'Britain's Got Talent' Daredevils BoldDog FMX Told To Pre-Record Act By Simon Cowell... In Case One Of Them Dies

Britain’s Got Talent’ daredevil act ‘BoldDog FMX’ will be pre-recording their performance for the show’s semi-finals, because Simon Cowell is reportedly scared one of the team might suffer a fatal injury on live TV.

The stuntmen wowed the judges earlier in the series with their aero-gymnastics, which they performed atop motorbikes, managing to get a ‘yes’ from all of the judges.

At the time Simon told them he admired them for putting their lives on the line - literally - for the show, but now wants them to pre-record their stunt so as to avoid any kind of incident.

A show insider told The Sun: “Simon Cowell was genuinely scared by the stunts the guys performed on the show and there is a fear that something could potentially go wrong.

“If that happens bosses won’t want millions of people watching it live.”

The current series of ‘BGT’ has proved controversial after a number of acts revealed they already had a history of performing, including 79-year-old salsa dancer Paddy, who was put through to the semi-finals when Amanda Holden hit her golden buzzer, despite the fact she’s already won a similar TV talent show in Spain.

Meanwhile, David Walliams also faced a backlash when he hit his golden buzzer for Christian Spridon, whose performance of ‘Sex Bomb’ was panned by viewers.
