BGT becomes the early early show
TIME was of the essence as Ant and Dec filmed the new run of Britain’s Got Talent, which returns to ITV in May.
The duo have confirmed claims that they stood their ground against audition sessions being allowed to overrun.
Ant explained: ‘We did say, “Look, we get there earlier than everybody else, well, not everybody, and we’re not prepared to work so late”.’
Dec added: ‘It’s not fair on the performers or the audience.’
Did boss Simon Cowell agree? ‘To be fair to Simon, he’s started this year with a new attitude, “I want to get it done earlier”,’ said Ant.
