Britain's Got Talent 2019

The new series of Britain's Got Talent 2016 is back on TV soon, with a start date set for April.

The start date for this year's Britain's Got Talent has been confirmed now for Saturday, April 9 at 7PM.

The first round of auditions will air until 8:25PM with a bumper opening episode.

It will be the tenth series of the show and there's no need to wonder who's on the Britain's Got Talent panel this year with no changes as Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon and David Walliams all return once again.

Ant and Dec are also of course back to guide us through the auditions when they do eventually begin on TV.

Spoilers from the try outs have suggested that we could be seeing some quite strange acts as always including a REAL 'singing' dog.

There's been a T-Rex puppet and a tortoise as the auditions continue to surprise and amaze.

Show boss Simon has teased some surprises for the landmark series.

"From what I've seen of what the show's going to look like, I think it's going to feel fun. A big celebration of it's ten year past," he said, adding that we should expect some comebacks.

But the likes of Kelly Book needn't get excited, with Simon quickly clarifying he was talking about previous acts rather former judges.

"Got to bring back some big moments from over the years, and try and make it as surprising as possible," Si explained. "I would say probably not past judges, but probably yes past acts."

Meanwhile the winner of Britain's Got Talent will get an extra surprise on top of their spot at the Royal Variety Show and £250,000 cash prize.

Simon revealed: "We have a special surprise for the winner. It's priceless, worth a lot of money, and we're going to do it for the 10th series."
