Britain’s Got Talent 2019 All You Need To Know

The 13th series of TV talent show Britain’s Got Talent returns later this year and again is sets out to find new talent besides the many hopefuls who seek fame, fortune or 2 minutes of fame on the telly.

Host Anthony McPartlin return to our screens full-time alongside co-presenter Declan Donnelly. Whilst the start date is not yet confirmed start date the most recent series have always begun in the first few weeks of April. So a launch date of Saturday 13th April 2019 seems pretty likely.

The live auditions were filmed in January 2019 with Ant & Dec pictured together smiling for the press. 

Simon Cowell previously said he was looking forward to McPartlin’s return in the 2019 series. Speaking at the X Factor 2018 press day, the 59-year-old explained, “He is welcome back and we have missed him. But he has done the right thing by taking some time off, and he will come back fresh and will enjoy it.

“We have always made it clear what our relationship is, we help each other. We are friends and he is welcome back anytime.”

For the seventh year running, Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon and David Walliams were sifting through the acts in the 2018 series. But will they be back for the eighth year in a row? As yet, the judging line-up hasn’t been confirmed. But the foursome work so well together, it’d be a bit of a shock if there were to be any changes on the panel.

Alexa Dixon said “We’ve worked together now for, I think, 7 years and when we get together it is like a family vibe in the studio and it just feels good and it’s so great, and everyone’s happy and back to our naughty selves.”

This is a sentiment echoed by Britain’s Got More Talent host Stephen Mulhern, who predictable completes the line-up will remain the same for several years to come. He explained, “The judges have been the same for seven years. I don’t think they’ll change for the next two, three, four years.

“It just works, everyone gets on and everyone has a good time.”

However, David Walliams has hinted the next run of the show may very well be his last, as his contract is due to run out this year.

“I have one more year, and then my contract is up. [After that?] We shall see,” he revealed.

The live BGT shows usually begin in the last week of May, and so at this point we can assume they will kick off on Bank Holiday Monday – 27th May 2019. If that’s the case, the final will most likely fall on Sunday 2nd June 2019.

Last year BGT moved out of a TV studio for the first time and instead the live shows were held at Hammersmith Apollo in London.

“It has to be in a theatre and I’ll tell you why,” explained Simon ahead of BGT’s 12th series in 2018. “We go into a studio and make it look like a theatre, it’s like buying a Mini and trying to make it look like a Rolls Royce! There’s something about the theatre element.

Whenever we do the live shows in a studio, something, that gloss, glow, whatever you want to call it, is missing for me. So I’m thrilled because this year I have got my own way…again.”
