Britain’s Got Talent’ kicks off for a whole new series this weekend, and to celebrate the judges have all been photographed at the series launch having fun in the sun with their dogs.

All four of the judges - Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden, David Walliams and Alesha Dixon - turned out and posed for photos with their pooches.

Simon showed off his softer side posing for photos with his beloved dogs Squiddly and Diddly, while all we can say about Amanda is that she’s a brave woman letting a dog go anywhere near her while wearing that brilliant white jumpsuit.

Of course, 'BGT' already has a history with animals, a dog even won the show back in 2012 with Ashleigh and Pudsey.

Dog lover Simon has previously said that following the birth of his son Eric he was worried that he wouldn’t love the baby as much as his dogs.

Amanda - who has previously posed with adorable puppies at Crufts - has been on the show's panel since things began in 2007 and recently thanked ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ for changing the British public’s opinion of her.

The search for the new Susan Boyle or Attraction will kick off on Saturday night, but those dreading the inevitable tears need not worry as Simon has said he’s putting a stop to any sob stories on the show this year.

This series has also seen the introduction of a brand new feature called the “golden buzzer”, which will allow each judge one opportunity to over-rule the other three and immediately send an act through to the next round.

Sounds like an argument in the making if ever there was one - and we can’t wait!

The all new series of ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ starts this Saturday, 12 April at 7.15pm on ITV.
