Ant and Dec return to ITV for the eleventh series of Britain’s biggest talent search Britain’s Got Talent. It premieres on Saturday 15 April at 8.00pm on ITV. The judging panel – author and comedian David Walliams, singer Alesha Dixon, actress Amanda Holden and talent show supremo Simon Cowell – return for the sixth year running in a bid to uncover even more UK talent. Auditions have been held across
the country, looking to find a variety act fit for royalty and worthy of a big cash prize, with the judges attending performances in Blackpool, Birmingham, Manchester and London.
The judges provide as much entertainment as the acts themselves as they debate the talent and entertainment value of each wannabe superstar. None of the hopefuls wish to hear the dreaded sound of the judges’ buzzers, but if all four judges push theirs, the audition will be cut short and the dream will be over. The golden buzzer is available again this year, enabling each judge – plus hosts Ant and Dec – to send one act straight through to the live semi-finals regardless of the other judges’ opinions.
As always, Ant and Dec wait in the wings to provide support, either joining in the celebrations or offering a shoulder to cry on as the acts exit the stage. Which of the acts will be returning for another performance and the chance to take the stage at this
year’s Royal Variety Show?
Britain’s Got Talent Season 11 Premiere airs on Saturday 15 April 2017 at 8.00pm on ITV.
