Britain’s Got Talent was thrown into chaos over the weekend as an ambulance was on the scene after a finalist suffered an injury live on stage.

Ssaulabi Performance Troupe were part of Sunday’s grand final battling 10 other acts, but it was singer Sydnie Christmas who won the £250,000 prize and a chance to perform at the Royal Variety Show.

But for the high flying martial arts experts, things took a very different turn as one of the dance act’s members suffered a nasty fall during their routine.

After hitting an impressive somersault, two of the performers actually collided in mid-air, and one of them appeared to hit a bad landing and struggled to get to his feet.

He ended up collapsing to the ground and had to crawl off stage to get help, while cameras cut away as the rest of the group pushed on without them.

The performer did return for the judges’ comments as they came back on at the back of the troupe – who were a Golden Buzzer act for hosts Ant and Dec earlier in the series – while Alesha Dixon said she hoped they were OK.

In photos from the final, an ambulance was spotted with paramedics on the scene, and the performer appeared to be sat in the back getting checked over.

In other pictures, they were helped towards a waiting car, while other members of the group waved for the cameras as they left the venue.

There has be no public update from BGT or the act, but fans were immediately concerned as they watched everything unfold on television.

‘Did one of the performers just break their foot looked serious #bgtfinal,’ wrote one viewer on X, as someone else added: ‘This is ever so cool but did I just see mateyboi break his foot and crawl off? That’s gotta hurt #bgtfinal’

And a third person said: ‘These martial arts peeps should win tbf I’ve not seen half these people before and this is actual talent… plus one has literally crawled off stage and probably broken his foot in the process so fair play #BGT’
