Alesha Dixon couldn’t bear to look as she was asked to fire staples into the face of a magician on Britain’s Got More Talent.
The judge was a reluctant volunteer during magician Ryan Tricks’ audition for the show, and joined the performance artist on stage to play Russian roulette with a staple gun.
Ryan asked Alesha: “Have you heard of Russian roulette? It wouldn’t be clever to use real guns so I use staple guns.”
After loading a gun with staples and after trying to influence Alesha about what to choose ‘using his mind’ he gets the nervous singer to pull the trigger with the gun pressed up to his hand, cheek and neck.
Meanwhile, presenters Ant and Dec faced the ‘electric chair’ in Ant and Dec’s: Fairground Fantasy, taking it in turns to see who could endure the electric shocks for the longest.
And Britain’s Got More Talent host Stephen Mulhern interviews Simon Cowell in the judges’ room.
Stephen asked the music mogul when he had last used public transport. When Simon claimed: “Probably yesterday!”, fellow judge David Walliams piped up, “You liar! You’ve got a Rolls Royce!”
Simon retorted: “But other people can get in it. That makes it public transport!”
