Britain's Got Talent host Ant McPartlin ends up at the sharp end of the show when an act drags him on stage for a daring sword trick.

Aaron Crow picked on the presenter after getting a couple of members of the audience involved during his audition on the ITV show.

He poured candle wax in his eyes before covering his face and slicing through a selection of props held by the nervous volunteers - including a pineapple balanced on Ant's head.

The act impressed show boss Simon Cowell who said it was "great".

He said: "I love the idea of watching something where there is a possibility that someone actually could actually die, and the fact that it was Ant made it more exciting, I've got to be honest with you."

Watch Britain's Got Talent at 7pm on ITV1 tonight.
