Deadly Games daredevil Alfredo Silva has revealed that his wife Anna could DIE during their Britain’s Got Talent: The Champions performance this weekend as the knife thrower attempts his most “dangerous” stunt yet.
The duo, who shot to fame on America’s Got Talent, will show UK audiences their death-defying tricks this Saturday, and Alberto tells The Sun Online that his other half might not make it if something goes wrong.

Alfredo revealed: “If I miss, she could die.”
He continued: “I don’t want to give too much away but basically we are going to use Anna’s flexibility and I am going to shoot arrows very close to her body. That’s all I can say.
“This is the best and the most dangerous performance we have put together, ever. We have especially created one trick just for this show. She forces me to be precise. I’ve got to [get the] bullseye for that shot or she can pay a high price for it.”
That said, Anna says she does not fear for her life.
She revealed: “He never missed. People come to me and say, ‘Why are you not scared?’ but I am so confident of him, I am never scared.”
The couple are from Las Vegas, Nevada, and met eight years before their audition, eventually marrying in 2014.
Alfredo, a sixth-generation performer, studied magic, juggling, and the very dangerous Globe of Death before falling in love with knife-throwing.
Anna, a professional ballerina from Russia, spent many years as a choreographer, and in 2009 she combined her love of dance with Alfredo’s knife throwing and Deadly Games was born.

They competed on season 11 of America’s Got Talent in 2016 but were eliminated at the semi-final stage.
In their act Alfredo threw knives towards Anna as she stood still before she turned her back on him and moved from side to side as he continued to throw knives.
The performance concluded with Alfredo throwing flaming knives around Anna as she stood still.
Judges Howie Mandel, Mel B, Heidi Klum, and Simon Cowell all voted “Yes”, sending the duo to the Judge Cuts, where Alfredo popped balloons in Anna’s hands and mouth.
He also threw a set of knives around Anna as she span around on a wheel.

During their performance, Alfredo threw knives at Anna while she dodged them, then he shot an apple on top of her head with a crossbow, and finally aimed knives while she was on a rotating frame.
He then requested for judges Terry Crews, Howie, Mel B, Heidi and Simon to stand in line with Anna while holding balloons so that they could all be shot at once with a crossbow being aimed at a target.
The couple finished outside the top five in the Champions final.

The BGT spin-off kicked off last Saturday with favourites such as Ashleigh, of Ashleigh and Pudsey fame, Paul Potts and Connie Talbot returning to the stage.
There was shock though when all three acts failed to make it through to the finals.
Instead the audience voted for Annaliese and Bello Nock, a daredevil duo from America, to be the evening’s winners.
They will join Amanda’s Golden Buzzer, Kseniya Simonova, in the upcoming final.
