When is Britain’s Got Talent back?
Viewers can tune into Britain’s Got Talent: Acts That Stormed the World on Sunday, 21st March at 1:40pm.
ITV confirmed on 29th January 2021 that the 15th season won’t air in 2021, and has been pushed back a year.
A statement from BGT, obtained by RadioTimes.com, read: “Despite everyone at ITV, Thames and Syco doing their best to make it happen, and with our absolute priority of safeguarding the well-being and health of every person involved in the programme from judges, hosts and contestants to all of the crew and audience, the decision has been made to – unfortunately – move the record and broadcast of the 15thseries of Britain’s Got Talent to 2022.
“BGT is known for its diversity of talent with big dance groups, wonderful choirs and lavish orchestras at its heart, and it has become clear that not only is it not possible to film auditions with these types of acts in a secure way but also that they are not able to adequately rehearse and prepare safely. Safety has to come first and, as a result, the recording of the show can’t currently go ahead as planned.”
With that in mind, we can expect to see season 15 air on ITV around April 2022, as per previous years.
Who are the contestants on Britain’s Got Talent season 15?
We won’t know which contestants are taking part in Britain’s Got Talent 2022 until the show airs next year.

BGT hopefuls can audition by sending in a video or auditioning via WhatsApp.
Will Simon Cowell be back for Britain’s Got Talent season 15?
Simon Cowell was missing from this the Britain’s Got Talent live shows this year after breaking his bike accident – however, it looks as though the longtime judge will be back for the show’s 2021 series.
While ITV has not confirmed Cowell’s return, his fellow judge Amanda Holden recently told ITV’s Loose Women that he would be judging the upcoming series.
“Mr Cowell is coming back. I spoke to him on the phone a few weeks ago and he feels on top of the world and apparently he looks fantastic as well,” she said.
“So he’ll be back for the new season which we’re filming in January. I can’t wait for it.”
Who are the judges on Britain’s Got Talent season 15?
Actress Amanda Holden, singer Alesha Dixon, comedian David Walliams and show creator Simon Cowell are expected to return to the Britain’s Got Talent judging panel for the 2021 series.
While Diversity’s Ashley Banjo filled in for Cowell in the 2020 live shows and for the Christmas special, but it’s unknown whether he’ll be officially joining the panel as a fifth judge or leaving the show.
Who won Britain’s Got Talent 2020?
Comedian and musician Jon Courtenay won series 14 of Britain’s Got Talent, with sign-language choir Sign Along With Us and comedian Steve Royle placing second and third respectively.Britain’s Got Talent returns to ITV in 2022. If you’re looking for more to watch check out our TV guide.
Britain's Got Talent cancelled for 2021 due to coronavirus
Britain's Got Talent will not take place in 2021, due to the coronavirus pandemic.
ITV said it was pulling the show - hosted by Ant and Dec with judges Simon Cowell, Alesha Dixon, Amanda Holden and David Walliams - in order to safeguard "the wellbeing and health of every person involved in the programme".
Live COVID updates from the UK and around the world
Hundreds of people work behind the scenes of the Britain's Got Talent(BGT) audition shows, which often feature large group acts. Difficulties in filming during the COVID-19 pandemic are compounded as contestants travel from all over the UK and sometimes abroad.
Earlier this month, ITV announced filming on the 15th series was being postponed due to the pandemic restrictions, and talks about whether or not it could go ahead have been taking place this week.
However, it has now confirmed the next recording and broadcast for the show, which is produced by Thames and Cowell's Syco, will not take place until 2022.
A spokesperson said: "Despite everyone at ITV, Thames and Syco doing their best to make it happen, and with our absolute priority of safeguarding the wellbeing and health of every person involved in the programme, from judges, hosts and contestants to all of the crew and audience, the decision has been made to, unfortunately, move the record and broadcast of the 15th series of Britain's Got Talent to 2022.

"BGT is known for its diversity of talent with big dance groups, wonderful choirs and lavish orchestras at its heart, and it has become clear that not only is it not possible to film auditions with these types of acts in a secure way but also that they are not able to adequately rehearse and prepare safely.
"Safety has to come first and, as a result, the recording of the show can't currently go ahead as planned."
It is now unlikely the talent show will return to TV screens before spring next year.

Earlier this week, Heart Radio breakfast presenter Holden said on her show that discussions on how to safely go ahead with the series had been held, as producers were "keen not to let anyone down".
However, she said it would not work without the live audience - the "fifth judge" - saying: "We need the people behind us."
While auditions for the 2020 series were held before the pandemic took hold in the UK, the live shows were postponed before the series was broadcast in September.
In October, production was halted on a Christmas special after crew members tested positive for COVID-19.
The cancellation of the 2021 series comes after further delays for sets already this year, with filming on ITV soap Emmerdale stopping earlier in January after a number of team members test positive for coronavirus.
And Coronation Streetpaused filming for a fortnight to allow for script rewrites "as a consequence of the coronavirus pandemic".
This series of Britain's Got Talent would have been a return for Cowell, who broke his back in an electric bike accident and was forced to drop out in 2020.
He was temporarily replaced by Diversity dancer and previous BGT winner Ashley Banjo - who later became caught in a row over a Black Lives Matter-inspired performance by his troupe, which attracted around 24,500 complaints.
However, these weredismissed by Ofcom, with the watchdog saying in a report that "the performance contained no content which was racist, unsuitably violent or otherwise inappropriate in the context of this programme".

Every Britain’s Got Talent judge from the show’s 10 year history ranked from worst to best
Over its ten-year run, Britain’s Got Talent has seen seven judges grace the panel to decide who or what is the next big thing in British talent.
We’ve also seen three guest judges step in to help out for a few series here and there when judges have been ill or unavailable.
So who of all of the judges in the decade-long history of BGT is the fairest of them all?
Well, now it’s their turn to be judged as we rank ten series of judges from worst to best…
Sadly, Kelly’s ended up bottom of the pile in our BGT judges ranking. Do you even remember her being on the show?
Kelly graced the panel for mere days back in the third series before she was given the boot, apparently helped along by hosts Ant and Dec who weren’t fans. It resulted in Kelly slamming the Geordie duo as ‘egotistical’ as Ant and Dec confirmed in a subsequent interview that Kelly would ‘never return’ to BGT. They wrote in their autobiography years later that Kelly had asked them what their job was on the show on her very first day, showing she hadn’t watched any previous episodes, and years later, Kelly hinted she was still annoyed at her sacking and still had ‘no idea’ why she was given the boot.
Simon Cowell said at the time it was because the format ‘didn’t suit’ four judges. That’s no longer the case though, eh, Simon?
Louis has made it onto the panel as a guest judge twice – once for series four when Simon was ill and again in series five when David Hasselhoff couldn’t attend auditions as he was in pantomime.
While we adore Louis on The X Factor, he’s not as stand-out on BGT. But that’s probably because for Louis to shine, he needs to be able to say ‘you remind me of a young Bryan Adams’ or be among Irish singers. Dancing dogs, magicians and silhouette dance troupes just don’t lend themselves to this kind of feedback.
Series six saw Simon joined by Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon and David Walliams. But when Amanda was on maternity leave, Carmen was brought in.
Though she hardly went down a storm with Alesha and David, her chemistry with Si was enough to see her into the eighth position on our list. He was literally like a drooling schoolboy.

We’ll be honest – we weren’t convinced about Alesha when she was first signed up as a judge. Yes she can sing and yes she can dance, but would she gel with Simon and Amanda?
Turns out the answer was a big, fat yes. Alesha is now a firm favourite on the panel and while she might have only made it to the seventh position in our list, it’s not a mean feat considering her competition.
He was only on our screens for one series back in series five but he still had time to make an impression.
Aside from his Union Jack jacket, our favourite thing about David was his straight-talking and love of saying ‘no’. And his blatant drooling over acts.
DAVID ON BGT
Here he says no…
And it’s a no again…
Oh, and look, some drooling to round things off…
The only bad thing about David Walliams being on the panel is that it means Michael McIntyre isn’t. There’s no beef (that we know of) between the pair or anything juicy like that, but Si’s hardly going to hire two comedians as judges, is he?
When Michael sat on the panel for series five, we laughed every single week. It was basically like getting to watch him do stand-up every Saturday.
Our stand-out moment has to be when he buzzed off a young wannabe-comic for saying his favourite comedian was Harry Hill.
David’s been a judge on the show as many years as Alesha – five – but it’s his effortless humour and camp chemistry with Si, followed by his ability to show a super serious side and get all choked up at the drop of a hat, that really wins us over.
He’s also incredibly genuine when he’s giving acts his feedback which only makes us love him even more.
Being the longest-serving judge of Britain’s Got Talent, as well as the only TV judge Simon Cowell has NEVER sacked, Amanda Holden was always going to make it near the top of our list.
She’s as sweet and caring as she is funny and sassy and of all the judges, she’s the only one who’s ever been able to always, always, always put Simon Cowell right in his place. She’s the girl-next-door whose long service on the show only makes her a better judge each year and BGT wouldn’t be BGT without her.
This was a tough one. How do you put Simon in a ranking of talent show judges WITHOUT putting him at the top? He’s sharp, never holds back, has a wicked sense of humour, he’s not afraid of showing he’s in a bad mood, is nearly always fair, he’s seen it all and, above all, he knows his stuff.
Si’s provided us with more funny moments than we could possibly mention in this… In actual fact, it’s Simon who helped our winner bag the spot. We’ll get onto that in the next bit….
It could only be Piers.
For three far too short years we were lucky enough to have Piers be the one to judge British talent alongside Amanda and Simon – our other two favourite judges.
While he might not have had a ‘talent’ such like Simon or Alesha’s music background or David or Michael’s comedy, one thing Piers has is a mind of his own that comes complete with a sharp, no-nonsense tongue, an unrivaled wit and the ability to banter with the best of them.
His bullish Britishness was perfect for a show all about British people and he was also never afraid of looking the fool and had an ideal schoolboy double-act with Simon. In fact, their more modest bromance was one of the reasons we loved Piers on the show so much.
Last of all, let’s not forget Piers gave us one of the funniest moments in BGT’s ten-year history. Air guitar, anyone? Anyone who can make Simon laugh like that is a winning judge in our eyes.

Piers, we thanks you for your service.
We should also add that Ant and Dec have guest-judged on the show when Simon was taken ill in the eighth series. They win everything anyway, so they didn’t make it into this list.

The Best ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ Judges Ranked, Who Takes the Top Spot?
For 14 series, Britain’s Got Talent has been responsible for finding some top-notch acts. Sometimes however, the judges on the show can be almost as entertaining as the contestants themselves. Over the years, the BGT panel has welcomed a number of different judges. From series to series, the BGT panel may look a little different, but they all served a unique purpose during their time on the show. Who is your favorite Britain’s Got Talent judge?
7. David Hasselhoff
The well-known American actor appeared as a judge on Britain’s Got Talent in series five. That year, he joined the likes of Michael McIntyre as replacements for Piers Morgan and Simon Cowell. Hasselhoff was reportedly “extremely excited” to become a judge on the new series, and was thrilled when he got the call from Cowell.
However, after his stint on series five, viewers discovered that he had been let go from the show. It was believed that “The Hoff” would bring an abundance of laughter to the show, however he didn’t really connect with the acts. An additional reason for his departure was that he had trouble understanding the contestant’s accents. Kind of an issue when you’re judging a show in a different country.
6. Michael McIntyre
Comedian Michael McIntyre also served a short-lived stint on series five of Britain’s Got Talent. While he tried to deliver personality and comic relief, the judge felt his role on the show was “too much of a departure” from his on-stage career. McIntyre ultimately decided to quit the show after one series.
“It was a different thing for me to do because obviously I work very hard to be a comedian and perform on stage and then to sit and judge other people was an odd experience, because it’s not something I’m used to,” he said. “It was wonderful to do, but I was just desperate to get back on stage and I didn’t get the feeling that anyone was watching the show for my judging.”
5. Piers Morgan
The journalist and television personality served as a judge on series one through four of Britain’s Got Talent. From his stint on the show, Morgan could definitely be classified as the “mean judge.” He was quick to buzz his “X” on any act he deemed silly, unworthy, or had any mistakes. If any judge were to press their buzzer, Morgan was typically the first.
Oftentimes, Morgan’s harsh critiques would cause tension among other judges on the panel and even with the audience. On the flip side however, Morgan did give props to the acts he felt could make it far in the competition.
4. Alesha Dixon
The professional singer and former girl group member has been a judge on Britain’s Got Talent since series six. Dixon is known for being kind and offering constructive criticism to the acts. With her background, she is particularly a fan of musical acts. R&B and soul acts are definitely her niche.
Dixon is also known for her fondness of dance. In fact, in 2007, she won the fifth series of BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing. A number of her favorite acts on the show have been of the dance variety, as she often was able to provide her professional opinion.
3. David Walliams
David Walliams is a children’s entertainer and comedian who has been a judge on Britain’s Got Talent since series six. Walliams’s bold and wacky sense of humor definitely keep things fun and interesting on the panel.
Unfortunately, most of his Golden Buzzer acts have not make it past the audition stage. Though it seems Walliams may not have the best eye for talent, his thought process is out of the box, and keeps the show interesting for viewers. Walliams rightfully proved to be a fan of comedy acts, and uses his expertise to keep a steady flow of laughter on the series.
2. Amanda Holden
Since 2007, English actress and media personality, Amanda Holden, has judged Britain’s Got Talent. She is a certified staple of the show, and oftentimes considered the most memorable judge. Holden is a fair, charismatic, and fashionable judge to say the least.
Out of all the current judges, she possesses the most diverse taste in acts, while also offering a well-balanced view. Often, her judging can be overshadowed by outfits that some viewers consider to be “inappropriate.” Nevertheless, Holden holds great pride as a BGT judge and chooses acts that make her “proud to be British.”
1. Simon Cowell
I don’t think the number one ranking should come as much of a surprise here. The one and only Simon Cowell is not only as a judge on BGT, but as the creator of the Got Talent franchise. Cowell has made an appearance on the panel in every series of the British leg since its debut.
While back in the day he used to take the title of the “harsh judge” his heart has seemingly softened over the years. He is particularly kind to acts involving children and animals. He has even had to put Morgan in his place once or twice for being “too mean.” As he is the owner of his own record label, Cowell has always been known to offer advice to singers in the competition. In fact, five out of his eight Golden Buzzers have all been singers. While Cowell takes the top spot in the BGT ranking, he pretty much will come in first place no matter what show he’s a part of.

Britain's Got Talent (series 14)
British talent competition series
Season of television series
The fourteenth series of British talent competition programme Britain's Got Talent was broadcast on ITV, but in two parts as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic in the United Kingdom during that year which affected production on the programme. The first half consisted of audition episodes that had already been filmed, which were aired between April 11 to May 30 2020. The second half consisted of the remaining episodes when production could resume, and were aired between 30 August to 10 October 2020.
Semi-finals and the live final incorporated a number of safety measures, including the use of a virtual audience and social distancing amongst hosts, judges, participants, and staff, with all episodes being aired weekly - a first in the programme's history. In addition, semi-finals were pre-recorded, changing the voting format as a result, including the results of public votes being announced in the final. Prior to filming of the first semi-final, Simon Cowell sustained an injury following an accident in August, forcing him to be absent for the rest of the series and leading to Ashley Banjo being brought in as a guest judge in his place. Following the previous series, the programme's sister show, Britain's Got More Talent, was effectively cancelled and was replaced by a new online spin-off, titled Britain's Got Talent: Unseen, featuring auditions not aired in the main programme.
The fourteenth series was won by comedic pianist Jon Courtenay, with sign-language choir Sign Along With Us finishing in second place, and comedian Steve Royle in third place. During its broadcast, the series averaged around 8.17 million viewers, despite the split in the broadcast schedule.
The judges auditions took place between January and February 2020, within London and Manchester. Prior to the start of production, staff had begun contemplating the future of its sister show, Britain's Got More Talent, in regards to its viewing figures and changes in viewing habits by its audience following the conclusion of the previous series. In October 2019, the decision was made to cancel the programme, and by 2020 its was decided that notable, yet unaired auditions for the fourteenth series would be made available via a new online spin-off titled Britain's Got Talent: Unseen.
Production on the series was dramatically impacted by the global coronavirus pandemic in March 2020, which was already affecting media productions across the world. While audition episodes had been pre-recorded and thus were aired as planned, British government measures implemented to prevent the spread of the infection effectively halted work on all live television productions. ITV was forced to split the series into two parts, and went into discussion with the production company over how to produce and air the second half of the competition within a safe working environment and ongoing monitoring of the pandemic. In May 2020, Amanda Holden indicated that production on the remainder of the series would resume in Autumn, with producers confirming in August that the remaining episodes would be produced and aired across September and October that year.
The broadcast schedule for the remaining episodes was revised, switching from being aired over the course of a single week, to a weekly arrangement, with only the final being aired live - the rest would be pre-recorded before their broadcast date. The format for these episodes was also drastically changed to provide a safe environment for staff, judges, hosts and participants: each round would be confined to a closed set; the judges would each have a separate judging desk; and a virtual audience would be present for each performance, in a similar arrangement used for the fifteenth season of America's Got Talent. Staff also arranged for large-scale performances to be altered in order to avoid mass gatherings; some had their routines pre-recorded in advance. The advancement of semi-finalists to the final stage of the contest was also changed. Instead of the original format used in previous series, judges would have first vote, choosing their top three acts in each semi-final and voting on which one of these would be sent to the finals, with the remainder from that semi-final, including those not voted for by the judges, facing a public vote to secure an additional place in the live final over the weekend of the episode's broadcast. The results of all five public votes would then be unveiled at the beginning of the live final.
One complication arose in August, when Simon Cowell became involved in an accident that left him suffering a back injury, and which required him to undergo surgery. Because doctors had advised him to not be involved in further television work until he recovered - his accident had already impacted his involvement in the live rounds for America's Got Talent that year - producers decided on bringing in street dancer and former BGT winner Ashley Banjo to act as a guest judge in place of Cowell during his absence. In addition, Holden was promoted to head judge for the semi-finals, effectively allowing her to make the casting decision in the event of a tied vote between the judges' top three semi-finalists.
Of the participants that took part, only forty made it into the five semi-finals - of these acts, singer Fayth Ifil, singing duet Honey & Sammy, comic singer & pianist Jon Courtenay, stand-up comedian Nabil Abdulrashid, and sign language choir Sign Along with Us, each received a golden buzzer during their auditions - with eight appearing in each one, and ten of these acts making it into the live final.

During the fourteenth series of Britain's Got Talent, racial issues were made key elements in complaints made by viewers regarding performances that were broadcast during the final rounds of the competition. In the first semi-final, aired on 5 September 2020, guest performer Diversity performed a dance routine inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement, which, despite being praised, received criticism from some viewers. The regulator Ofcom initially received over a thousand complaints to begin with, before this increased to around 24,500 based on news stories covering the original number of complaints. However, the regulator rejected all complaints on 17 September, ruling that the criticism was unfounded and that the performance had been aiming to promote "social cohesion and unity", adding that "freedom of expression is particularly important in the context of artistic works".
In contrast, comedian Nabil Abdulrashid received considerable criticism over his performances in the semi-final and final.
