Britain's Got Talent 2013: Ant and Dec don't want another singer winning

Ant and Dec's Saturday night Takeaway

Britain's Got Talent 2013 hosts Ant and Dec have said they don't want a singer to win this year's show.

Speaking backstage at auditions in London, the pair revealed they were hoping for a more unique talent to wow the judges this time around.

In the six series of the show so far, only one winner hasn't been a singer or dance act, and that was last year's champs Ashley and Pudsey.

Ant and Dec are hoping for another variety winner again, and are hoping for someone who makes them laugh.

Asked who he wanted to win, Dec explained: "A comic or comedy troupe... or a magic act!

"Someone with a bit of fun, someone with some jokes or laughter, and entertainment, of course. We've had singers and dancers win in the past, we need an entertainment performer."

Ant added: "Or a talking dog."

BGT Amanda Holden meanwhile echoed the pair's thoughts, saying: “I want a comedian. It’s a tough genre and we don’t get many of them. That’s what I’m hoping for.”

And she told us: "I don’t think we’re going to get any dog acts this year. I think we can top it. I think every year we’ve managed to top ourselves."

Meanwhile, it's going to be a busy year for Ant and Dec, who are also bringing back their own Saturday night series, Ant and Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway.

The show will return to ITV this month, and here's a quick look at the pair filming a trailer for the show below...
