What date does Britain’s Got Talent return?

No official date for Britain’s Got Talent has been announced.

It is likely to be in May and June 2019.

BGT was on our screens from April 14 in 2018… so the date is getting closer.

Who are the BGT judges in 2019?

Simon Cowell will return to the judging panel once again as head judge.

Joining him for another year are David Walliams, Amanda Holden, and Alesha Dixon.

However, David has hinted that 2019 may be his last year as a judge.

He joined the show in 2012 along with Alesha.

Will Ant and Dec host it?

Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly have hosted the programme since its inception.

However, in 2018 Ant missed hosting the live shows of BGT after he was convicted of drink-driving.

But in December 2018 The Sun exclusively revealed that the duo would next be seen on the TV together for Britain’s Got Talent in 2019.

Ant started filming the auditions for BGT in January 2019 and will be back hosting the live shows alongside Declan Donnelly in May and June.

In late January, it was revealed that Ant and Dec hit their Golden Buzzer.

In a tweet, they said: “We hit our @BGT Golden Buzzer today. It’s a Real good un. You’ll have to wait to see who it is tho… #BGT”

What is the prize money for Britain’s Got Talent in 2019?

The winners of Britain’s Got Talent will perform in front of the Royal Family at the Royal Variety Performance.

For the past five years, the winner has also won a prize fund of £250,000.

It has not been confirmed whether or not that will be the same in the 2019 show.
