Several auditionees on the Ant and Dec-hosted series have already been awarded a Golden Buzzer – even though the show has only been back for a few short weeks.
But what does the Golden Buzzer mean? And who’s been lucky enough to have it pressed for them?
Here’s everything you know about the Britain’s Got Talent Golden Buzzer – and who’s received one so far this year…

During the show’s audition process each Britain’s Got Talent judge – and Ant and Dec – are allowed to press their Golden Buzzer for one act.
By pressing the buzzer, the act is put through straight to the live semi-final shows and doesn’t have to face the prospect of being cut by the judges before making it the live stage.
Who are this year’s Britain’s Got Talent Golden Buzzer acts?
So far Ant and Dec, Simon Cowell, Alesha Dixon and David Walliams have hit their Golden Buzzers for Britain’s Got Talent auditionees.
Ant and Dec were the first to do so, after being blown away by magician Marc Spellman’s emotional audition.
Marc left Ant in tears after telling how his wife Tessa had gone through seven rounds of IVF to get pregnant, only to be diagnosed with breast cancer.
Happily, he then revealed that his wife beat the illness thanks to chemotherapy, and they had since welcomed their daughter named Isabella.
Ant was left overcome with emotion, before he and Dec raced on to the stage ahead of the judges vote, pressing their Golden Buzzer and congratulating the contestant – with Dec admitting the performance “got him”.
Meanwhile Simon pressed his for father and son singing duo Tim and Jack Goodacre after their performance left fans in tears.
Tim, 42, and Jack who is 12 years old sang a self-written song named The Lucky Ones while playing acoustic guitar.
David praised the bond between father and son, while Simon agreed – claiming it reminded him of his bond with his son Eric.
Next up was 60 year old AA man Donchez Dacres who thrilled the judges and the audience with his infectious tune Wiggle Wine.
The singer got all the judges bar Simon on their feet, with Ant and Dec joining Donchez on the stage for a dance.
And with viewers at home declaring that the catchy song should be a number one hit, it was little winder that an excited David pressed his golden buzzer.
After pressing the buzzer, David called Donchez a “ray of sunshine” with the singer later telling the camera: “If anybody’s thinking about coming to Britain’s Got Talent, don’t think about it – just do it!”
Lifford Shillingford of Artful Dodger fame is Britain’s Got Talent’s latest Golden Buzzer act.
Alesha pressed her Golden Buzzer after the singer’s moving audition, performing the song A Change Is Gonna Come by Sam Cooke.
BGT judge Alesha was moved to tears, while some viewers questioned her decision to send Lifford straight through to the live semi-finals.
Lifford has confirmed he performed the 2000 hit Please Don’t Turn Me On with the band Artful Dodge and also toured with the band and Alesha’s own band Mis-Teeq around the same time.
Britain’s Got Talent continues Saturdays at 8pm on ITV.
