Britain's Got Talent to get its own all star The Champions series

Britain's Got Talent 2019

Britain's Got Talent is set to air its own all star The Champions series following the success of the American show.

America's Got Talent: The Champions has been airing in the States - and on Netflix here in the UK - over the past month.

The brand new show features acts from Got Talent series across the world, competing together to be crowned the ultimate champion.

Simon this week unveiled his plan to bring the show to the UK for Britain's Got Talent.

"So we’ve now got AGT and we’ve got AGT Champions. That was a very good change so there will be a BGT Champions," Simon told The Sun newspaper. "We are 100 per cent not resting on our laurels."

Precise details about the show have not been confirmed, including whether it will air this year or next.

Currently, Simon is filming the main series of Britain's Got Talent with David Walliams, Amanda Holden and Alesha Dixon and hosts Ant and Dec.

Meanwhile, America's Got Talent: The Champions will conclude its premiere season next week.

Monday's latest episode saw the final round of performances, featuring Britain's Got Talent stars Susan Boyle and Paul Potts.

Joining the pair in the final are singer Kechi Okwuchi, Extreme Knife Throwers Deadly Games, Opera/Rock Singer Cristina Ramos, singer Brian Justin Crum, singer Angelica Hale and comedian Preacher Lawson.

Other acts who competed on behalf of Britain's Got Talent but did not make the final included Dancing Dog Act Ashleigh and Sully, Shadow Theatre group Attraction, Extreme Rollerskating Duo Billy & Emily England, mini magician Issy Simpson and Illusionist Darcy Oake.

Also going out in the heats were reigning BGT winner, comedian Lost Voice Guy, dancers Light Balance, pianist Tokio Myers and sword swallower Alex Magala.

The show airs on NBC in the States on Mondays while UK viewers can watch on Netflix with new episodes added Wednesdays.
