It feels like only yesterday Britain's Got Talent crowned Attraction the 2013 winners but already auditions are getting underway for the brand new series.

ITV has announced that open auditions for the 2014 run of the talent show will kick off in Cardiff on 19 October, before moving to Birmingham, Manchester, London, Belfast and Edinburgh.

Hopefuls be warned, though, judge Simon Cowell has high standards this year!

He said: "This year I want even bigger and better than before. We want the sensational, the original and of course the best. I want something that I've never seen before."

Watch Simon talking about what he wants from an audition below:

This year's Britain's Got Talent final was nail-biting as dance troupe Attraction beat 14-year-old comedian Jack Carroll to the prize: cash and a place at The Royal Variety Performance.

Singing brothers Richard & Adam came in third place but as they recently achieved a number one album with The Impossible Dream, have proven that just because you don't win the show doesn't mean you won't have huge success.

The show is open to performers of all ages with all talents. Hopefuls will first audition in front of producers and, if successful, will audition again in front of the judging panel from January 2014.

The full open audition dates/venues are below:

19-20 October: The Swalec Centre, Cardiff

18-30 October: The ICC Birmingham, Birmingham

9-11 November: Manchester Central, Manchester

16-20 November: Emirates Stadium, London

24 November: TBC, Belfast

30 November - 1 December: TBC, Edinburgh

Good luck if you're auditioning!
