Declan Donnelly prepares to host tonight’s first Britain’s Got Talent live semi-final without Ant McPartlin

Declan Donnelly has slammed online trolls as he prepares to host Britain’s Got Talent first live semi-final without Ant McPartlin tonight.

Tonight on ITV, Declan Donnelly hosts the first live semi-final of this year’s contest, with the audition process having left judges Amanda Holden, David Walliams, Simon Cowell and Alesha Dixon with 40 acts to pick from.

Tonight, eight of them will be performing live in the hope of impressing both the panel and the TV audience to win one of the two spots in the live grand final, where the winning act will receive a life-changing £250,000 prize and a spot at this year’s Royal Variety Performance in November.

As Ant continues to receive treatment after his drink-driving charge in April, Dec is set to host tonight’s BGT live show alone.

“You can’t do anything about live stuff once it’s done,” Dec said to The Sun’s TV Magazine.

“At times the criticism stings, but not often. Usually it’s a case of “Look at you with your 11 [Twitter] followers. You’re brave.”

Dec added: “I’ve got twice the amount of work to do, so we’re going to crack on.”

Britain’s Got Talent Live Semi-Finals air Monday 28 May to Friday 2 June at 7.30pm on ITV followed by the Live Results show each night at 9.30pm.

Britain’s Got More Talent, also live, airs each night on ITV2 at 10pm.

The Live BGT Final airs on ITV on Sunday June 3 at 7.30pm
