Trial by sword for Talent presenter

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.

Ant said: "I was genuinely terrified as Aaron was coming towards me. All credit to Aaron though, it was an incredible act. Everyone was on the edge of their seats."

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 could actually die, and the fact that it was Ant made it more exciting, I've got to be honest with you."

Trust your intuition about a domestic matter. If you think it's time to get a new place, start looking for one. You could find a home that cultivates tranquillity and relaxation. Escaping the fray will be a relief. Although you enjoy socialising, you also crave private time. Being able to watch movies, read books and listen to music replenishes your batteries. A needy relative could request help. This would be a good time to establish some healthy boundaries. Stop dropping everything for this relative's benefit.More
