Simon Cowell absolutely terrified as he joins blindfolded crossbow act on BGT stage

"You are nuts," Cowell tells Ben Blaque after risky Britain's Got Talent performance


Simon Cowell gets more than he bargained for when crossbow-wielding Ben Blaque asks him to hop up on stage during this weekend’s Britain’s Got Talent.


Cowell had been merrily sat in his judging seat, dishing out his opinions, eating his satsuma segments. Then Blaque asks him to stand very much in the ‘danger zone’ of his arrow-firing act. Yep, poor Cowell has to ring a bell prompting Blaque to fire an arrow precisely in his direction. The extra twist of danger being Blaque has a bag over his head, thus meaning he has no idea if he’s actually about to impale the music mogul.

Hats off to Amanda Holden for some excellent dramatics from the judging panel and Dec from side-of-stage urging everyone to ‘back up’.

If it had gone wrong it would have been a much shorter version of ‘Who Shot Simon Cowell?’ wouldn’t it…?


See Britain’s Got Talent Saturday at 8:00pm on ITV
