How do you apply to Britain’s Got Talent?

Applications for BGT 2018 are open now and there are three ways to try your luck.

You can audition in person, and face the judges and the production team head on to see if you have what it takes to go for the top prize.

Another way is trying your luck via video, by uploading a clip online to see if you have what the judges are after.

Finally, you can go the old fashioned route and audition by post – putting your performance on a DVD or memory stick and sending it in.

As soon as you’ve plucked up the courage, head here to fill in your application form and get stuck in.

The deadline for submitting online applications is December 31 2017.

Who will present Britain’s Got Talent 2018?

As Simon Cowell‘s production company SyCo is the team behind the show, it is almost guaranteed that Simon will be back for the next series.

However, it is unknown whether David Walliams, Amanda Holden and Alesha Dixon will also be secured for another round at the judges table.

The current judges line-up has been in place for the past six series, with Amanda and Simon remaining constant throughout the entire eleven-series run.

For the first four series, there were only three judges, with Piers Morgan in the third chair.

Michael McIntyre and David Hasselhoff then joined the team for 2011, but they only lasted one series.
