BGT TO AUDITION INTERNATIONAL ACTS VIA VIDEO FOR NEXT SERIES

Updated: Jan 3

The next series of Britain's Got Talent is set to feature international acts auditioning from their home countries abroad for the first time - due to travel restrictions imposed as a result of the Coronavirus Pandemic.

A source told The Sun: "It would get around the fact that acts can’t fly in to take part in the show as they normally do and mean bosses can still put on a show... "The format has been commissioned in 58 countries so they have crews. It will have high production value and cinematic feel." Ant & Dec will return to present the audition rounds of the ITV talent show, with judges Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon and David Walliams.

The London auditions were originally scheduled to take place at the London Coliseum on Sunday 17th, Monday 18th, Tuesday 19th and Wednesday 20th January 2021. However, the auditions will now record between 28th January - 1st February, due to new Tier 4 restrictions in London.
