Britain's got talent launches in LondonBritain’s Got Talent returns to our TV screens this weekend and we were lucky enough to be invited to have a preview of the first episode.

Simon Cowell, Alesha Dixon, Amanda Holden and Britain’s Got More Talent host Stephen Mulhern all headed down to the launch at swanky London venue the Institute of Contemporary Arts to show us what we can expect from Saturday night’s show.

We were treated to a rather British spread of afternoon tea and champagne to enjoy before the viewing and also got the chance to check out Alesha’s enviable legs in the flesh.

As the judges took to the stage to introduce the first episode Simon, 53, described it as: ‘Delectable, beautiful and powerful’, before being forced to apologise to the audience when they ran into a few technical hitches.

Luckily Si was on hand to make light of the situation promising the audience that Amanda would sing them a song if they had to wait much longer.

Unfortunately there was no need for Amanda, 42, to belt out a number but we did get a look at some of the weird and wonderful acts that auditioned this year and let’s just say – you won’t be disappointed!

Britain’s Got Talent starts this Saturday on ITV at 7pm.
