Auditions are currently filming for the new series and some titbits have come out from the try outs.

According to The Sun newspaper, Simon hit the golden buzzer for a young duo.

However he supposedly was left unhappy after discovering one of the pair had already appeared on The Voice Kids last year.

A source told the tabloid: "It was a bit of a downer that he had already found fame on another talent show. Luckily, it was a different type of act, so fans of The Voice are unlikely to recognise him.”

Meanwhile, the first golden buzzer of Britain's Got Talent 2018 was given out by Amanda in January, doing so in the first week of auditions at Blackpool.

According to the Daily Mirror, Amanda hit her golden buzzer for a male singer who had a "SuBo moment."

In another audition, Welsh singer Reuben de Maid is said to have impressed the judges and won praise from Simon Cowell for his "amazing attitude".
