The first line up of contestants for tonight's (Monday) Britain's Got Talent 2018's semi-final have been revealed.

The BGT 2018 semi-finalists were unveiled by the judges on Saturday and in true form the usual cliches were out in force.

"You're going home... to work on your acts," David Walliams told one group.

After thousands applied and hundreds auditioned for the judges all around the UK, the lucky few who received three or more yeses have now been whittled down to the final 35 acts who will be joining the five golden buzzers.

The final 40 will now perform in the Britain’s Got Talent live semi- finals in the hope of winning the public vote and securing an all-important place in the live grand final and the chance of winning a life changing £250,000 and a coveted spot at the Royal Variety Performance.
