The Voice UK

The launch of Britain's Got Talent 2012 will clash with the start of The Voice UK on Saturday March 24, it has been confirmed today.

Both ITV and BBC One this afternoon finalised their schedules for the Saturday night, and despite last minute changes, the two reality shows will still overlap by 20 minutes.

The BBC will air the first ever Voice episode from 7PM-8:20PM, having moved the show back 15 minutes and added an extra five minutes to its running time.

ITV meanwhile have backed off slightly from their competitive scheduling, which originally had the BGT airing at 7:30PM, and have confirmed that Britain's Got Talent will air from 8PM to 9:20PM.
