A TV source added: ‘The health and safety of all the performers is a huge priority to the show and producers will only allow acts to take part who they are certain are adequately prepared.’
Taking to their social media platform, the group of three friends shared a snap of themselves dressed in their signature clown masks alongside an emotional message which detailed their departure.
The caption read: ‘We’ve learned to stay humble in the good times and humble in defeat. We’ve worked for the last 4 months on an act so ambitious and out there that we’ve put our sanity, blood, sweat, fire and tears on the line.
‘Through circumstance and bad luck out of our hands sadly we aren’t in a position where we can deliver what we set out to do. It kills me that we’ve failed and that we will no longer be in 2019’s @bgt competition.’
