The one and only, Britain’s Got Talent, is back and celebrating ten triumphant years of talent.
 
The dream team of judges - Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon and David Walliams - once again take their places on the panel, in search of the most astonishing and exhilarating talent around. They are joined by the nation’s favourite TV duo, Ant & Dec, who will be on hand to encourage, congratulate and commiserate the acts whilst guiding the audience through the auditions. 
 
Together they have scoured the country looking for a winning act who can entertain the nation and capture the hearts and imaginations of the Great British public. 
 
Across the series, the acts set to entertain and amuse are a dancing polar bear, a one-man band on stilts, an orchestra with a difference and the most dangerous act we have ever seen.  There will also be puppetry and archery with a difference, the world’s fastest tortoise and a magician brave enough to smash Simon’s phone... 
 
All four judges and Ant & Dec will also have the opportunity to give the act they think has that extra special something an automatic place in the live semi-finals with the use of their special Golden Buzzer. 
 
With thousands of people applying, viewers can expect to be amazed and astounded by the remarkable line-up of acts competing to be crowned this year’s winner, securing an incredible £250,000 and the opportunity to perform at the Royal Variety Performance 2016.
 
The past decade has seen some of the most exciting and interesting winners from Paul Potts to Diversity, Ashleigh & Pudsey to Attraction.  And it’s not only the winners who have delivered some of our most memorable moments on television; there was singer Susan Boyle, comedian Jack Carroll, magician Darcy Oake and of course, the dog that hypnotised Simon - to name a few. This year’s series is sure to provide even more must see moments.
