The Britain’s Got Talent judges will perform with winners from years gone by in this year’s Christmas special – and Diversity is one of them.
After Alesha Dixon teased last month that ‘classic acts’ would be returning for the episode, it’s been claimed she, Amanda Holden, David Walliams and Simon Cowell’s stand-in Ashley Banjo are set to take to the stage alongside them.
According to reports, Amanda will be singing with 2014 musical theatre champs Collabro, while Alesha and 2017 winner Tokio Myers will give a rendition of Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas.
In addition, David will perform a routine with six of the show’s funniest comedians, including 2018 champion Lost Voice Guy.
Elsewhere, Ashley will be returning to the stage with his Diversity dance troupe, who stormed the competition in 2009, and 2008 street dancing winner George Sampson.
Diversity’s appearance will be the first time since they triggered 24,000 Ofcom complaints after they performed their Black Lives Matter routine in September.
‘The judges wanted to get up and do their bit in the Christmas special to put a smile on viewers’ faces,’ a source said.
The insider added to The Sun: ‘They will all perform but not alone. It’s not until you see some of the acts getting up with them that you are reminded of the quality of some of the past winners.’
Production on the Britain’s Got Talent Christmas special was halted in October after three crew members tested posted for coronavirus, putting the future of the series into doubt.
However, it was reported that filming resumed earlier this week at the Hammersmith Apollo.
Britain’s Got Talent Christmas special is expected to air later this month on ITV.
