There have been plenty of heart-in-mouth moments on ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ over the years, but thankfully nothing has ever gone horribly wrong during any of the more daring stunts.
Unfortunately, the same can’t be said when a magician on Poland’s version of the show was trying out one of his latest tricks.
The semi-finalist from this year’s series was making an appearance on Poland’s version of ‘Good Morning Britain’ when he enlisted presenter Marzena Rogalska to be his assistant.
But things quickly took a horrifying turn when poor Marzena had to slam her hand down on a paper bag, only for her to impale it on a huge nail.
Ouch and ouch.
They say you should never work with children and animals on TV, but we’d now like to add magicians to that list, please.
Thankfully, after being taken to hospital, Rogalska’s injuries were deemed to be superficial and she was sent home after receiving a tetanus shot
She also later took to Facebook to reassure fans that she was okay in a specially recorded video, which sees her with a heavily bandaged hand as the magician kisses it better.
We doubt Susanna Reid would have been quite so forgiving, to be honest.
Watch the moment it all goes horribly wrong in the not-for-the-faint-hearted clip below...
