Britain's Got Talent confirmed as cancelled for 2021

Britain's Got Talent has been cancelled for 2021 due to the ongoing pandemic. It had been hoped the series could be filmed later in the year but 'safety must come first'.

In a statement, ITV confirmed the news and said: “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.

Britain's Got Talent 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.

It is hoped the producers will start filming again in the early part of next year with the show airing at its usual time in the spring.

I understand the problems caused by the ongoing pandemic and safety must come first. However what about all the people like myself who submitted audition videos for the 2021 show. What will happen to them? How about a show with a selection of the audition videos? Any chance of suggesting this to Simon and ITV?


You have to do what you have to do. You will return during a happier
