Lauren & Terrell from last year's Britain's Got Talent are back tonight

24 April 2015 4:01 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

You might remember two of the hopeful contestants on tonight's episode of Britain's Got Talent... because they were on the show last year.

Lauren & Terrell made it to the live semi-finals in 2014, and tonight they're back, this time with a whole bunch of their friends.

The duo are now auditioning as part of dance troupe IMD, who hail from East London and describe themselves as "one big family".

The group, who have an age range of 9-18, credit an after-school club with keeping them on track, with one of the dancers revealing that they would have been "involved in stuff I shouldn't be" if it wasn't for the troupe.

But IMD suffer a setback before their audition when one of their dancers picks up an injury requiring medical attention, although she vows that she is "not going to let the team down".

Simon Cowell explains how he got "100%" hypnotised by a dog on Britain's Got Talent

24 April 2015 4:01 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Simon Cowell nods off after an encounter with a hypnotist dog during this weekend's Britain's Got Talent.

The canine contestant works its magic on the music mogul in tomorrow night's episode - and the video below is pretty convincing.

"[It was] 100% real," Cowell has since insisted. "I was feeling sleepy and then fell asleep.

"It's almost like your brain tells you to do something which you shouldn't be doing but you just go along with it. The next thing is, you've actually fallen asleep.

"I always said I wanted to find a cat that could play the guitar," he added. "I think we've done pretty well finding a dog that can hypnotise people!

"I just want to own the dog. I could literally rule the world with this dog because all it does is stare at you and you do whatever it wants."

"He kept saying to me that he felt really tired, »

Can Ant & Dec identify members of S Club Juniors and Blazin' Squad?

24 April 2015 7:11 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Would you be able to pick out lesser known members of S Club Juniors and Blazin' Squad today?

That's the task presented to Ant & Dec during this weekend's episode of Britain's Got More Talent, when presenter Stephen Mulhern gets them to play a special version of Never Mind the Buzzcocks.

After watching a snippet of S Club Juniors' 'One Step Closer' music video, Ant has to pick out singer Stacey McClean from a lineup of five women.

Here's a clue - you may recognise the real McClean from her appearance on The X Factor back in 2009, when she made it to Dannii Minogue's final six in Dubai.

Dec is faced with a more difficult task when he's asked to find Blazin' Squad's Mc Freak, who is today better known by his real name Oli Georgiou. Can you pick out the real Mc Freak?

Britain's Got Talent: Simon Cowell is left bemused by a hypnotising dog

24 April 2015 5:50 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Simon Cowell is left bemused by an auditionee's attempts at hypnotising him.

In tomorrow's (April 25) episode of ITV's reality series, Krystyna Lennon brings along her dog - a German Spitz named Princess - for her act.

Cowell is told to kneel in front of the duo on the stage, but the hypnosis attempt appears to have no effect on him.

"I don't think you can hypnotise everyone," says Alesha Dixon, as Cowell returns to his seat.

However, it seems Cowell does eventually end up under Princess's spell.

"I got hypnotised by a dog two weeks ago," he told London Live in February. "The dog hypnotised me, it was surreal. Into being what I don't know, but honestly."

Britain's Got Talent continues tomorrow at 8pm on ITV. »

BBC delay launch of Prized Apart

23 April 2015 4:07 AM, PDT | Virgin Media - TV | See recent Virgin Media - TV news »

The BBC has delayed the launch of their latest prime time Saturday night show because they don't want to go head-to-head against 'Britain's Got Talent'. 'Prized Apart' - which will be presented by Emma Willis and Reggie Yates - has been postponed by bosses because they fear a ratings wipeout if they take on Simon Cowell's talent show which airs on ITV and regularly attracts over 10 million viewers. The new program has been hailed as a ''game-changing'' format and had been scheduled to start in the spring. According The Sun newspaper, the show will now launch in the summer after 'Bgt' finishes. »

Britain's Got Talent: Simon Cowell dismisses dog cruelty claims

22 April 2015 3:42 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Britain's Got Talent judge Simon Cowell has dismissed claims of animal cruelty on the programme.

The Rspca confirmed last week that it would investigate the show after viewers complained about act Marc Metral and his 'talking dog' Wendy.

The act, which saw Metral being a ventriloquist while Wendy opened her mouth, was criticised for potentially using a special mask on the pooch.

However, Cowell has now told Best magazine that he would never allow animals to be mistreated on the show.

"Everyone knows I love dogs and we wouldn't allow an act to come on the show if it was unhappy or being mistreated," he said.

"I understand the charities being worried, but we saw the dog after the show and she was happy."

He added: "There's a lot of real animal cruelty in the world and I think that's what they should focus on."

Britain's Got Talent winners Collabro have signed a Us record deal with Sony Masterworks.

The Sun reports that the contract - which will see them releasing in the Us this summer - is worth £1m.

Sony Masterworks' senior vice president Mark Cavell described Collabro as "tremendously talented".

"I am sure they will win over both the hearts and ears of Americans," he added.

Meanwhile, Collabro member Jamie Lambert said that he has seen a lot of fans "campaigning for Us promotion" online.

Collabro interview: 'We've been painted as squeaky clean but we're not!'

"Who knows what this year might bring?" he added. "This time last year we'd only just auditioned for Bgt so anything can happen."

Collabro, who will release their second album Act Two in the UK later this year, won Britain's Got Talent in June 2014 and joined Simon Cowell's Syco label just days later.

Bgt's Becky O'Brien: 'I don't want people to feel sorry for me'

20 April 2015 6:44 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Britain's Got Talent star Becky O'Brien has insisted that she doesn't want people to feel sorry for her.

O'Brien - a mother of five - won over the judges with her rendition of 'Over the Rainbow' on Saturday night's show.

Speaking before her audition, she told the panel that she had delayed her dreams of being a singer because she used to be in an abusive relationship.

However, O'Brien said on This Morning today that she wants to focus on the fact that she "got through it" and is a happy person.

"I've had such an amazing, overwhelming response to the show on Saturday and all I can say is thank you to everyone who has responded," she said. "I've had some contact from Women's Aid, Refuge, and something called the Freedom Programme.

"And for me, I don't want people to watch me and feel sorry for me. That isn't what I'm about. »

Britain's Got Talent Boyband: 'We didn't deceive anyone about our past'

20 April 2015 5:23 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Britain's Got Talent dance troupe Boyband have hit back at suggestions that they "deceived" the judges and viewers by keeping their history in dance competitions a secret.

Jaih, Dylan, Mikey, Mike and Corey won Ant & Dec's golden buzzer after their audition in Saturday night's show, but reports later noted their previous dance experience and appearance on Sky1 show Got to Dance.

"It's not fair," Dylan told Digital Spy today. "We didn't deceive anyone, it's not like that at all. Lots of contestants on Britain's Got Talent have a past - not everyone just comes on Britain's Got Talent from nothing and just goes on. We entered Got to Dance and it was a great competition to do, and now we're on Britain's Got Talent. It doesn't put us at an advantage at all."

Asked if he was worried about how people would react to the reports, Dylan replied: "Talent is »

'Britain's Got Talent' sensation Henry Gallagher is set to ask out his schoolgirl crush who he wrote his song about.

The 31-year-old magician impressed with his close-up magic and his awe-inspiring card trick.

Britain's Got Talent: The good, the bad & the bizarre

Raven began his act by swapping £50 bank notes to the "much rarer, infinitely more valuable" bank of Britain's Got Talent £50 notes.

He then followed with a card trick that culminated in a flip book-style reveal of a magician picking the card Simon Cowell had chosen out of a hat on the last card.

Britain's Got Talent: Who was your favourite act tonight?

18 April 2015 1:30 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Britain's Got Talent carried on delivering on the talent, didn't it? Seven acts made it through to the next round of the competition, with one lucky act, dance group Boyband, getting Ant & Dec's golden buzzer.

To say the successful acts were diverse would be an understatement - we had a "dinky" martial arts specialist, a couple of singers, a cowbell performer (?) and the weirdest 'magical entertainer' we have ever seen (thanks Jeffrey, that was truly bizarre).

But who was your favourite and who are you looking forward to seeing again? Have your say by voting in our poll and leaving your comments below...

It was another crazy night on Britain's Got Talent, with more acts hoping to impress the judges and make it through to the next round of the competition. As always, some were more successful than others. Read on for the good, the bad and the bizarre from tonight's show!

The Good

Jesse Jane McParland - 9, Northern Ireland

Talent: Martial arts

Tell us more: We're a little bit in love with adorable Jesse Jane. The little firecracker - a "dinky little thing" as Alesha described her - came across like butter wouldn't melt when she first stood on stage... and then blew the judges away with a spectacular, back-flipping, sword-waving martial arts performance, complete with a terrifying face. "Well done!" Ant called at her, murmuring to us: "Best to keep on her good side." We'll agree with that one - Simon Cowell even suggested she could work as his security guard. »
