But for the moment, the only people present will be a small crew and the judges, Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon and David Walliams.”

There are two parts to the prize on offer for this year’s contestants.

First, the cash prize of £250,000 – an amount that has stayed the same in recent series of the show, but in its first series was lower.

Then the winner will get the chance to to perform at the Royal Variety Performance.
