Amanda Holden and Simon Cowell continue their search for BGT talent in Salford
Britain’s Got Talent judges Amanda Holden and Simon Cowell arrived at their second day of auditions in Greater Manchester.
joining panelists were Bruno Tonioli, dressed in a white top and trousers complete with a black jacket and gold chain, and singer Alesha Dixon in a pink jumpsuit for the red carpet at The Lowry in Salford Quays.
The quartet all wore sunglasses on a mild winter day with temperatures around 6C as they smiled for the camera on Wednesday before entering the cinema.
Holden wore a red dress while Cowell opted for a pair of blue jeans and sweatshirts as the two waved to the crowd.
Geordie hosts Anthony McPartlin and Declan Donnelly, known as Ant and Dec, who have hosted the show since 2007, both opted to wear dark blue jackets and trousers.
Donnelly, 47, was also seen chatting and laughing with fans while McPartlin, also 47, smiled.
The first day of BGT auditions on Tuesday saw a man with a rubik’s cube, a girl in a dancer’s costume and other vaudeville acts take the stage.
Former Strictly Come Dancing judge Tonioli, 67, was confirmed as a new panelist for the ITV show in January following the departure of comedian David Walliams.
Tonioli had previously joined Holden, 51, Cowell, 63, and Dixon, 44, at the first audition at The London Palladium in the West End.
He told The Sun at the time: “This is the biggest show on British television, here I am now. That’s what I mean. Simon would hate that I said it but oh well.
“I have nothing bad to say about Seriously, it changed my life.

“(But) this is completely different and it is a completely different kind of assessment. The scope of this program, you will see things that you did not know are coming.
Last year, comedian Walliams, 51, apologized for making “disrespectful comments” about auditioning contestants during a break from filming the popular show in January 2020.
Now in its 16th series, Britain’s Got Talent will return to screens later this year as artists vie for the chance to win the £250,000 prize and perform at the Royal Variety Performance.
