Offering more variety than The X Factor and The Voice, which solely search for singers, the programme sees the young, the old, the good and the bad audition for a chance to showcase their talent for the Queen at the prestigious Royal Variety Performance. The show sees everything from dancers and singers to comedians, magicians, and even performing dogs, leaving fans entertained week after week until the grand final. This year sees Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon and David Walliams all return to the panel, with head judge Simon Cowell also back to offer his blunt and honest opinion. It’s the same line-up the show has had since 2012, showing that the revolving door of judges on other talent competitions doesn’t apply here. Discussing their return, Simon said: “Amanda is so much fun to work with and has great instincts. Alesha has proved to be a brilliant judge, has an amazing eye for talent, and is a pleasure to be around. And then there’s David…” Show host Ant McPartlin, who as always presents the show alongside Declan Donnelly, clearly agrees that it’s a great line-up. “I think the BGT judging panel is the best one on TV – the dynamic really works between the four of them,” he told The Mirror. “You get a bit of something different from all of them. They are all looking for something a bit different.” Ant and Dec have presented the show since it began in 2007, and the multiple National Television Award winning pair are showing no signs of leaving any time soon – much to fans’ delight. However, they won’t be returning to the judging panel this year, claiming they’re not cut out for it after filling in for Simon at one of last year’s auditions. “We didn’t enjoy it last year,” Dec said, while Ant added, “We found it too tough to say no.” We don’t know much about this year’s contestants, but Amanda claims that they may have found their winner on day one in Edinburgh. “A bold claim,” the show’s main Twitter account notes, “but we’re not disagreeing.” There’s not long to wait until we can watch the auditions ourselves; Britain’s Got Talent returns to ITV this April. n “I think the BGT judging panel is the best one on TV.” 16 Image Credit: Steve Vas/Featureflash
