Episode 1: 2017: Auditions 1

Summary

Ant and Dec host the eleventh series of Britain's biggest talent competition as judges Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon and David Walliams return for the sixth year running to give their verdicts on more weird and wonderful auditions. As the first round of auditions get under way, which performers will impress the judges and who will be going home disappointed? Only one talented act can claim victory, winning the opportunity to perform at this year's Royal Variety Performance.

Review

It’ll be no surprise if David Walliams camps it up, Amanda Holden sheds a tear, Alesha Dixon does that fruity laugh of hers or Ant and Dec muck about like naughty schoolboys in the stage wings. But what may startle you is that Simon Cowell is the first judge to press the golden buzzer this year.

As always there have been murmurings on social media and allegations about how the show is fixed and the filming of acts is manipulated to “build a narrative”, but it’s still great entertainment. What’s not to like about the procession of singing robots, dogs doing yoga, hula-hooping magicians and juggling OAPs?

But after so many series, let’s hope Britain’s Got Talent can still come up with something so unusual that it takes our breath away.
