BRITAIN’S Got Talent viewers’ hearts are sure to stop when an underwater act puts his life in the judges’ hands on tonight’s show.
Escape artist Christian Wedoy is hoping to make a real splash on the BGT stage with his terrifying act, which sees him locked in tank filled with water.
Submerged in water and holding his breath, Christian tries to unlocked four different padlocks; his hands, waist and neck with the help of David Walliams.
After David placed the keys into the case, Christian is seen struggling to open the locks and to hold his breath.
The judges at this point are beyond worried as his friend explains to the audience “if he goes over four minutes, we’re in a very bad place”.
As the clock goes over four minutes, Christian is beginning to shake as he tries to get the last lock around his neck loose.
It’s at this point both the audience and judges are fearing for the escape artist’s safety.
The camera then pans to hosts Declan Donnelly and Ant McPartlin lifting the paramedics bag closer to the stage as they explain it’s “danger time now”.
Ant tells viewers at home, “he’s shaking” while Dec adds, “it’s hard to watch”.
Things are taking a turn as an audience member worries “he can’t take it off” and judge Simon Cowell begins to call towards the side of the stage to grab the medic’s attention.
However, the clip cuts off and viewers are left in suspense for how the heart-stopping segment ends.
Elsewhere, the live BGT shows are currently postponed due to the global coronavirus pandemic while the pre-recorded auditions began airing on ITV on April 11.
ITV confirmed that all of the scenes were filmed and created earlier this year – before the ongoing health crisis began.
The new series of Britain’s Got Talent continues tonight at 8pm on ITV.
