What's the prize?

This year the winner of Britain's Got Talent will get an extra surprise on top of their usual 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."

“Simon has something up his sleeve and he hasn’t told any of us,” Alesha added. “Apparently whoever wins is getting something very special this year in addition to the prize money. “

"We are all making guesses. Are they going to get their own show? Are they going to get a special guest come on with them?”

Any spoilers from the auditions?

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

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

"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," Simon said.

Meanwhile Alesha has claimed that this year's BGT could be the most dangerous yet. "There have been a few [acts] where I've felt a bit queasy, where I've turned around because I couldn't look at the stage," she said. "It makes incredible entertainment but it's like watching a horror film.'

Alesha added: "It's stuff with swords. I'll just say ... swords."
