BGT series one winner and multi-platinum selling artist Paul Potts appears in the first episode of the new 'Olympics of Talent' this evening.

Britain's Got Talent: The Champions will see acts from the past 13 years go head to head with the best Got Talent acts from around the world.

The acts will compete in this supersized version of BGT, all trying to be crowned the ultimate champion and walk away with the cash prize and coveted Champions Trophy.

Paul rose to fame on BGT on Series 1 in 2007, becoming the show's first ever winner.

But will he make it through to the final?

He and the other acts are performing for Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon and David Walliams who return to the judging panel as they take their seat ready to be impressed by a whole host of global talent.

Joining them will also be the nation’s favourite presenting duo, Ant and Dec.

Each week, two acts make it through to the grand finale – the first is a Golden Buzzer act chosen by one of the judges or Ant and Dec while the second is voted through by superfans in the arena audience.

Also taking part in this week's first episode are BGT series 10 stars. Boogie Storm, 2012 Britain's Got Talent winners, dog act Ashleigh and Sully, and singer Connie Talbot, who first appeared on Britain's Got Talent when she was six years old.
