Got To Dance 2013 auditions get tougher as hopefuls now require three gold stars

Got To DanceBosses of Sky1 talent contest Got To Dance have tweaked its auditions format for 2013, with hopefuls now requiring three gold stars to progress.

In the first three series, acts have only needed backing from two out of the three judges to be in with a chance of making the live shows.

However, now the show - which prides itself on finding Britain and Ireland's best dancers - has been made tougher, as they have to get a unanimous verdict to get one step closer to the £250,000 grand prize.

This should mean that a smaller pool of contestants will make the judges' shortlist, which has previously consisted of around 200 auditionees.

Diversity leader Ashley Banjo and former Pussycat Doll Kimberly Wyatt return to the panel this year, with JLS frontman Aston Merrygold replacing Adam Garcia, who has left due to other commitments.

The Davina McCall-hosted show will start its fourth run on January 6th, with a 'warm up' special airing this Sunday at 4.00pm on Sky1 (HD).
