Britain’s Got Talent star Alex Magala hurt himself during the live semi-finals.
The sword swallower, who wasn’t allowed to perform his act live on the show because it was deemed too dangerous by ITV bosses, revealed the injuries left on his body during an appearance on ITV’s Lorraine earlier today.
Rolling up his sleeves, the rising star showed the camera a long cut across his left arm, proving just how risky his stunts are.
However, despite his injuries, Alex promised his next routine – which is already life-threatening – would be even more dangerous.

“For the final, I will be doing different stunts which I’ve never performed before,” he said. “It’s going to be a crazy combination of things. I’m really excited about performing.”
Alex, who has previously won Russia’s Got Talent, then went on to explain why he decided to apply for the British version of the programme.

“This is special because of Simon [Cowell],” he explained before quickly remembering the existence of Amanda Holden, David Walliams and Alesha Dixon. “And the other judges too!
“When I saw this show for the first time, I’m never loved something so much. It has built who I am today. Now, I feel ready to present my best performance on the show that inspired me.
