Britain's Got Talent 2012 and The Voice UK are still set to clash when they both launch on March 24, despite movement in the schedules.

The finalised timings for both shows will be confirmed later today, but as it stands both reality shows are set to clash for 50 minutes, with The Voice UK getting a 30-minute head start on BBCBC One.

The Voice UK was yesterday moved back to 7PM, in an attempt to avoid a clash with Britain's Got Talent, originally scheduled for 7:45PM. However ITV quickly hit back, and moved BGT back by 15 minutes as well, with the latest series now set to start at 7:30PM on the Saturday.

The spoiler tactics by ITV haven't gone unnoticed, with a source at the Beeb telling the Guardian this week: "It is disappointing they chose to launch Britain's Got Talent on the same day as us.

"To not even meet us halfway on avoiding any sort of overlap is incredibly competitive."
