The TV talent show returns for its 13th series next spring and the team are all ready on the look out for auditonees.

The producers will be at the Regent Theatre in Ipswich on Saturday, October 6 looking for wannabe singers, master magicians and performing pooches.

Successful acts will then be in with a chance of securing a place at one of the judges’ auditions in 2019.

The show is open to any performer of any age. All they ask is for those auditioning to have a skill and star quality to impress.
