Last year, ITV bosses canceled Britain’s Got Talent’s former spin-off to focus on the main show and social media as they tried to attract a younger audience.

Britain’s Got More Talent, presented by Stephen Mulhern for 12 years, aired some of the wackiest acts that came to audition.

The new spin-off will feature invisible auditions and moments and give even more competitors their moment in the spotlight.

Eight mini-episodes will appear on the ITV hub immediately after the main program is broadcast on ITV1.

Britain’s Got Talent: Unseen will also have additional interviews with Ant and Dec as well as invisible comments from judges Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon and David Walliams.

Nigel Hall, global TV manager at Syco Entertainment, said: “In these difficult times, we are determined to provide entertainment for the whole family.

“We are convinced that Britain’s Got Talent: Unseen will be perfect for this and the ideal accompaniment to the main series. “

ITV announced yesterday that Britain’s Got Talent will return to our screens in less than two weeks despite the coronavirus lockout.

The show has already filmed the show’s auditions and will broadcast them as planned – despite the future of live shows in the balance.

A Twitter ad said, “Confirmed: Britain’s Got Talent returns Saturday April 11 at 8 p.m. on ITV #bgt @antanddec. “

ITV confirmed last week that the next live episodes of Britain’s Got Talent are at stake amid the ongoing international coronavirus pandemic.

In a statement, the channel said “the Britain’s Got Talent audition is scheduled to air in the coming weeks as scheduled”, but no decision has yet been made on the live episodes that will determine the winner.

“We are also working with our production colleagues to see how we can make BGT live shows work in a constantly changing situation and we will update it in due course,” they concluded.

The news comes after ITV also confirmed that they will be broadcasting Ant and Dec takeout Saturday night for the very first time without studio audiences, and that they will delay future episodes of The Voice live.
