Alesha Dixon is hoping for a comedian to win Britain's Got Talent 2017.

Auditions for next year's series kick off next month ahead of the show returning to TV in the Spring on ITV.

And after a magician won for the first time last year, Alesha is hoping this time around it'll be a comic that tops the public polls.

It's one of the few types of acts to have never won, although a few have come close.

Alesha said: "I'd like a good stand up comedian to merge. I'm always rooting for that.

"We had Jack Carroll, who was great, and a magician won last year, which was brilliant.

"I like variety, and I ever want tit to be predictable."

Alesha is expected to return to the BGT panel alongside Simon Cowell, David Walliams and Amanda Holden for what will be their seventh year together.

Hosting the show will of course be Ant and Dec, who recently signed a new deal to continue fronting the series.

Ant and Dec added: “We are absolutely delighted to be extending our relationship with ITV, to continue on the three shows we love as well as exploring further opportunities both in front of and behind the camera.

"This deal will take us past the 20-year mark with ITV and we couldn't be happier.”

ITV previously confirmed at least a further three series of BGT and sister show The X Factor, taking both shows up to 2020.
