BGT is auditioning at St Johns again

ITV1’s hit show Britains Got Talent will hold its PRELIMINARY auditions at St Johns Shopping Centre for the second year in a row.

Ant and Dec and the line-up of star judges won’t be present at the centre but Liverpools superstars will have their chance to wow the producers on Monday, August 21, from 12noon-4pm.

The show which has born world-renowned acts such as Susan Boyle and Diversity, is hoping to find the next ‘big thing’ when it hosts the talent search day at a unit on the Upper Mall in the city’s biggest indoor shopping centre.

St Johns’ thousands of daily shoppers and Liverpool hopefuls are invited to reveal their hidden talents to the producers of the show, who will select their favourites to go on to be placed in front of Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden, Alishia Dixon and David Walliams.

St Johns Shopping Centre manager Robert Bradley said he and the team at the family-friendly centre were thrilled to have been asked once again to host the auditions.

“We know Liverpool is bursting with some very talented people – we have even had them perform in the centre – so we know that the producers will have some tough decisions to make on the day,” said Robert.

“It’s an honour to be chosen to host the event and for the second year in a row too! We wish all the talented competitors the very best of luck and look forward to seeing some of them in the autumn on the TV hopefully.”

Producers, Thames TV, said that as with previous years, these are not large-scale auditions and nothing filmed is for broadcast.

Under 16s must be accompanied by an adult and if you cannot come to the auditions on Monday, August 21, between 12noon and 4pm at St Johns Shopping Centre, St George’s Way, Liverpool, L1 1LY, please apply online at itv.com/talent.
