Britain’s Got Talent returns to ITV tonight with another round of talent-packed auditions hosted by Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly.
Viewers first see act Barbara Nice with Ant and Dec backstage asking them if they can help her with a word search she’s trying to fill out.
Speaking to the Geordie duo, she says: “I am trying to do a word search, I don’t know whether you’re any good, can you find incubator?”
As the pair collapse into a fit of giggles, Dec takes a look at the word search and finds the word for her.
Barbara then walks onto the stage and is asked by David Walliams to introduce herself, which she does with an explanation as to why she has such an unusual name.
She reveals: “Barbara Nice, Barbara as in Streisand and Nice as in the biscuit,” to which David Walliams replied: “They are nice those biscuits, aren’t they?”
Beginning her act, the comedian says: “I’m gonna put my bag for life down, I’ve got about 49 bags for live, I should never die,” before singing the line: “But who wants to live forever?” and joking: “Not me, I’ve got no proper pension.”
She then continues to say that she was proud of the dress she was wearing today and jokes: “Forget DKNY, this frock was CPL, Cats Protection League.”
After a few more gags, Barbara calls out to a group of men in the crowd who she “met in the queue” and explains that she would be stage diving for the final part of her act.
With the help of the group that have come forward to the edge of the stage, she makes it safely onto the judges table and accidentally presses David’s red button causing the auditorium to erupt into even more laughter.
Then it was time for Barbara to hear what the judges thought of her act but before they did she remarks: “Can I get my glasses? I might not be able to hear what you’re saying.”
Amanda Holden begins with: “Oh, Barbara I was almost too frightened to laugh because every single word that came out of your mouth was hysterical, I think you’re a genius.”
Alesha Dixon continues: “Everything about you is appealing, something about your voice is just hypnotising in the funniest way and I think so many people are going to love you. I think you’re fabulous.”
But will Barbara get those all important yeses she needs? Viewers will have to tune in to tonight’s episode to find out whether Barbara makes it through to the next stage.
Last week’s episode on the ITV talent show saw a jaw-dropping performance by Jonathan Goodwin, a stuntman from South Wales who set himself on fire.
During the act, he traps himself in a straight jacket whilst being suspended from the ceiling upside down as he is engulfed in flames.
When asked how dangerous the act was going to be on a scale of one to ten, he said: “This is going to be a ten.”
His assistant then strapped him into the straight jacket before Jonathan douses himself in what is believed to be petrol and his assistant then sets him on fire.
After a tense few minutes, Jonathan eventually frees himself and grabs for a fire extinguisher to put out the flames.
The audience erupted into cheers and the stuntman received a standing ovation from the auditorium and the judges.
Britain’s Got Talent is on tonight at 8pm on ITV.
