When does Britain's Got Talent 2017 start on TV?

ITV has confirmed the new series of Britain's Got Talent will start tonight with the air date set for the Easter weekend.

The first episode of BGT 2017 will start on Saturday, April 15 at 8PM on ITV and run until 9:25PM.

Then over on ITV2, More Talent with Stephen Mulhern will be back for an extra dose of BGT goodness.

Open auditions for Britain's Got Talent 2017 have already taken place, with producers having travelled the country to host open try outs while online auditions have seen talented (and not so talented) wannabes upload their videos in a bid to show off their act in front of the judges.

This year show bosses have gone all out to try and encourage the best the country - and the world - has to offer as the show goes bigger and better than ever before.


The Britain's Got Talent judges' auditions 2017 kicked off at the start of the year (January 18) in Blackpool before travelling to both London, Manchester and Birmingham.

As always, there will be a live crowd at every venue acting as the show's fifth judge to help the panel make their decisions and making sure the judges know when they disagree with their choices!
