Earlier this year, the nation went pooch crazy as they voted Ashleigh Butler and her adorable dog Pudsey the winners of Britain's Got Talent.
Nearly six months on and the opportunity to follow in their footsteps or to prove Simon Cowell oh so wrong, a la Jonathan and Charlotte, has come around again following the announcement that the Britain's Got Talent open auditions begin this month.
Auditions will be taking place in London, Birmingham, Glasgow, Belfast, Cardiff, Manchester Sheffield, so there's no risk of people wanting to audition, missing out on the opportunity.
Speaking about Britain's Got Talent 2013, which we hope will still feature David Walliams, Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon and Simon Cowell on the panel, Sam Donnelly, executive producer, for BGT said:
"Britain's Got Talent is a show like no other and after a fantastic series in 2012 we want to make sure that our next series is packed to the rafters with the very best variety talent around too. We have high hopes for all the cities and we’re determined to find even more talent than ever before.”
