BGT judges stunned by 'naked' modelITV

Britain's Got Talent fans will never, ever forget Japanese jokester Tonikaku Akarui Yasumura.

Mysteriously taking to the stage in his robe this evening (April 22), the contestant was treated cautiously by each of the judges - newcomer Bruno Tonioli, Amanda Holden, Simon Cowell and Alesha Dixon - before dressing right down to his briefs.

In a hilarious twist, Toni was a 'naked' model who kept his underwear on; jumping and dancing around the stage, and then landing in a carefully positioned pose as to give the illusion of nudity.

After each short routine, he shouted to the crowd: "Don't worry, I'm wearing...!"

Mirroring their reaction, Bruno, Amanda, Simon and Alesha were completely won over by Tonikaku's wit and originality, sending him through to the next round with ease.

"You might actually be my favourite contestant of the whole series so far!" smiled the latter, while former Strictly Come Dancing panelist Bruno quipped: "I have to say, you definitely have balls!"

"Toni, you are absolutely unique and it felt very Britain's Got Talent. I loved it," was Amanda's feedback, as Simon went on to claim that he'd been the funniest auditionee "all year".

In other news, Alesha recently told Saturday Kitchen that the absence of judge David Walliams "felt strange" after working together for a decade.

"It's like a new normal, a new energy. But Bruno did fantastically well. I think it's quite difficult coming in as the newbie, but he came with all his energy and pizzazz and the audience loved him," she reflected.

The Little Britain comic stepped away from the show following some leaked transcripts from behind the scenes.
