It's that time of year again as Britain's Got Talent is coming back to TV screens, ready to show viewers at home top tier entertainment from epic auditions to, at times, very emotional moments.


In a first look at the new season, the judges try their hand at finding the next act to perform in front of the royal family at the Royal Variety Performance – as well as win a huge £250,000 prize.

At the heart of many BGT auditions are the gold buzzer-worthy moments, which see the act get an automatic place in the live semi-finals, and it appears the judges had a blast choosing which incredible performance deserved the coveted spot.

The clip features Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon and Bruno Tonioli alongside hosts Ant & Dec as they press their glittering buzzers, as well as some sneak peeks at auditions.

As the clip comes to an end, words fly up that read: "Britain, you're golden."

Earlier this year, it was revealed that Tonioli got slightly excited when it came to the golden buzzer during this year's competition, which in turn saw him break it.

Fellow judge Dixon shared a photo of the golden buzzer with a crack down the middle on her Instagram and wrote: "Day one & Bruno is back, not breaking rules but breaking buzzers."
