Britain’s Got Talent (BGT) 2022 is just around the corner, finally returning to add a little razzle-dazzle to our Saturday nights after a two-year hiatus.
ITV’s signature talent competition had to be cancelled last year amid the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.
Auditions for the new series have already begun, with thousands queuing up to prove themselves to the judges.
But when will BGT return to our screens?
When does Britain’s Got Talent 2022 start?
There has so far been no confirmation from ITV on when they expect the BGT show to start airing.
However, in previous years, auditions took place in January and February, with the show starting in April and airing until around the end of May.
If 2022 follows suit, we could be watching the best of British in just a few months.
What channel will Britain’s Got Talent be on?
BGT typically airs on ITV and the ITV Hub on Saturday nights from around 8pm.
You will be able to watch episodes of BGT on the ITV Hub straight after they have aired.
Who are the Britain’s Got Talent 2022 judges?
The fantastic four return to the judging panel once again to sample the finest of Britain’s talent.
They include funnyman David Walliams, singer Alesha Dixon, presenter Amanda Holden, and the man that everyone loves to hate – Simon Cowell.
Simon was replaced by Ashley Banjo in the 2020 series following an electric bike accident that left him hospitalised with a ‘broken back’.
Each judge has their own red buzzer which they can press to let the performer know they aren’t a fan of their act.
If all four judges push their buzzers then the performance has to stop straight away.
There is also a glorious golden buzzer that can be pushed once per series by each judge and Ant & Dec.
The buzzer rains golden confetti down on the performer and sends them straight through to the live shows.
Who won Britain’s Got Talent 2020?
In 2021, ITV was forced to cancel the hit reality show when it became clear it’d be too difficult to film safely due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
That means 2020’s winner, comedy musician Jon Courtenay, has reigned supreme for two years.
Jon was Ant and Dec’s golden buzzer choice that year.
He beat Sign Along With Us and Steve Royle to the win.
