With Britain's Got Talent returning to screens this week, presenters Ant & Dec hit up Trafalgar Square in a brand new clip to open this year's series – and it's VERY patriotic.

Introduced by the sound of trumpets, Ant & Dec can be seen appealing to the crowds, with Ant saying: "People of Britain, here is our campaign promise. In these turbulent times we promise to put a smile on your face and a spring in your step."

Surrounded by cheerleaders, circus performers, a brass band and Bollywood dancers, the boys make an impassioned speech...

"In 2017 this glorious nation needs entertainment and for that we require your help... no matter who you are or where you're from, there is one thing that we all love," Dec declares.

Before it cuts to Simon Cowell interrupting: "Me!"

Ant clarifies: "No, no, no, the one thing we all love is talent!"

The boys are also seen visiting children in schools, while clips of normal everyday Britons in supermarkets and pubs are shown tuning in to Ant & Dec's campaign – even the Queen is watching.

Dec declares: "Throughout this campaign, we shall ask that one important question – has Britain got talent?"

This new season marks David Walliams and Alesha Dixon's sixth year on the show since joining during the 2012 series, alongside long-running judges Simon and Amanda Holden.

Britain's Got Talent returns this Saturday (April 15) at 8pm on ITV.
