A BRITAIN'S Got Talent judge is given a close shave with a flying blade in tonight's show.

Knife thrower Edward Pinder, 11, from Uppingham, works on his act with his mother but soon changes target when he gets on stage leaving the judges open-mouthed and Cowell saying: "I kind of felt my life going in front of me then."

Amanda Holden, above, tells him: "You nearly killed Simon Cowell."

Classical violinist Lettice Rowbotham, 24, also takes to the stage, as well as a singer and a circus performer.
