After an exhaustive search across five cities, the Britain's Got Talent auditions are ready to air this month. Simon Cowell and the judges visited London, Birmingham, Manchester, Blackpool and Edinburgh in the search for this years talent.
Now in its eleventh year Ant and Dec take on hosting duties again, heading backstage to chat with the scores of auditionees queuing up for their chance at stardom, while Alesha Dixon and David Walliams come back for their sixth year on the judging panel alongside veterans Simon Cowell and Amanda Holden.
Even at this early stage, reports from the audition recording stages indicate that some of the acts have made a strong impression on the judges - but whether that will work in their favour remains to be seen.
