Terrifying Britain's Got Talent Stunt Goes Wrong But Act Keeps Quiet Until It's Over

Britain's Got Talent viewers witnessed a very close shave as magician Kevin Quantum's fire stunt went wrong during last night's show. Watch below:

The fearless contestant attempted to walk through a huge harmonic pendulum with fiery cannonballs swinging over his head, meaning he couldn't see where the weights were flying.

Audience members were visibly scared for him as they watched the death defying stunt, with the judges stunned by the scientist's incredible performance.

Explaining the trick, Kevin said: "These cannonballs will career across the stage, taking out literally everything in their path.

"When that happens, I will attempt to walk through them without being struck."

As he psyched himself up for the trick, he said: "I need complete faith in science to make this work."

A worried-looking Simon said: "He's crazy," as the balls were set alight.

Performing the trick while blindfolded, the balls were released, but as pointed out by Ant and Dec, they didn't look quite in sync. Ant said from the sidelines: "That's not right, is it? Is that right?"

Kevin did make it safely through the cannonballs, but did confirm to the judges that the pendulum balls had in fact come slightly out of sync, which of course increased the likelihood of hitting him, as well as the tension in everyone watching.

Of course, people on social media voiced their fears for the scientist, but they also cottoned on to ITV's quite unnecessary 'don't try this at home' warning.

One person tweeted: "#BGT #BritainsGotTalent DON'T TRY THIS AT HOME. Puts away scaffolding, cannonballs and blow torch."
