Episode Summary

Auditions 1

The brand new series of Britain's Got Talent sees the departure ofaward-winning comedian Michael McIntyre and Hollywood icon David Hasselhoff as judges. The two new judges are actor/comedian David Walliams and former Mis-Teeq member and Strictly Come Dancing judge Alesha Dixon. Simon Cowell returns to the judging panel full-time, having only attended the live shows last year due to him launching The X Factor USA.

The judges are once again joined by hosts Ant & Dec, as they tour London, Manchester, Cardiff, Blackpool, Birmingham and - for the first time in the show's history - Edinburgh, in search of the nation's untapped pool of talent. Auditions are held in Blackpool for the first time since 2008.

This year the prize fund has been increased from £100,000 to £500,000, half of which comes straight from the pocket of Cowell.

Highlights of the first auditions show include an aspiring singer, a ballroom dancing duo and a massive all-male Welsh choir, all hoping to win the grand prize and the chance to perform at this year's Royal Variety Performance.
