The contestants for this year haven't been announced yet, but they'll be following in the footsteps of last year's winner David.

He won after impressing the judges with his showstopper.

When filming the show this year the contestants and crew lived together in a 'bubble' because of coronavirus.

They all lived on location so they could safely film together.
