Who are the Britain's Got Talent judges 2018? Panel revealed for new series

Britain's Got Talent 2018 judges revealed


The Britain's Got Talent 2018 judges have been revealed and there are - fortunately - no surprises.

The new series of BGT will be back on TV later this year with Simon Cowell, David Walliams, Alesha Dixon and Amanda Holden all returning for the 12th series.

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

"We're very different people but we're all up for a laugh and don't mind having the p*** taken out of us," Amanda said. "I adore Simon Cowell and Alesha Dixon is a very good friend of mine.

"David can be quite naughty so he brings the show to life."

Speaking to OK! magazine, she added: "It comes around so fast but it really is my favourite time of the year."

And don't worry - hosts Ant and Dec will also return to host the show as usual!

Open auditions for Britain's Got Talent 2018 have already taken place, with producers having travelled the country to host open try outs while online auditions have seen talented (and not so talented) wannabes upload their videos in a bid to show off their act in front of the judges.

This year show bosses have gone all out to try and encourage the best the country - and the world - has to offer as the show goes bigger and better than ever before.

The Britain's Got Talent judges' auditions 2018 kicked off this month in Blackpool before travelling to both London and Manchester.

As always, there was a live crowd at every venue acting as the show's fifth judge to help the panel make their decisions and making sure the judges know when they disagree with their choices!

Series 12 of BGT will air on ITV later this year.

It was pianist Tokio Myers who won the last series of BGT, and has since co-produced the Artists for Grenfell charity single in support of The London Community Foundation and released a debut album in November.

Tokio joins a long line of acts who have made it huge thanks to the show: BGT’s 10th winner Lance Corporal Richard Jones, the first magician to ever win the show in 2016, has been touring the country on his sold-out UK Tour Power of Imagination.

There's also the likes of Susan Boyle, who has sold more than 23 million records worldwide and Diversity, who have sold-out six nationwide tours and just completed their seventh UK tour Genesis.
