Britain’s Got Talent is back for a 12th series and looks set to be just as outrageous as ever.

In a sneak peak of the first episode, coming this Saturday 14th April, an escape artist chains and padlocks himself inside a water tank and has a mere two minutes to get out.

“If I start floating and I pass out, then you get me out,” says contestant Matt Johnson.

It’s nail-biting stuff, and has judges Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon and David Walliams barely able to cope with the nerves.
