Sky1 has confirmed the Got To Dance 2014 live shows will air stripped across five days at the end of August.

The talent contest is due to hit our screens on Saturday 9th August for its fifth series, which will feature a revamped format.

This year, contestants will still require three gold stars from judges Ashley Banjo, Kimberly Wyatt and Adam Garcia to make it on to their shortlist.

However, rather than whittle down the shortlist, the trio will now each form a team of six acts to mentor throughout the competition, culminating in a week of supersized live shows.

According to the Sky Tickets website, these begin with semi-finals on Monday 25th, Tuesday 26th and Wednesday 27th August - each of which will showcase a different judge's team.

After a one-day break, the series will then reach its spectacular conclusion on Friday 29th August, when the public's favourite acts will go head-to-head to take home the huge £250,000 cash prize.

Unlike previous series - when only the grand finals took place in an arena - all of the live shows will unfold in front of a 6,000-strong audience at London's Earls Court 2.

The first two episodes of Got To Dance 2014 will air on Saturday 9th August and Sunday 10th August at 8.00pm on Sky1 HD.
