buzzer are - comedian ventriloquist Jimmy Tamley, who gets both Amanda Holden and David Walliams involved with his act.
