Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon and Bruno Tonioli have all put their judging hats on once again for the latest season of Britain’s Got Talent.

Tonioli joined the judging panel in 2023 after making the decision to leave Strictly Come Dancing after 18 years the year prior.

Speaking to Radio Times Magazine about joining the series, Tonioli said: “I had a ball, partly because I had never seen it before. It’s true! Simon has teased me to death about it.

“I didn’t even watch Strictly – I don’t watch shows that have a judging panel because I don’t want to be influenced by another judge. I just want to do my own thing. But I had the best time.

“It’s a proper variety show and the range of talent is incredible.”
