Fans have been eagerly awaiting the return of the talent series and it has been revealed that the judges have been taking their dogs along to the auditions – and bonded as a result.

“Funnily enough, we do judge people sometimes on how much they love animals or not. When someone doesn’t like animals, we’re all kind of like, ‘We don’t like you very much’. They’ve all sussed it, to be honest with you, if anyone comes on now, the first thing they say is how much they love dogs,” said Simon.
