Britain's Got Talent 2013 to get a touch of Geordie Shore

Britain's Got Talent 2013

Britain's Got Talent 2013 will return to our screens later this month and they could get a taste of Geordie Shore.

This year will see the show get a new executive producer in the form of Amelia Brown, who previously worked on MTV's Geordie Shore.

We're hoping she doesn't bring many ideas from the lewd MTV series over to BGT.

It turns out that Amelia is something of a Who's Who in reality telly production, having previously worked on the X Factor, Xtra Factor, X Factor USA, America's Got Talent, Big Brother and Celebrity Big Brother.

Blimey.

Auditions for the new series kick off next week in Cardiff with all four of last year's judges returning.

Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden along with new panelists Alesha Dixon and David Walliams will kick off this year's talent search in Wales from January 16.

Speaking about the new series, Simon Cowell said: “I loved doing the show last year, the new panel worked really well and I’m very happy they have all agreed to come back. Last year was a special year for talent and I hope that in 2013, off the back of an amazing year for Britain, we find another global star.”

Amanda Holden added: “I’m thrilled to be back on Britain’s Got Talent. It’s the best fun ever and I love it! I’m not even going to try to be cool about the fact that I’m back! I’m over the moon!”

Meanwhile Alesha Dixon said she was happy to be back for her second series.

She said: “We had an incredible series in what has been a fantastic year for Great Britain, the talent blew us all away and I can’t wait to see what delights neat year brings.”
