First look at Britain’s Got Talent in new epic opener
The 2017 instalment of Britain’s Got Talent begins this Saturday and Ant and Dec have addressed the nation ahead of the brand new series.
The promo video sees presenters Ant and Dec take to the steps of Trafalgar Square in London, as they address the nation in an epic campaign speech. As a mass crowd hangs on their every word, the duo call to the British people for more entertainment and talent.
The trumpets sound and the circus performers, cheerleaders and Bollywood dancers surround the hosts, as Ant says: “People of Britain, here is our campaign promise. In these turbulent times we promise to put a smile on your face and a spring in your step…”
Dec announces: “In 2017 this glorious nation needs entertainment and for that we require your help…no matter who you are or where you’re from, there is one thing that we all love…”
Simon Cowell interrupts: “…me!”
Ant corrects the BGT judge, saying: “No, no, no, the one thing we all love is talent!”
As the Blues Brothers’ “Everybody Needs Somebody” begins to play, the video cuts to a clip of the Queen watching the events on television, as Dec asks: “Throughout this campaign, we shall ask that one important question – has Britain got talent?”
The boys high five and the crowd cheers: “Yes we have!”
Britain’s Got Talent starts Saturday (April 15) at 8pm on ITV.
