Whilst details about 2022’s series are to be officially confirmed, applications to take part in the next series are oficially open and fans of the show can sign up for tickets to be in the audience when filming begins.

“Though ITV have always said BGT would be back in 2022, a question mark has lingered over whether it would come back in its original form.

Meanwhile applications to take part in the next series are currently open with a later than expected start air date on screen.

ITV and programme makers Thames and Syco announced in January that there would be no show this year, the first time since 2007 that the series has been off air.

They said in a statement: “Despite everyone at ITV, Thames and Syco doing their best to make it happen, and with our absolute priority of safeguarding the well-being and health of every person involved in the programme from judges, hosts and contestants to all of the crew and audience, the decision has been made to – unfortunately – move the record and broadcast of the 15th series of Britain’s Got Talent to 2022.

“BGT is known for its diversity of talent with big dance groups, wonderful choirs and lavish orchestras at its heart, and it has become clear that not only is it not possible to film auditions with these types of acts in a secure way but also that they are not able to adequately rehearse and prepare safely.

“Safety has to come first and, as a result, the recording of the show can’t currently go ahead as planned.”

Applications currently due to close on 25, January 2022 at 23:59 GMT though back in 2020, the series was hit by the pandemic, with the semi-final shows postponed an pre-recorded in front of a virtual audience, with some acts performing via video-link.
