BGT escapologist feared dead as crew rush in – and Cheryl looks horrified

Britain's Got Talent finalist Jonathan Goodwin could have died during tonight's sickening final performance.

The escapologist risked his life by being buried alive under a tonne of gravel in a deadly trick he had never attempted before.

Jonathan was put inside a box while wrapped in chains, with his arms cuffed behind his back, with only a pin to help him escape.

His head was completely immersed for what seemed like an eternity and the camera panned to a famous face in the crowd – Cheryl.

The former Girls Aloud singer, who has just released new single Let You, looked sick with worry during the nail-biting wait.

Jonathan had confessed that more escape artists had died attempting this trick than anything else, which made it worrying when he didn't emerge.

The audience fell silent and the health and safety team ran onto the stage in case they needed to intervene.

But they were not required as Jonathan's head eventually appeared at the top and he pulled a rope to release the gravel.

Confused BGT fans did not understand why the camera get panning to Cheryl.

One viewer said: "The highlight of tonight’s show is @CherylOfficial being in the audience"

The look on @CherylOfficial face through Jonathon Goodwin’s performance," added another.

A third asked: "Why did we just watch Cheryl making faces during that act?"

The judges certainly loved the performance and were full of compliments for Jonathan.

Alesha Dixon asked: "What is wrong with you. I turned to David during that and said 'I don't know whether to laugh or cry. it's not good for my nerves. You could be the next David Blaine or something. So thrilling."

Amanda Holden said: "It was thrilling, brilliant, scary. When the health and safety come on it's worrying."

Giving his view, Simon Cowell joked: "Thanks again, Jonathan. Millie, your daughter, needs to watch a few Disney cartoons."

David Walliams added: "I think this was one of the dos thrilling acts of all and if there’s any gravel left over I’ll have it for my driveway."

BGT viewers were horrified and amazed by his performance and believe Jonathan could be the winner.

"Jonathan deserves to win just for that I had mad anxiety watching that," said on fan.

Another agreed: "Wow. One of the best final performances they’ve EVER had surely??"
