The Britain's Got Talent judges for 2019 remain the same with Simon back alongside Amanda Holden, David Walliams and Alesha Dixon for the 13th series.

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

Meanwhile, it's been reported that Ant and Dec will reunite to host the series after Ant stepped down last year from presenting the live shows.

A first trailer featuring the group premiered this month (March) on ITV. Set in a picturesque music hall, the new show opener sees the judges and hosts become part of a unique orchestral performance that’s jam-packed with surprises.

Ant and Dec don their finest tails as they turn conductors, Amanda Holden becomes a spellbinding magician’s assistant, David Walliams commands attention as he plays the cymbals, while a host of musicians try their best to avoid Alesha Dixon’s red buzzer and earn Simon Cowell’s coveted golden buzzer push.

Alongside the main show, Stephen Mulhern will return to front More Talent on ITV2.

Auditions for Britain's Got Talent 2019 took place across the country earlier this year with all sorts of acts going before the panel in the hope of getting a yes.

From the auditions, there have been reports of a 'Hero' police dog act and a shocking knife thrower.

Other contestants who have gone before the judges are rumoured to include a choir made up of war veterans and singer Leanne Mya, who reportedly brought the judges to tears with her audition.

Leanne stunned the theatre when she took to the stage and revealed she'd "survived Grenfell". Simon is quoted as telling her: “You should be very proud.... For everyone who lost their lives and had all this crap thrown at them, you’ve had the courage to come out here and pay tribute. You did something very special for them and for you.”
