However, none of that happened on the set of a show. But, in October, on the Extreme edition, Jonathan Goodwin had a terrible accident and he ended up paralyzed. During his act, he was meant to escape from a straightjacket and fall onto an air mattress.

It all took place during a rehearsal, and apart from escaping, he had to do it whilst two swinging cars hurtled towards him. Mistiming resulted in the cars colliding, catching fire, and causing Jonathan to fall and break his back.
