The Britain’s Got Talent 2017 start date has been confirmed for April 15.

If you've been ditching to know just when Britain's Got Talent is back on TV, we now know the new series will return on Saturday night, April 15 at 8PM, ITV today announced.

It comes just two weeks after ITV's latest talent show The Voice UK came to an end.

When does Britain's Got Talent 2017 start?

Simon Cowell, David Walliams, Alesha Dixon and Amanda Holden will all be back on the panel this year plus of course hosts Ant and Dec.

Acts set to appear on this year's BGT are reported to include everything from dancing robots to a giant sausage eating dog.

And of course there are the usual singers, dance groups and variety acts.

This year's BGT auditions will again see the return of the Golden Buzzer twist.

The change to the auditions stage, first made in 2014, sees a fifth, golden buzzer added right in the centre of the judges’ desk.

Pressing the special buzzer will see the act on stage sent immediately through to the live shows regardless of what the other judges think.

The act will win a guaranteed place in the live shows, with lights, music and of course glitter showering the stage in celebration.

Each of the judges - plus hosts Ant and Dec - can hit the golden buzzer once during the auditions.
