Britain's Got Talent is set to return to screens this month - despite filming having to be halted thanks to the coronavirus pandemic.
Pre-recorded footage will be aired when the series launches again on Saturday April 11 on ITV, hosted by Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly.
In a tweet, the broadcaster announced: "Confirmed: Britain's Got Talent returns Saturday 11 April at 8pm on ITV #[email protected]"
It comes after last week's quirky advert teased the return of Simon Cowell's flagship talent contest.
Before Emmerdale was aired last Thursday, a trailer began with a man reading a newspaper with a front page reading: "Britain's Got Talent Is Back!"
After reading the exciting news the man then projected gold confetti out of the top of his head.
As the foil showered him, a girl on the bus looked over and the glittering strips explode out of her crown.
A number of other characters were then shown with streams of the shiny paper cascading out of their heads before music mogul Simon Cowell and fellow BGT judges Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon and David Walliams entered on screen.
The foursome strutted through a hotel lobby before meeting beaming host's Ant and Dec in the elevator.
Preened to perfection, Amanda and Alesha could be seen donning pastel pink ensembles as they walked arm-in- arm with Simon and David - who sported suave suits.
The advert ended with the message: "New series Britain's Got Talent This April."
Just last month ITV confirmed that the BGT live finals have been axed thanks to coronavirus.
The network had been working with production teams on the programme to try and make the live shows work.
However, in light of the government guidelines, which include restrictions on the public leaving their houses, ITV bosses decided that the live shows in May cannot go ahead.
The BGT auditions will still be aired as they have been pre-recorded.
An ITV spokesperson said in a statement last week: "The Britain's Got Talent audition shows will broadcast on ITV in the next few weeks.
"We have been working with the brilliant production teams at Thames and Syco to find a way of making the live finals work, which were due to be broadcast at the end of May.
"However, in light of the latest government health guidelines and in line with our priority of safeguarding the well-being of everyone involved in our programmes, production of the live shows cannot go ahead as planned.
"The live finals will therefore be broadcast later in the year."
