BGT is more exciting with new judges, says Dec

Declan Donnelly has said Britain’s Got Talent is more exciting now that the hit TV show has some new judges.

Speaking at the Royal Television Society Awards, Dec and co-host Ant McPartlin said they had really enjoyed this year’s auditions.

Dec revealed that new panellists Michael McIntyre and David Hasselhoff were letting more interesting acts through. The pair have replaced Simon Cowell and Piers Morgan as judges alongside Amanda Holden.

Dec said: “Famously comedians and magicians never really got much of a look in with Piers and Simon because neither of them have much of a sense of humour.

“So now with two new judges who do, comedians and magicians and variety acts finally have more of a chance.

“Dogs have less of a chance because Simon’s gone. We all know he loves a dog. So they have less of a chance.

“But it’s new and it’s fresh and it’s quite exciting and we’re looking forward to getting the series under way and seeing what everybody makes of it.”

Ant admitted the audition process was so crazy he hadn’t spotted any potential winners yet. He said: “They all kind of blur into one because it’s so manic on those audition days.

“We see so many people I couldn’t single anybody out that I think is a winner or a finalist at the moment. But we had a hell of lot of fun and the new judges are great.”

The presenting duo picked up the best entertainment performance gong at the RTS ceremony for their work on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!
