Today is D Day for the successful Britain’s Got Talent 2014 auditionees, as the judges decided who would be making the live shows.

Thousands applied and auditioned for the new series, which will see one act walk away with a massive £250,000 cash prize in a grand final.

There were auditions in Cardiff, London, Manchester, Birmingham and Glasgow throughout January and February with all sorts of acts going before the panel in the hope of getting a yes.

Only a few hundred have made the cut after showing off their talents in front of this year's Britain's Got Talent judges, Simon Cowell, Alesha Dixon, David Walliams and Amanda Holden.

But with only limited spaces in the live shows, the panel today have to decide who to cut and who to keep.

David Walliams tweeted yesterday afternoon: "I will be with my @SimonCowell later for the #BGT deliberation day. I am hoping to see his little man. And also his baby."

Amanda Holden later wrote online: "Had a wonderful day at BGT. Met little Eric. He is Gorgeous And @simoncowell a natural x"

And Alesha Dixon said: "#BGT2014 Deliberations done! Been a great day! Next..launching my first fragrance at Westfield 2moz at @fragranceshop! So need some sleep!"

Hosts Ant and Dec added: “Today, judges decide on and reveal the semi finalists. On our way to chat to the acts”

Auditions for Britain’s Got Talent 2014 will air on ITV very soon, with David tweeting that the launch date was currently set for April.

Meanwhile the BGT live show finalists short list will be revealed in May, with the live shows reportedly set for the first week of June.
