Ant McPartlin has made a major 'prediction' on who will win Britain's Got Talent this year, with him putting his support behind one particular act ahead of the semi finals starting on Monday. And the identity of the performers he's backing is no surprise as they are his and Dec's Golden Buzzer act.

The ITV hosts didn't wait long to hit the Buzzer this time round with Ant and Dec, like co-star Amanda Holden quick off the mark to send an act straight through to the live shows in episode one of the new series, having been blown away by martial art acrobats Ssaulabi. The collective jetted in from South Korea to audition for Britain's Got Talent and having watched them from the wings, the presenters then stormed the stage to give them a guaranteed spot in the knockouts.

Ssaulabi were in a very competitive line-up for the first semi final on Monday night, along with two other Golden Buzzer acts, the Stardust skating duo and singer Taryn Charles an Ant and Dec reunited with the group behind the scenes, posting a video of them chatting to them on their Instagram. And Ant didn't hold back when it came to who thinks should be 2024 champion.

Filming from rehearsals, Dec panned the camera round to show Ssaulabi, with new dad Ant then shouting: "Look who it is.....hopefully the winners of Britain's Got Talent that's who it is!" Dec then added: "Wait til you see what they've got in store, it's amazing!"

Bookies don't share Ant's confidence that'll be Ssaulabi taking home the BGT title this year, as its Denise & Stefan and Sydnie Christmas who still lead the odds on winner.
