Dec Has 'Never Been So Nervous' After Taking Part In Knife-Throwing 'Britain's Got Talent' Act
Things got a little hairy for Dec after he volunteered himself to help out with a knife-throwing act on Britain's Got Talent - revealing that he's 'never been so nervous' in his entire life.
The act in question was performed by 31-year-old Malaysian illusionist Andrew Lee, who said: "It's always been my dream to be on Britain's Got Talent and I hope to perform for the royal family."
Andrew then cryptically told judges that he'd be doing a simple card trick with 'a sense of danger', making Ant and Dec's eyes light up with glee.
But their excitement soon faded when Andrew then asked the double act to join him on stage to help with the performance.
Asking Dec to pick a card, Lee tore the corner off of it and gave it to Dec to keep.
Dec was then given a protective board, which was tied around his neck to hang over his torso - a worrying sign if ever there was one.
"Dec, take a deep breath and relax," he told the presenter, before blindfolding him.
Ant was then told to throw the remaining pack of cards into the air, as high as he could, which was when Andrew pulled out a knife, explaining that he'd find the card by throwing it.
Naturally, the audience looked on in absolute fear, knowing that Dec definitely pulled the short straw on this one.

Removing the blindfold, Andrew let Dec in on what was about to happen... at which point the TV star began to look a little bit pale - tentatively saying: "Okay."
Andrew then asked if he wanted the blindfold off or on, to which he replied: "Off."
"Good choice," Andrew said, before placing the blindfold on himself.
Completing trick, Ant threw the cards up into the air while Andrew flung his knife towards Dec - and, thankfully, the protective board, pinning the card in question.
Dec clutched his trousers, while Ant hugged him, shouting: "We just need toilet roll. That's all we need. Toilet roll!"
The judges were impressed, including Simon, who smiled: "That was one of the most amazing things I've seen on this show. Near death. Magic - everything I love."
Simon joked: "Could we involve David in any way in this?"
Much to David's horror, Andrew suggested: "Maybe with swords?"
Later in the show, Dec admitted: "I've never been so nervous in my entire life."
Blimey, we're not bloody surprised. Rather you than us, mate.
