The series will feature previously unseen moments and talent auditions that didn’t make it onto the main show, and aims to “follows the success of BGT’s social platforms which have amassed more than one billion video views and 22 million followers,” according to ITV.

On Thursday, ITV released a first look video of the upcoming 14th series, with teasers of various eccentric auditions.

Speaking about the spin-off series, Athena Witter, Director of Digital at Fremantle said: “We have seen tremendous growth in Britain’s Got Talent’s presence across all major digital platforms and we are finding that our viewers continue to demand entertaining content. It’s thrilling to be able to announce an additional platform for audiences to enjoy the wealth of content that sits outside of the main show.”
