There’s a Britain’s Got Talent 2017 live show twist announced, the judges can pick a wildcard act for the final.

After thousands applied and hundreds auditioned, the Britain’s Got Talent search has now reached the live semi-finals which will be kick starting on ITV this Monday.

Each night eight of the the final 40 semi-finalists will be performing live in the hope of impressing the viewers at home and winning the all important public vote.

The two acts with the highest vote will then proceed onto the live final on Sunday 4th June with a chance of winning a life changing £250,000 and a spot at this year’s Royal Variety Performance.

And in an additional twist, at the end of the week there will be a judges wildcard allowing our formidable foursome, Simon, Amanda, Alesha and David, to select one act of their choosing to go through to the live final.

On tonight’s first live Britain’s Got More Talent show Stephen Mulhern exclusively revealed some of the guest performances viewers can expect to see across the week including former Fifth Harmony member Camila Cabello, Alfie Boe and Vera Lynn as her very own hologram, the cast from Bat Out of Hell The Musical, X Factor’s 5 After Midnight and BGT reigning champion, magician Richard Jones.

The live final will also be a spectacle of talent, joining forces with a performance from the UK’s biggest girl group and the UK’s biggest dance crew, Little Mix and Diversity
