Angara Contortion, the contortionist group who made us and David Walliams gasp in horror and admiration with their frankly insane body skills/strength/flexibility on Britain's Got Talent, have found themselves caught up in a cheating scandal.

The group, who bagged four massive yeses from the judges, are apparently already mega successful as they have spent years travelling the world as part famous dance troupe Cirque du Soleil.

Cirque du Soleil is the largest theatrical production in the world and the show has watched by 160 million people in 400+ countries.

The group have also performed on James Corden's Late Late Show in L.A.

Speaking after their audition, the group said that it had been a "dream" to perform on such a show and a Britain’s Got Talent spokesperson responded to the cheating claims by released a statement saying "Anyone can apply whether pro or amateur."

And despite the professional group auditioning, many viewers were pretty impressed the the group (we mean, we can barely touch our toes) and even questioned why they didn't get the GOLDEN BUZZER treatment.

What do you make of all that then?
