People Are Claiming 'Britain's Got Talent' Is Fixed After Last Night's Episode

As with any TV talent show, Britain's Got Talent has become subject to fixing claims.

Every year it's always expected that shows like BGT and X Factor will come under criticism, it's all part of the package.

This week's dose of fixing allegations came after Ben Blaque took to the stage to perform a dangerous stunt with a crossbow.

Ben fired a crossbow at a target whilst wearing a blindfold, using only the noises Simon Cowell made as a guide for where to shoot.

The performance was highly dangerous and got the blood pumping, but there's a bit more to it than meets the eye.

Ben originally appeared in the 2012 leg of the US version of the show, making it to the final.

Judge Simon Cowell acted surprised at the act and claimed to have 'never seen anything like it', despite being an executive producer when Ben performed the same act on America's Got Talent four years ago.

It's not the first time that an act that has competed in another version of the show has tried their luck on the British equivalent - but it still got people speculating about a fix.

Earlier in the current series of Britain's Got Talent the show received criticism following 12-year-old Beau Dermott's performance.

The young girl appeared to be a bag of nerves prior to her singing for the judges. However old footage surfaced showing that Beau was very confident during various performances in the past.

Claims that the 12-year-old received stage training from a company called Stage Pro came forward, adding fuel to the fire and leading people to call her a 'cheat'.

Next week, a man pulls a coin from behind Simon Cowell's ear. Spoiler alert, he already had the coin in his hand.
