Britain’s Got Talent announces huge format shake-up for 2023 – and fans will be in charge | The Sun

BRITAIN'S Got Talent is getting a complete makeover for 2023.

ITV has announced a huge format shake-up kicking off when the show returns next year.


It will be the public that can now secretly nominate an act and put them forward for the opportunity to audition in front of the judges.

Last year, Britain’s Got Talent introduced Golden Moments to the series, which saw each of the judges visit an unsuspecting act and invite them down to audition for the show.

The judges surprised Voices of Armed Forces Children’s Choir during a rehearsal, singing doctor Bambang Atmaja during a Heart Breakfast interview, eco-warrior and poet Aneeshwar Kunchala at school and Skylar Blu during a dance class.

There was also a very special moment on stage, where the mother and two daughters of aspiring singer, Nick Edwards, surprised him whilst he was sat in the audience, resulting in a mesmerising performance, moving many to tears.

It's the first of many shake-ups after David Walliams announced he was quitting the judging panel.

The decision came after David, 51, was forced to apologise for foul-mouthed comments about contestants.

A source said: “He hasn’t taken the decision lightly, but it just feels like time to move on.”

Moves are underway to replace David Walliams after a decade on the show.
