Amanda Holden horrified by scariest act in BGT history as woman turns into ghost

Amanda Holden is horrified by the 'scariest act in Britain's Got Talent history' during the series opener.

The 48-year-old screams in terror after a magician transforms into a woman who died over 100 years ago in front of her eyes.

The judges are feeling nervous before the performance even begins as the lights start flickering in the theatre.

Mysterious performer Elizabeth walks up to the judges table, hands Amanda a dusty, old journal, then leads her to the side of the stage.

"I'm scared, I'm scared," confesses Amanda as she is taken down some stairs and into a dark room.


The pair sit down at a table which is covered in old black and white photos.

Elizabeth explains that the people pictured lived and died over 100 years ago and asks Amanda to count them face down one at a time onto the table.

Amanda has to stop when she feels a connection to one og the photos and place it face down into a cigar box.


The photograph has the words "Agatha Turner 1860" written on the front, and remarkably she is described in a bookmarked page in the journal.

Freaked out Amanda then looks over her left shoulder and sees the name written on the wall.

As she turns back round Elizabeth has transformed into the ghost of Agatha Turner.

Horrified Amanda screams in shock as the ghost grabs her arm.


The rest of the judges and the audience, who are watching via a video link, also starts screaming in terror.

Amanda starts swearing as she cries: "Oh my god I want to go home."

Just as it seems like the worst is over as Amanda leaves the dark room, the ghost then turns back into the magician.

Screaming Amanda puts her head in her hands and admits she thought she was going to start crying.

When she settles back down in her chair, the judge says: "It was horrific and brilliant."

Simon Cowell describes the act as "amazing", while David Walliams admits he was "seriously spooked".

Alesha Dixon adds: "It was the most scary act we’ve ever had on the show and I want to see more."

Will it be enough for a place in the next round?

*Britain's Got Talent airs on Saturday at 7.15pm on ITV
