‘Britain’s Got Talent’ Stunt Man Has Everyone Cowering In Fear
It's Britain's Got Talent time again, the time of year where the UK watches in amazement at people's skills. Whether it's singing, dancing, comedy, magic or stunts, there's something in it for everyone.
But one contestant on the show's opening night had an act that was so intense that the judges and audience members couldn't watch.
Sascha Williams came onto the stage with not that much enthusiasm and everyone doubted whether he was going to be a dub. But it quickly when from zero to 100 and people were screaming as he tried to balance on a board. But that was child's play compared to what he did next.
The 29-year-old got stacked four cylinders on top of each other but at alternating angles to ensure maintaining balance was virtually impossible.
As he was preparing to launch the stunt, audience members shifted in their chairs and covered their faces with their hands. One said what we were all thinking: "No way!"
Incredibly, he managed to stay on the apparatus for about four seconds until it all came crashing down and everyone in the theatre properly thought he was a goner. But it seemed to be all a part of the act when he firmly landed on two feet.
For added effect, Sascha did a back-flip onto the stage and the crowd went absolutely bloody ballistic.
People at home said the trick made their blood pressure skyrocket.

It was a very good way to kick off 2018 Britain's Got Talent but Sascha might have been upstaged by Mr Uekusa.
The contestant involved him stripping naked to perform a series of stunts to a Daft Punk track.
Speaking through a translator, the Japanese star explained to the baffled but amused judges that his full-time job is 'international variety performer'.
Simon Cowell was clearly a little bit behind, asking Uekusa what he does for a living - only for fellow judge David Walliams to chip in: "He's an international variety performer. Unless his job has changed in the last few seconds I'd say he's still an international variety performer."
Uekusa begins his audition in a smart suit and Union Jack bow tie, but suddenly rips open his shirt to reveal a naked torso - much to the surprise of Ant and Dec, who spin round to cameras with mischievous grins on their faces.
Next the trousers are whipped off in one swift movement, leaving only his pants - which is when Uekusa confuses viewers even more by chucking a pair of tights over his head. Simon is so weirded out that he looks almost concerned, which is brilliant.
But it's when he removes his underwear that the audience knows they've not seen anything yet, and Ant, Dec and David Walliams burst into shocked laughter.
Lying down, covered only in a shiny red cloth, Uekusa places cups and saucers over his nipples and, erm, his nether region, before performing the same trick - again, without fault - to leave him lying naked on the stage... his modesty covered only by a few bits of crockery.
Pretty captivating, you've got to give him that.
