The Britain's Got Talent semi-finals are beginning to creep up on us, with the last of the show's 2022 pre-recorded episodes airing this Saturday.


Over the last eight weeks, we've watched as acts from across the world have descended on the BGT stage in the hopes of impressing judges Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon and David Walliams – but from next week, the remaining 40 contestants will be competing for a spot in the 2022 final.

Among those who've made it to the penultimate stage of the competition are the Golden Buzzer acts, which include singer Loren Allred, comedian Axel Blake, dancers Born to Perform, magician Keiichi Iwasaki and musician Flintz & T4ylor.

If you'd like to watch the shows in-person next week, then we have all the details you need on how to apply for tickets.
