Simon Cowell promises that Britain's Got Talent will return for a new series next year regardless of what happens with coronavirus.

Simon Cowell has promised that Britain's Got Talent will return "even better" in 2021.

This year's series was thrown into chaos by the coronavirus pandemic, with lockdown forcing ITV to postpone the live semi-finals and final by several months.

Now that restrictions have eased, the show is due to resume this weekend, but Cowell has revealed that he already has one eye on the next series.

"In terms of filming, there's always a plan A, B, C and D," he told the Daily Star. "Whatever happens, it sounds like a cliche, but the show must go on, and it will.

"There's a real determination, whatever happens, to not only make the show work again next year but make it even better than this year.

"That's where everyone's feelings are right now. It's our job to give our viewers an hour of entertainment that they can escape into, that makes them smile and have fun."

Britain's Got Talent airs Saturday at 8pm on ITV.
