Amanda Holden will be back on Britain's Got Talent next year

Britain's Got Talent 2016 judges

Amanda Holden and Alesha Dixon will be back on Britain's Got Talent next year.

Amanda says she's all set to return for what will be an eleventh series before the current run has even concluded.

The veteran BGT judge spilled the news on Up Late With Rylan on Channel 5, explaining: “He [Simon] did put on his Twitter that he loves me and Alesha so much that he would like us back next year….we’ll be back!”

Amanda also spoke to Rylan about 10 years of Britain’s Got Talent, adding: “It was literally that [first] series after a couple days Paul Potts came on stage…Ten years ago you wouldn’t think they’re making a movie about him.”

Speaking earlier this year about her time on the ITV show, Amanda sad that she had seen Britain "get worse... but in a good way".

"All the mad stuff is just crazy and all the good stuff is so imaginative, so intelligent, so clever but not pretentious," she explained. "I don’t know what other talent shows are like in other areas of the world but I think ours feels like the best one because we still don’t take ourselves seriously and neither does the judging panel.

"I think that’s the bottom line, that’s how it works.

"We take the show seriously but none of us take ourselves seriously. I think the acts don’t either. There’s that self-deprecation underneath most of the acts where you can laugh and know it’s just a bit of a giggle really."

Amanda concluded: "I think as long as it stays like that, it will work. It’s the heart of Britain, I think."

Up Late With Rylan airs on Channel 5, Mondays-Thursdays while BGT continues this Saturday and Sunday on ITV.
