SUSAN Boyle may not have won Britain’s Got Talent but that hasn’t stopped her selling more than 20 million records worldwide and becoming a millionaire in the process.

Now, there’s a chance for you to follow in her footsteps as the 11th series of the prime-time ITV show heads to back to the Capital in a search for new talent.

The Britain’s Got Talent team will be at The EICC on Saturday, so if you think you’ve got a talent which can impress and entertain, now is the time to show them what you can do.

Successful acts will then be in with a chance of securing a place at one of the judges’ auditions in 2017.

Executive Producer, Amelia Brown, says, “We’ve had some amazing winners over the last ten series, from this year’s champion Richard Jones, who was the first magician to ever win the show, right through to Paul Potts, Diversity and Collabro.

“We can’t wait to see what talent Edinburgh has to offer. 

“Anyone can apply - there is no age limit and we are looking for all kinds of talents.

“So if you feel you have something special to show us then make sure you apply, you never know where it might take you.”

Britain’s Got Talent previous winners have included singers Paul Potts and Jai McDowall, dancers George Sampson and Diversity.

Then there was gymnastic troupe Spellbound, dog trick acts Ashleigh and Pudsey and Jules and Matisse, shadow theatre group Attraction, musical theatre act Collabro and magician Richard Jones.

Britain’s Got Talent is open to any performer of any age, with any talent. All you need is a skill and star quality which they think will impress.

So if you want to be the next Jai McDowall, Diversity or even Ashleigh and Pudsey, visit and register for one of the audition days later in the year.

You can also apply by sending in a video audition of your act.
