It has been reported that UK’s Got Talent could be postponed until 2022 despite plans to take place in the summer.
The show’s producers are said to be “almost certain” that the program will be abolished this year. The series is unlikely to air until spring 2022.
BGT recently announced that it will postpone the performance until the end of this year, hoping that the variety show can be aired in the fall by auditioning in the summer.
But Thames TV and Simon Cowell’s company Psycho, who created the program, said reluctantly admitted that there was no guarantee that the show could happen at all this year due to the epidemic.

And, according to Mirror Online, ITV presidents are working on schedules for the rest of the year that do not include BGT.
One source told the publication: “The nature of Got Talent in the UK means that all kinds of participants from all kinds of places, both domestically and internationally, are involved.
“A lot of people will be vaccinated by summer, but there is absolutely no guarantee that production will go on, as it is not clear what the restrictions on mass mixing and travel will be.
“Possibilities for airing this year range from extremely slim to non-existent. The latter is almost certain. No one is happy about it. But that’s how it works.”

The biggest problem is the show’s dependence on a live audience that responds to stage performances.
To cope with the limitations, last year’s BGT final was tuned by a virtual audience at home.
But Amanda Holden, one of the show’s judges, recently said the show is not the same without an audience.
Amanda is judging the show with Alesha Dixon, David Walliams and Simon Cowell of the show, who recently revealed why homeschooling is “more challenging” in this blockade.
On her Heart radio show, Blonde said, “I think every show on Got Talent TV in the UK needs an audience. We call them the fifth judgment and it makes no sense not to put them behind us.
“I think it affects the quality of the show and has the greatest commitment in the world. Because there was so much effort behind the scenes and everyone really put a lot of effort into making the best show. It’s still having an impact. I’d rather wait and do my best.”
