PICTURES! Britain's Got Talent 2014 judges start auditions in Belfast

The Britain’s Got Talent 2014 judges hit Belfast today for the first of this year's auditions.

Yes, it's that time of year already.

Amanda Holden, David Walliams, Simon Cowell and Alesha Dixon arrived at the Waterfront Hall in Northern Ireland for the first time in the show's history.

Speaking ahead of filming today, a spokesperson for the show said: "Given the success of Irish talent last year including Jordan O’Keefe we decided to come back for the Judges Auditions in the hope of finding even more great talent."

On what turned out to be a very wet red carpet this afternoon the judges looked more glam than ever, posing for photos with fans before heading inside to kick off auditions.

Although as usual, Simon Cowell kept everyone waiting.

Tweeting from backstage, the music mogul hinted that this year's auditions were already seeing all sorts of acts.

"Hello. I am in Belfast. First day of britains got talent. Have just seen a cat backstage trying to play the guitar!" he wrote online.

But David Walliams snapped back: "Can you get a bloody move on? It's three o'clock in the afternoon!"

Britain's Got Talent 2014 will air on ITV in the Spring.
