PICTURES! Britain's Got Talent 2013 judges launch new series

Britain's Got Talent 2013 starts this weekend and the show's judges and hosts were in London today to launch the new series.

Simon Cowell, David Walliams, Alesha Dixon and Amanda Holden are all back on the BGT panel ready to start yet another talent search of the UK.

Although busy David had to miss today's event in Trafalgar Square due to filming.

The undisputed kings of British TV Ant and Dec were also on hand, as they return as hosts to guide viewers through the action from an amazing array of acts.

Simon Cowell and his fellow judges provide entertainment in equal measure with laughter, tears, bickering and bromance as they decide if each performer has what it takes to make it through the auditions for a coveted spot in the live semi-finals and the chance to perform at The Royal Variety Performance, as well as a huge £500,000 prize.

The competition is open to all performers of any age and with any talent. This year’s Britain’s Got Talent is packed full of more variety than ever before with comedians and contortionists, dancers and drag acts and acrobats and animals all set to shine. All the acts need is the skill that they believe will both impress the judges and entertain the nation.

Britain's Got Talent starts 7PM this Saturday night on ITV.
