Filming on the popular ITV show was halted earlier this year due to the coronavirus pandemic BGT would have usually crowned a winner in May, but due to social distancing guidelines, only pre-recorded auditions were shown before ITV bosses worked out how to safely hold the finals. 

The semi-finals will now air pre-recorded episodes over five weeks, starting from Saturday 5 September, before the grand live final in October.

Simon Cowell won't be returning to BGT for the finals

ITV has said that, with safety concerns paramount, some acts will take part remotely via video link whilst others will perform in the TV studio without a live audience.

One thing will look very different this year though as sadly, Simon Cowell won't be returning to the judging panel alongside Amanda, Alesha Dixon and David Walliams, after falling off his electric bike and breaking his back.

Instead, he will be replaced by former BGT winner and Diversity star Ashley Banjo, who Simon said "will be a fantastic addition to the panel". "I couldn't think of a better person to sit in my seat whilst I follow doctor’s orders," Simon told The Sun on Sunday. "I hate that stupid bike."
