Viewers will see panellist Amanda Holden reveal unseen aerial acrobatic skills and her fellow judge Alesha Dixon will appear to be a contortionist.

Presenters Ant and Dec are also filmed with a few moves of their own as they apparently hula-hoop spin plates.

The film will be screened for the first time tonight during an ad break for Saturday Night Takeaway, with BGT returning midway through next month, although ITV bosses have not yet announced a date.

ITV promo chief Oscar Cariss said: "We worked closely with the judges and Ant and Dec allowing them to put their unique stamp on what we had planned for them, making it a hugely enjoyable experience."

The Britain's Got Talent promo trailer will play at 7pm tonight on ITV.
