Who are the Britain's Got Talent judges 2017? Panel revealed for new series

Britain's Got Talent 2017 judges revealed


The Britain's Got Talent 2017 judges have been revealed and there are - fortunately - no surprises.

The new series of BGT will begin on TV later this year with Simon Cowell, David Walliams, Alesha Dixon and Amanda Holden all returning for the 11th series.

The line up of judges remain unchanged for a fifth year having proved a hit since first coming together in 2012.

And don't worry - hosts Ant and Dec will also return to host the show as usual!

Open auditions for Britain's Got Talent 2017 have already taken place, with producers having travelled the country to host open try outs while online auditions have seen talented (and not so talented) wannabes upload their videos in a bid to show off their act in front of the judges.

This year show bosses have gone all out to try and encourage the best the country - and the world - has to offer as the show goes bigger and better than ever before.

But after 10 years, finding something never seen before gets harder each series.

Executive producer Clair Breen admitted: “It gets 100% harder each year. The biggest brief is ‘Find something that we have not seen before’ or ‘Get something we have seen and we can put a twist on it’.

“It is really tough as there are tons of talent shows. It is not easily done.”

The Britain's Got Talent judges' auditions 2017 kick off this week (January 18) in Blackpool before travelling to both London, Manchester and Birmingham.

As always, there will be a live crowd at every venue acting as the show's fifth judge to help the panel make their decisions and making sure the judges know when they disagree with their choices!

Meanwhile if you want to audition there is STILL TIME (as we write this!), visit the BGT application website HERE on how to try out. Britain's Got Talent 2017 auditions will close on the 10th February 2017 at 23:59 GMT

When does Britain's Got Talent 2017 start on TV?

Britain's Got Talent 2017 will air on ITV later this year.

Generally the show returns to TV on the second Saturday of April although an exact start date won't be officially confirmed for a while yet.
