BRITAIN’S Got Talent is back on ITV tonight with a brand new batch of weird and wonderful performers hoping to impress the judges.
Here’s what you need to know about the new series of Simon Cowell’s iconic talent show.
When is Britain’s Got Talent on TV?
Britain’s Got Talent is back on TV tonight (April 27) at 8pm on ITV.
The hit talent show is currently in the audition stage.
It will repeat every Saturday at the same time.
The running time of the family-friendly show is around an hour and a half.

Who are the BGT judges in 2019?
Simon Cowell returned to the judging panel once again as head judge.
Joining him for another year are David Walliams, Amanda Holden and Alesha Dixon.
However, David has hinted that 2019 may be his last year as a judge.
He joined the show in 2012 along with Alesha.
Are Ant and Dec hosting it?
Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly have hosted the programme since its inception.
However, in 2018 Ant missed hosting the live shows of BGT after he was convicted of drink-driving.
But in December 2018 The Sun exclusively revealed that the duo would next be seen on the TV together for Britain’s Got Talent in 2019.
Ant started filming the auditions for BGT in January 2019 and will be back hosting the live shows alongside Declan Donnelly in May and June.
In late January, it was revealed that Ant and Dec hit their Golden Buzzer.
In a tweet, they said: “We hit our @BGT Golden Buzzer today. It’s a Real good un. You’ll have to wait to see who it is tho… #BGT”
How do I get tickets to Britain’s Got Talent 2019?
Unfortunately, you won’t be able to attend the auditions as filming wrapped in February.
However you will be able to get tickets to the live show – although they will be in high demand.
All tickets are available free via the website Applause Store, and it’s a good idea to register now so you’ll be notified straight away when the semi-finals start.
While all seats are free, audiences are chosen on a first come, first served basis, so it’s best to arrive early on the day itself if you’re lucky enough to get tickets.
