A junior knife thrower who nearly skewered Simon Cowell on hit TV show Britain’s Got Talent is coming to town.

Talented circus performer Edward Pinder, 11, who recently appeared on the ITV show, will be one of many attractions taking part in the circus at Rossington Miners Welfare, which arrives in town tonight until Sunday.

Edward made headlines when one of his knives narrowly missed the TV mogul - but despite the drama, he was still voted through to the next round by the judges.
