It has been a long wait to find out who is going through to the 2020 semi-finals for Britain’s Got Talent, but the final 40 have been revealed as the series continues.

The show was forced to hit pause due to the global Covid-19 pandemic, but now with new regulations to adhere to they are getting back on track with exciting acts to follow.

Returning as judges for Britain’s Got Talent are Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon, and David Walliams, with hosts Ant McPartlin and Dec Donnelly.

While Simon Cowell is being replaced for the remainder of the series by Ashley Banjo, a former winner of BGT and now a TV personality, who will be taking Simon’s seat as judge.

The replacement follows Simon having broken his back over the summer due to an electric trail bike accident, but he is now well on his way to recovery.

Acts through to the final 40 include a keyboard-playing Tyrannosaurus Rex, a dance troupe called ‘The Coven’, an American unicyclist, a trio of string musicians, and a ‘sexy Doctor Who’ magic act.

The Britain’s Got Talent lucky five to have received a Golden Buzzer are comedian and musician Jon Courtenay, who was chosen by Ant and Dec, and a 12-year-old singer Faith Ifil, who was Simon’s Golden Buzzer act.

As well as a mother-daughter singing duo Honey and Sammy who were Amanda Holden’s choice, comedian Nabil Abdulrashid, who got his golden ticket from Alesha Dixon, and choir ‘Sign Along With Us’ who was chosen by David Walliams.

Britain’s Got Talent auditions were filmed and aired in the earlier months of this year, but as the UK went into lockdown in March production had to shut down.

ITV aired the first episode of the series reboot this past Sunday, which was filmed back in February, that saw the judges select their favourite acts to go through to the semi-finals.

Following this will be the first of five pre-recorded live semi-finals, kicking off on Saturday 5th September, 2020. The show will then be aired weekly with a virtual audience replacing the regular audience.
