HOPEFUL performers will take to the stage this weekend in a bid to secure a place on one of the nation's favourite TV shows.

Hampshire talent will be queuing up to showcase their skills for what could be the start of an incredible journey.

The auditions at city shopping centre Westquay are for the 13th year of Britain's Got Talent. Last year London based pianist Tokio Myers was crowned king of the competition winning the top cash prize of £250,000 - with eight-year-old magician Issy Simpson and comedian Daliso Chaponda runners up.

In 2016 soldier Richard Jones was the first magician ever to win the show. Times for the auditions at Westquay this weekend are yet to be confirmed.
