All five of the Britain's Got Talent semi-finals will be pre-recorded in front of a virtual audience. The virtual audience's reactions will be beamed into the studio on a giant screen.
As usual, Ant and Dec will present whilst Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon and David Walliams will be joined by Ashley Banjo at the judges’ desk, stepping in for Simon Cowell who continues to recover from breaking his back in the States.
Eight contestants will perform in each semi-final and the judges will choose one act to go through. The second finalist will then be chosen via public vote when the episode airs. The series will then culminate with the live final, in October.
Britain's Got Talent's first semi-final airs Saturday 05th September at 8pm on ITV.
