'Britain's got Talent' is being moved to a Sunday night time slot next month to accommodate this year's Champions League final
'Britain's got Talent' is being moved for football.
The ITV talent show will be switched from its usual Saturday night slot to Sunday evening to accommodate this year's Champions League final between Inter Milan and Bayern Munich.
The match takes place on May 22 - the first time it has kicked-off on a Saturday - meaning Simon Cowell's programme will air a day later on May 23.
A source said: "We can't squeeze 'Britain's got Talent' on before, especially as football fans will want to hear Jose's mind games in the build up to the match between Inter and Bayern Munich."
The latest episode of 'Britain's Got Talent' airs on ITV1 tomorrow night (01.05.10) at 8pm.
This week viewers will see judge Amanda Holden be tied up with balloons by auditioning act The Balloon Brothers.
The blonde beauty - who is joined on the panel by Simon and Piers Morgan - gets taken on stage by the performers, who make inflatable creations to the music of the Blues Brothers, who proceed to wrap her in rubber.
A source said: "Amanda absolutely loved it, and even Simon agrees it was impressive."
