WATCH: BGT The Champions: first look

Britain's Got Talent is back this month, but this time it's a supercharged version, featuring past champions.

BGT: The Champions will bring back winners from the last 13 series, competing to be crowned the ultimate champion.

Regular judges, Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon and David Walliams will all be back and the series won't just show off the talents of British stars.

International acts who took part in their own version of the show, from different places around the world, will also be taking part.


The trailer for the new series shows presenters Ant and Dec holding Union Jacks while surrounded by spectacular flames.

In the footage, we can also see some of the returning contestants who will be taking part, including Series One champion Paul Potts, father-and-son act Stavros Flatley, who are whipping off their shirts and slapping their bellies again.

Ashleigh Butler is returning sadly without Pudsey, who is replaced by a new dog, Sully.

Comedians Lost Voice Guy and Jack Caroll are also back for the new series along with current champion Colin Thackery.

However, it's unclear whether iconic champion Susan Boyle will return, as it's rumoured filming clashed with Su-Bo's busy schedule.

Britain's Got Talent: The Champions comes to the UK following the success of the American version, which aired in the US earlier this year.

The series, which was recorded at Wembley Arena, will air over six weeks, with two acts each week going through to the grand finale for the chance to compete for a cash prize and the coveted Champions Trophy.

Britain's Got Talent: The Champions starts on August 31 on ITV.
