Stephen Mulhern, 40, made a surprising announcement during last night's instalment of Britain's Got More Talent, revealing a dramatic change to the format of the ITV talent contest.
With the live semi-finals beginning on Monday, Stephen confirmed that the judges will no longer have any power to vote for which acts go through to the final, meaning the top two semi-final performances will be selected by the public vote alone.
"This year there will be no judge vote. No judge vote at all," the presenter announced. "This means that the two acts who go through each night will be those with the most public votes, so it's all down to you guys at home."

In previous years, the act with the most votes from the public gets an automatic pass to the final, whilst those in second and third place face a deliberation from the judges, who then decide which one will join the top act to compete for the prize money and the opportunity to perform at the Royal Variety.
Only the two acts with the highest number of public votes ail go through out of the eight that take to the stage each night next week, but the judges will get one chance to send through an act of their choosing.
