Amanda Holden's all part of the act for Britain's Got Talent strongman

By Albertina Lloyd

It is an evening of eye-popping stunts in Britain's Got Talent tonight, with a balloon-bursting dog, a female magician and a strongman who lifts judge Amanda Holden over his head.

Russian-born Vladimir Georgievsky from Swansea has everyone gasping and grimacing with his death-defying trampoline act.

The 45-year-old discovered his talent when he bought a trampoline for his two sons to play on.

He then proceeds to wow with his slapstick acrobatics, which see him appear to fall down a ladder, get his head stuck in the springs of the trampoline and crashing into a diving board as he leaps and bounds around.

David Walliams laughs: "I think you're secretly really good at trampolining, aren't you?!"

Cally The Wonderdog struggles in her attempt to break the world record for the most balloons popped in a minute, but dog-lover Simon Cowell may be prepared to forgive the Jack Russell, saying he is "really, really gutted" for her.

Las Vegas magician's assistant Chloe Crawford proves she has learned a few tricks of the trade with her incredible illusion involving a motorbike.

Cowell is not usually a fan of magic, but the 26-year-old blonde may be the one to convert him.

He tells her: "You've kind of brought Vegas back to London and I like that. And you are someone we're going to remember."

Alesha Dixon adds: "It's refreshing to see a beautiful woman doing magic."

But Dixon is booed by the audience when she says she is not impressed by aspiring dancer Dylan Byrd (16) from Co Cavan, who made his first plane journey in order to audition.
