Britain’s Got Talent semi-finalist axed from competition just hours before show
Britain's Got Talent act The Brotherhood have been forced to withdraw from their semi-final performance.

The group are known for their daring stunts and performed with samurai swords during their first audition.
A source told the Mirror: " The health and safety of all the performers is a huge priority to the show and producers will only allow acts to take part who they are certain are adequately prepared."
Announcing their departure on Instagram , The Brotherhood said in a statement: "We’ve learned to stay humble in the good times and humble in defeat. We’ve worked for the last 4 months on an act so ambitious and out there that we’ve put our sanity, blood, sweat, fire and tears on the line.
"Through circumstance and bad luck out of our hands sadly we aren’t in a position where we can deliver what we set out to do. It kills me that we’ve failed and that we will no longer be in 2019’s @bgt competition.
We are truly gutted that we won’t get to be in the fight but we aimed for the stars and fell short.
"It’s been an absolutely incredible ride for BGT this year and I wish all the acts still In the competition the best of luck and success and that a magic act can bring home the crown again.
"If we’ve taken anything from this, it’s that collectively YOU can achieve great things, no matter what’s in front of you. No matter what is happening in the world, the power of friendship and dreaming big is a powerful thing.
Thank you to each and every single person that messaged us (both the love and the hate)- you’ve made us smile and proud. 4 yes’s and 2.6 million views on YouTube makes this crazy ride worth it.
Big love. See you soon."
A BGT Spokesperson confirmed to the Mirror: "The Brotherhood have had to withdraw from the Britain's Got Talent Live Semi-Finals. Libby and Charlie will now be performing on Friday nights show. "
