Britain's Got Talent 2017 has revealed its new look set for this year's live shows.

The BGT 2017 live shows will be in a brand new home this summer for the first time since the show premiered.

Fountain Studios in Wembley, London - where both of Simon Cowell's major talent contests had been based since they began - will be demolished to make way for a new housing development.

Britain's Got Talent has now moved to Elstree Studios in Hertfordshire for its eleventh series.

Elstree is home to the Big Brother house, and also hosts the likes of Strictly Come Dancing, Celebrity Juice, The Voice and Pointless.

And a new, bigger home means a new look studio, with a completely revamped look set unveiled live on Britain's Got More Talent last night.

The Britain's Got Talent 2017 live shows air from Monday, May 29 until Friday, June 2.

The semi-finals will air from 7:30PM on ITV with eight of the the final 40 Britain's Got Talent 2017 semi-finalists performing live in the hope of impressing the viewers at home and winning the all important public vote.

The two acts with the highest vote will then proceed onto the live final on Sunday 4th June with a chance of winning a life changing £250,000 and a spot at this year's Royal Variety Performance.

The ten finalists will then go head to head in the grand finale next SUNDAY night, June 4.

And in an additional twist, at the end of the week there will be a judges wildcard allowing Simon, Amanda, Alesha and David, to select one act of their choosing to also go through to the live final.

Meanwhile, looking ahead to the autumn, The X Factor will not be able to join its sister show at Elstree - because arch rival Strictly Come Dancing has already booked the space.

Instead, it will move to LH2 Studios, a production facility in Acton, London which hosted The Voice UK live shows on ITV this year.
