BRITAIN'S GOT TALENT 'UNLIKELY TO RETURN UNTIL SPRING 2022'

The chances of Britain's Got Talent airing this year (2021) are "extremely slim to non-existent", according to a new report.



A source told The Mirror: "The nature of Britain’s Got Talent means we have all sorts of contestants from all sorts of places – home and abroad - taking part...


"While many people will have been vaccinated by the summer it remains unclear what the restrictions on mass mingling and on travel will be, so there are absolutely no guarantees production can go ahead. The chances of it airing this year range from extremely slim to non-existent - and it’s almost certain to be the latter. No one’s happy about it – but that’s the way it is."


Earlier this month, ITV officially postponed the series from this Spring. An ITV spokesperson said: "The filming for the 15th series of Britain's Got Talent has been postponed from its proposed record dates in late January...


"With the announcement of the latest Government health guidelines and with our priority of safeguarding the well-being of everyone involved in our programmes we, together with the production teams at Thames and Syco, have taken the decision to move the record and broadcast of the forthcoming series. We will confirm revised dates in due course."


ITV are yet to comment on The Mirror article.
