Britain's Got Talent announcement: Could there be wildcard in the final?

Simon cowell

Simon Cowell teased on last night's latest Britain’s Got Talent 2011 semi-final that tonight (Thursday) he would make a special announcement about the show. Since then rumours have been wife - would there be a new judge? Could Dec really be getting the sack?! Unfortunately the truth seems to be a lot less interesting.

While nothing is confirmed until tonight's show - starting at 7:30PM on ITV1 - it is currently understood that the final episode of the show on Saturday night will see at least one 'wildcard' entry into the competition. The act, which will be one of the semi-finals who failed to win either the public or judges votes, will be able to compete for the top prize.

Simon is quoted as saying: "This is the one thing I am allowed to do on the show this year. I hope it will be popular and it’s the right thing to do.”

We're not too sure what the point is - i the act wasn't popular enough to get through in the first place then they've clearly no chance of winning!

Find out all the details at 7:30PM tonight on ITV1.
