Britain's Got Talent

The Britain's Got Talent 2013 open audition dates have been revealed.

The UK series is returning for a seventh year and will once again be travelling the UK on the hunt for talent to put before the judges.

Britain's Got Talent 2012 earlier this year saw Ashleigh & Pudsey crowned winners at the glittering final in May. Watched by over 13 million viewers, the final was one of the live entertainment moments of the year with acts like Ashleigh & Pudsey, Jonathan & Charlotte, Only Boys Aloudand the Loveable Rogues making it one of the best and most talked about series of Britain's Got Talent ever.

The BGT team will be heading off to London, Birmingham, Glasgow, Belfast, Cardiff, Manchester and for the first time ever, Sheffield to hold open auditions.

Anything goes from dance troupes to acrobats, magicians to comedians and dancing dogs to mind-blowing contortionists. The show is open to any performer of any age, from any background, with any talent - all they need is a skill and star quality which they think will impress the Judges.

Sam Donnelly, Executive Producer, Britain's Got Talent, commented: "Britain's Got Talent is a show like no other and after a fantastic series in 2012 we want to make sure that our next series is packed to the rafters with the very best variety talent around too. We have high hopes for all the cities and we’re determined to find even more talent than ever before.”
