Amanda Holden found herself 'replaced' at the first round of Britain's Got Talent 2017 auditions yesterday.

The show's judges reunited this week for the start of filming of the new series.

The Britain's Got Talent judges for 2017 remain the same with Simon Cowell, David Walliams, Alesha Dixon and Amanda all returning for the 11th series.

The line up of judges are unchanged for a fifth year having proved a hit since first coming together in 2012.

And don't worry - hosts Ant and Dec will also return to front the show as usual, having previously signed a new three year deal as presenters.

But although there are officially no changes, Amanda found herself 'replaced' on the first day of auditions after Simon decided to get a granny from the crowd to take over her role.

He said (via the Daily Mirror newspaper): "I have an announcement to make. How many years have you been with us Amanda?

"Look, everything has to end eventually, we’ll do this season together but people have to be replaced.”

The newspaper also reveals that among the first hopefuls to audition for the series was a singing ROBOT act.
