Who is on the Britain’s Got Talent 2024 judging panel?

It has been confirmed that Simon will be joined once again by fellow judges Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon and Bruno Tonioli for the 17th series as they search for stars across the country.

Former Strictly Come Dancing judge Bruno Tonioli joined the show last year as he replaced outgoing judge David Walliams after he left in 2022.

Speaking about his return to the show, he tolfRadio Times: "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."
