Britain's Got Talent judges set to all return next year... if they want to

Britain's Got Talent 2017 judges

Simon Cowell has invited David Walliams, Alesha Dixon and Amanda Holden back to Britain's Got Talent next year.

The judging line up has proved one of the show's most popular and while sister show The X Factor sees yet another big shake up, BGT is set to stay the same for a sixth year.

With more than 12 million viewers tuning in every week, it seems obvious to keep what is clearly working.

Simon told Closer magazine this week: “I hate to admit it, but David is very welcome back next year. The whole panel is!

“We all like being on the show, and that’s what’s most important.”

The music mogul also revealed he was so pleased by the panel that there was a plan to get them on The X Factor.

“We actually even considered transferring them all on to X Factor at one point, but their egos, if I ever suggested it, would be unbearable!" said Simon.

Speaking about the possibility of coming back next year, Amanda said: "I think if I have the invitation to come back then I would but if I don’t then ten years is a fantastic number to end on."

And Alesha added: "I don’t know. Simon tweeted it, it was very funny, but I can never presume anything. That’s how I live my life. I live it each month to each month, I don’t really worry about next year.

"If they want me back then I would love to do it because I have always said that as long as I am enjoying something long may it continue. It’s one of the best shows on television and I am having a ball, so I wouldn’t want that to end."
