In its 16th series, the multi-award-winning talent extravaganza is back and bigger than ever before with even more awe-inspiring and show-stopping performers all vying to impress the judges and secure their place in the live-semi-finals taking place later this year.

Last month, performer Bruno Tonioli was confirmed as the brand-new judge, joining Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden and Alesha Dixon. Inimitable duo, Ant and Dec will also be returning as hosts ready to cheer and console the acts brave enough to brace the stage of the famous theatre.

TV Zone and Super TV understand that this series will see at least eight Golden Buzzers, rather than the usual five. Traditionally, each judge - plus hosts Ant & Dec - get one Golden Buzzer each. However, this year will have more Golden Buzzers than ever before.

A new 'joint' Golden Buzzer will be introduced, where all four judges press the buzzer to send the act on stage through to the live semi-finals. Plus, it's understood that judges Simon Cowell and Bruno Tonioli have broken the rules and pressed their buzzers for a second act each.

"Sometimes you have to break the rules" Simon told the audience after he pressed his Golden Buzzer for the second time this series. It's unclear whether fellow judges Amanda Holden and Alesha Dixon have also been given a second act to choose.

Expect the unexpected as the acts battle it out for the chance to scoop the massive £250,000 prize and perform to royalty at the prestigious Royal Variety Performance when Britain's Got Talent returns to ITV1 this Spring.

TV Zone approached Fremantle for comment on this report.
