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

We now know the official launch date for this year's Britain's Got Talent with ITV confirming just when the show will be back on TV.

And we don't have long to wait at all with Britain's Got Talent 2016 starting on Saturday, April 9 at 7PM with a bumper episode running to 8:25PM.

The show will then continue with its auditions throughout the rest of April and May on Saturday evenings with the live finals later in the Spring/Summer.

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: There are no changes with Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon and David Walliams all confirmed to be back again.

Ant and Dec will return to guide us through the auditions when they begin on TV and you can catch Stephan Mulhern on ITV2's More Talent.

Spoilers from the try outs have suggested that we could be seeing some quite strange acts as always ranging from a REAL 'singing' dog to a T-Rex puppet and a tortoise.

"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 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."
