ITV have announced that, for the fourth year, the judging panel on Britain’s Got Talent will remain the same.
Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon and David Walliams are all returning to the judging panel whilst Ant and Dec are also back to host the show. After mixed success last year The Golden Buzzer will also be coming back and will give each judge the chance to send one act through to the semi-finals.
The quartet of judges will be touring the country starting this week in Edinburgh and then going on to Manchester, Birmingham and London.
Of the news Simon Cowell said, “‘I’m really looking forward to starting auditions on Britain’s Got Talent next week. I feel very confident in my role as a judge on the show and I look forward to hopefully finding a star. 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…’
Amanda Holden added, “I can’t wait to head off to the auditions. We always find some fantastic talent – as well as the bizarre and hilarious! I have a feeling that this year, as always, we will see some extraordinary things. That’s what makes it so exciting. It will be brilliant to get back with all of the gang to catch-up, have some fun and I’m looking forward to getting into a lot of trouble with Alesha and making sure the boys are kept in order!”
Alesha Dixon said, “The great thing about this show is that you never know what’s going to turn up on the day. I’m so happy to be reunited with Simon, Amanda and David, and to be surprised, shocked and amazed all over again at the talent on offer.”
David Walliams quipped, “I am delighted to be back on the panel with the three girls.”
Last year’s Britain’s Got Talent was won by Collabro who went on to have a No. 1 hit with their debut album stars.
