Britain’s Got Talent returns to our screens tomorrow for a twelfth series of guaranteed hilarity, bizarreness and questionable talent.
People really do all sorts to compete for a £250,000 cash prize and the chance to impress the Queen at the annual Royal Variety Performance.
One contestant aiming for a spot at the big do, Mr Uekusa, took things to a whole new weird level giving the judges an unexpected strip show they will never forget.
You can watch it all here:

Mr Uekusa answering the question ‘What is your day job? What are you going to do for us today?’ saying ‘international variety performer’ leaving us questioning whether he strips for entertainment on a daily basis.
Something Simon Cowell clearly struggled to appreciate before he kicked off his performance.
Dressed in a suit complete with a Union Jack printed bow tie, the audience were rather taken aback when he ripped off his shirt and trousers as soon as his routine began.
Then, naturally, to the tune of Daft Punk’s One More Time, Mr Uekusa started performing a series of odd stunts which left the judges stunned.
First he was seen knotting a pair of nude tights around his head before balancing a glass filled with liquid on his cheek.
Ripping off the hosiery, amazingly Mr Uekusa managed not to spill a single drop earning him cheers from the majority of the audience.
It’s safe to say though they became increasingly unimpressed as he attached plungers to his nipples and performed the same trick using a strip of red satin.
Things got more uncomfortably cringeworthy when Mr Uekusa proceeded to get completely naked leaving presenters Ant and Dec rather alarmed as they watched from the side of the stage.
Judge David Walliams though seemed to be enjoying the act unable to stop laughing as the hopeful contestant lay down on the floor covered in nothing but a large red sheet of fabric.
Placing three cups and saucers strategically over his chest and downstairs region, Mr Uekusa successfully whipped off the sheet leaving him fully naked except for the dinnerware.
The judges and audience clearly didn’t know whether to laugh or cry!
Following being charged with a drink-driving offence last month, host Ant McPartlin is taking time off from our screens, Declan Donnelly will be presenting Britain’s Got Talent alone.
According to The Sun, ITV announced the news in a statement on Tuesday April 10:
Dec will be hosting the live shows, which for the first time ever are coming from the Hammersmith Apollo, while Ant steps down from his TV commitments for now.
We send Ant all our love. And we know that Dec will do a brilliant job.
Since Dec completely smashed hosting Saturday Night Takeaway alone, we are sure he will do a fantastic job with Britain’s Got Talent.
42-year-old Ant is due to appear in court on April 16 after he was involved in a three-car collision in London last month.
He spent time in rehab last year for painkiller and alcohol addiction.
