David Walliams apparently got a shock when a dog peed on him.According to the Daily Star newspaper, an act had enticed both David and Simon Cowell on stage with the promise of 'dog yoga'.

As well dog problems, it's been reported that an illusionist who was hoping to wow the judges with an underwater escape trick had his act go very wrong.

He had been ready to chain himself up before being submerged underwater in a tank where he would - hopefully free himself.

But the big performance ended in disaster when the water tank broke and flooded the stage, prompting fears of starting a fire with all of the filming electronics.

Meanwhile, another completely act on stage at this year's BGT auditions caused chaos by storming off after receiving negative feedback from the judges.

A choir left the panel speechless when they walked off stage half way through the comments from the panel after a flop audition.

Britain's Got Talent will air on ITV later this year.
