Neighbours' Bonnie Anderson is apparently joining Britain's Got Talent: The Champions - twelve years after winning the Australian version.

The ITV talent contest's new spin-off involves fan-favourite former contestants returning to compete for ultimate glory - but they're not the only contenders.

Successful acts from other global adaptations of the Got Talent format will also battle to take the crown.

According to The Sun, singer and actress Bonnie will be among the international participants.

The 24-year-old is already known in the UK for playing Bea Nilsson in Aussie soap Neighbours.

However, her entertainment career began in 2007 when she won the first series of Australia's Got Talent, aged just 12.

"Bonnie is going to add some glamour to the show," a mole told the newspaper.

"She’s more than capable for doing well in the competition, especially with Neighbours fans on her side."

Aside from Neighbours, Bonnie has released a string of singles down under and toured with Olly Murs.

Several BGT stars have been rumoured for comebacks on the Champions edition.

Former winners Paul Potts, Ashleigh Butler, Collabro and Lost Voice Guy are reportedly aiming to claim victory for a second time.

Their rivals could include Golden Buzzer acts Daliso Chaponda and Boogie Storm, and iconic dance duo Stavros Flatley.

The line-up of international acts is not as clear, although America's Got Talent finalist Vicki Barbolak claims she'll be appearing.

The comedian recently wrote in a now-deleted Twitter post: "So excited and grateful to be jumping over the pond to compete in BGT The Champions!

"It’s my dream coming true to do stand up in the UK!"

Meanwhile, question marks are now hanging over Susan Boyle's involvement.

Bosses confirmed the Scottish singer would be taking part, but her busy schedule may force her to pull out.

Britain's Got Talent: The Champions begins filming at Wembley Arena later this week.

It is due to air later this year, although ITV is yet to reveal exact scheduling plans.
