The return of 'Britain's Got Talent' has unfortunately been delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Season 15 of 'Britain's Got Talent' was supposed to debut in late January.

However, ITV has announced that due to the lockdown measures that are now in place in the UK, they have had to postpone the show.

An ITV spokesperson said: "The filming for the 15th series of Britain's Got Talent has been postponed from its proposed record dates in late January.

"With the announcement of the latest Government health guidelines and with our priority of safeguarding the well-being of everyone involved in our programmes we, together with the production teams at Thames and Syco, have taken the decision to move the record and broadcast of the forthcoming series.

"We will confirm revised dates in due course."

TV and film productions have been permitted to continue filming during the lockdown.

However, due to the large scale of 'BGT', with its huge number of acts, who would be travelling from across the country, the producers chose to delay filming rather than go ahead.

New dates for the series, both in terms of when they will recommence filming, and when new episodes will debut on TV, have yet to be announced.

Judges Simon Cowell, Alesha Dixon, Amanda Holden and David Walliams will all return, while Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly will host once again.
