Stephen Mulhern at the Britain's Got Talent auditions

Stephen Mulhern has joked he would walk a tightrope whilst juggling axes if he were to audition for 'Britain's Got Talent'

Stephen Mulhern would walk a tightrope whilst juggling axes if he were to audition for 'Britain's Got Talent'.

The 37-year-old presenter - who hosts 'BGT' spin-off show 'Britain's Got More Talent' - has revealed he would choose to do something shocking and dangerous if he were to audition for the ITV talent show.

Asked what he'd try to wow judges Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon and David Walliams, he joked: "I would do tightrope walking whilst juggling axes. I have given it a go once... My assistant is no longer with us, he didn't catch them."

The 'Catchphrase' star also admitted he's bored of seeing singers and dance troupes audition for the show and wants someone to do something really unusual.

Speaking at the London auditions of 'BGT' at the Dominion Theatre, he said: "I want to see an act that is just the weirdest thing I have ever seen in nine years.

"I don't want to see singing, I just want to see the originality of the guy who came about three or four years ago and got himself in a laundry bin, one of those big bags, and sang a song. That's the sort of stuff I want."

Meanwhile, presenters Ant & Dec have given hopefuls planning to audition some advice on how to approach it.

Dec said: "Don't slag the judges off before you get going, we've had that before. People have come out and said, 'Oh Amanda I love you, Alesha I love you, David I love you ... Simon, you get my on my nerves'. Immediately you're on the back foot, immediately that's one vote you're not getting.

"Someone came out the other day and had a go at Alesha for being rude so immediately, again, that was a no, no."
