Connie Talbot is set to return to Britain's Got Talent for its all star Champions series.

Britain's Got Talent: The Champions will air on ITV later this year.

The special season will feature acts from the past 13 series of Britain's Got Talent returning to the stage, competing to be crowned the ultimate champion.

They'll compete head to head with not only one another but also against other acts from Got Talent shows from the world.

According to The Sun newspaper, one act that is set for a return is singer Connie Talbot.

The singer wowed us all more than a decade ago now when she was an adorable six year old.

Auditioning for judges including Simon Cowell during the first ever series of BGT, Connie gave a stronger performance than many of those older and more experience have failed to match even to this day.

Simon told Connie she was "fantastic" after reducing Amanda Holden to tears with a cover of Over The Rainbow.

Now 18, Connie is reportedly lined up for the Champions series.

A source said: "Everyone's really excited that Connie has signed on the dotted line. She's so talented and bosses can't wait to see her back on the stage.

"It'll be a real thrill for the audience watching her as she's still got her incredible voice. It'll be a real trip down memory lane for long-time fans of the show."

Following BGT, Connie released a number of albums after signing a record deal.

Other acts who have reportedly signed up include Series 1 champ Paul Potts, Susan Boyle, Stavros Flatley and 2012 Britain's Got Talent winner Ashleigh Butler. Ashleigh secured victory as dog act Ashleigh and Pudsey, the first animal act to win BGT. Following the Pudsey’s sad passing two years ago, she now performs with new dog, Sully.

More rumours suggest that George Sampson, who won the second series in 2008, together with comedians Daliso Chaponda, Jack Carroll and Lost Voice Guy could all be back.

2014 winners Collabro and former golden buzzer acts Merseygirls and Boogie Storm are all also rumoured to be returning.

The show will air on ITV in the autumn.
