BRITAIN’S GOT TALENT Cancelled Due To The Pandemic, meaning acts are not allowed to travel for the auditions
The coronavirus pandemic has hit one of ITV’s biggest and most popular shows, Britain’s Got Talent, which usually holds its auditions in cities all over the UK in January, but, with strict lockdown restrictions in place, up until the middle of February at least, meaning that people are not allowed to travel, show bosses have had to postpone the upcoming series, hoping to run it in the Autumn instead.
Auditions had been scheduled by the producers, to start on January 17, with a socially-distanced live audience, in the London Coliseum, and was due to herald the return of showbiz mogul, the 61-year-old Simon Cowell, who missed the previous BGT series after breaking his back and was replaced on the judging panel by 32-year-old ‘Diversity’ dancer, Ashley Banjo.
A BGT spokesman said, “The filming for the 15th series of Britain’s Got Talent has been postponed from its proposed record dates in late January. With the announcement of the latest Government health guidelines and with our priority of safeguarding the well-being of everyone involved in our programmes we, together with the production teams at Thames and Syco, have taken the decision to move the record and broadcast of the forthcoming series. We will confirm revised dates in due course”.
