Holy Smokes!

He was once the former flame of Sophie Monk as he tried in vain to win her heart on The Bachelorette in 2017.
But Apollo Jackson's burning desire to return to reality TV has become abundantly clear, with the magician appearing in a new promo for the upcoming season of Australia's Got Talent – and is literally set on fire.
Umm, can we just take this moment to say, WOAH!

Appearing on stage in front of AGT judges Manu Feildel, Nicole Scherzinger , Shane Jacobson, and Lucy Durack, the Bachie star reveals the dangerous stunt he's about to perform.
"I'm going to be suspended from the ceiling, the pulley system is set to drop me face first towards a bed of razor sharp flaming spikes," Apollo explains.
"The only way to stop the drop system is a switch located in a locked and chained box outside of reach. And to take this escape to the next level, I'm going to be doused in gasoline."
Not quite your average magic trick then!

Understandably, the judges and audience are completely freaked out.
Even Apollo seems a little worried before starting the death-defying act.
"I'm really nervous about this, there is a chance that things could go seriously wrong," he admits. "I'm willing to risk my life on stage for this."
So will he pull it off? We'll be waiting – with gritted teeth - for AGT to start to find out.
