Britain’s Got Talent producers call in extra security over ‘acid attack fears’ in London

Britain’s Got Talent producers have upped security for the celebrity judges over ‘acid attack fears’ in London, according to a report.

Britain’s Got Talent bosses have reportedly called in extra security amid fears of an acid attack.

Security are said to be on high-alert at the London auditions following multiple cases of ‘acid attacks’ across the capital.

Fans attending the auditions at the London Palladium are said to have been subjected to extra security checks, the Daily Star reports.

Not only has security been upped for BGT judges Simon Cowell, David Walliams, Alesha Dixon and Amanda Holden – Hosts Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly are said to be surrounded at all times too.

A BGT fan took to Twitter to say that audience members are no longer allowed to take open bottles into the Palladium: “London Palladium are stopping people taking opened bottles of water/drink in,

“They’re selling 500ml bottles of water to audience members for £2.50.

“Presumably due to risk of acid attacks? They didn’t do this a year ago. How sad they’ve decided to profit from the situation!” the fan added.

A Britain’s Got Talent spokeswoman said: “We take the safety around the show very seriously.

“We continually review security procedures to ensure they meet our needs.”

Britain’s Got Talent 2018 will air on ITV later this year.
