Britain's Got Talent is back in the Duchy, searching for the nation's next big act.

The Britain's Got Talent team are holding open auditions at Jason Thomas Performing Arts Studio in Truro.

Auditions will take place at the studio between 12pm-5pm on August 28th. 

They're open to performers of any age but under 18's must be accompanied by an adult.

It's a chance for Cornish performer's to showcase their talent and impress the panel with their skills. 

"The team are hitting the road and on the hunt for pure talent!

"So whether you're a magician, songwriter, daredevil or dog... head down to our Open Auditions and show your talent,  you could change your life forever."

Britain's Got Talent spokesperson

From comedians to drag acts, acrobats to animal stars, you name it anything goes. 

Josh Curnow from Wadebridge made it to the live semi-finals in 2016. 

In the past, Josh, who suffers from dyslexia, has spoken of how one teacher told him his musical ambitions were "just a dream" and how he hopes sharing his experiences will help build other people's self esteem.

So if you think you've got what it takes, now is the time to dazzle the team with your act.

"We're really excited, this is the first time we will be hosting Cornwall's main auditions for the show.

"Britain's Got Talent is open to all walks of life you get everything from acts that are completely bonkers to those who are super talented.

"Holding open auditions means it really is open to anyone and everyone, everyone gets a chance. 

"You don't have to reserve an audition, just turn up on the day and go for it!"

 Jason Thomas 

Successful applicants will be one step closer to performing in front of the television judges in 2019. 

If you can't attend the day you can give it another shot in Plymouth Guildhall on August 31st. 

But don't worry you can also apply online or via whatsapp, to see how - visit ITV.COM/TALENT.
