Britain's Got Talent 2012 is back this weekend and here the first pictures from the auditions! As you can probably guess, there's no shortage of variety on stage as the new series sees everything from dancing dogs to mind-blowing contortionists!

Amongst the hopefuls on this year's show are singing duo Gerald and Joanne, contortionist Pixie Le Knot and song and dance trio Mitsotu.

There's also your typical bunch of wacky hopefuls, including a drag queen going by the name of Jesus!

Britain's Got Talent hosts Ant and Dec were shocked by the range of "talent" that turned out at auditions earlier this year.

"The British public constantly surprise you with weird and wonderful things," the pair said ahead of Saturday's premiere. “You think: ‘A, why? and B, how did you even discover you can do that?’”

Fortunately there are a few gems amongst the hopeless wananbes, including guitarist Marc, dancers the Remix Monkeys and some bands.

Ant revealed: "We've had some really good bands, and boybands as well which is great for BGT as they rarely audition."
