Britain’s Got Talent off-air for another year at least, say producers

Britain’s Got Talent will not return until 2022 at the earliest, ITV has said.

The broadcaster’s flagship entertainment show has been off-air during the coronavirus pandemic.

It was hoped to film auditions during the coming months.

But the continuous lockdown restrictions scuppered that plan

Now television executives expect BGT will not be back for another year.

The producers 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.

“BGT is known for its diversity of talent with big dance groups, wonderful choirs and lavish orchestras at its heart.

“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.”
