Britain's Got Talent 2018 spoilers

You can meet all the contestants on Britain's Got Talent tonight here as auditions enter their second week.

Auditions for the new series filmed earlier this year 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."

As well as the usual singers and dancers there was also a plate smashing routine that ended in chaos and a moving performance from a victim of the Manchester Arena bombing.

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".
