It has been reported that a number of Britain’s Got Talent semi-finalists, all hand-picked by Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden, David Walliams, and Alesha Dixon, were forced to flee rehearsals following the discovery of a World War Two bomb.

The 50kg bomb was apparently found by builders, who were working in a car park in Empire Way, which is just a few moments away from Wembley Stadium.

Everyone in a 400meter radius of the bomb, including those living in two housing estates and a student halls, were evacuated from the area.

Show bosses are now reportedly waiting to hear whether or not they will be allowed to return to the Fountain Studios in Wembley Park Drive, where the show is filmed.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "We are now in an absolute panic about Monday. If the area does take a week to secure, then we won't be able to hold the semis at Fountain.

"We've been holding BGT and X Factor live shows there for years and there aren't many other venues in London suitable at such ridiculously short notice."

They added: "Simon was going to run his eye over the acts and they would hone their performances. There's no way they will be as well prepared now."

Will the show go on?
Will the show go on?

"It was all incredibly dramatic and scary.

"Let's just pray they get this sorted as quickly as possible."

Meanwhile a spokesman for the ITV show told The Mirror: "We will have to wait to hear from the police when we will be allowed back in."

Will the show go on? We guess we'll have to wait until tomorrow night to find out...
