ITV fuming as BGT: The Champions winner ‘exposed’ weeks before show airs

Britain's Got Talent fans have been waiting eagerly for their new Champions edition to hit screens.

The show, which has already been pre-filmed, is set to air later this year and will see winners an finalists from across the global Got Talent franchise returning to be crowned the ultimate champion.

But bosses are said to be in a state of panic after the winner of the upcoming series has outed themselves to members of the public.

While Mirror Online have opted not to expose the ultimate champ, they didn't seem bothered about hiding their identity as they were seen showing off their victory to fans on Tuesday after wrapping filming for the show.

The winner was shortly followed by the second place act who was also stopping for selfies and making their presence known.

Clearly un-phased about facing Simon Cowell's wrath, the winner gave away the world's biggest spoiler as they cheered and brandished a trophy for all to see.

A TV source exclusively told Mirror Online: "Producers are fuming about the flagrant lack of respect – the show doesn't even have an air date yet.

"Posing with the trophy and cheering as they left filming clutching it really gave the game away especially as everyone knows the paps are outside."

It has not yet been announced when Britain's Got Talent: The Champions will be hitting screens, but it has been tipped to air at a similar time to BBC rival, Strictly Come Dancing .

So far, confirmed acts include 2009 stars Stavros Flatley and 2011 singer Jai McDowell.

Susan Boyle was also tipped to be joining the competition, but later ruled herself out.

Meanwhile, MerseyGirls dancer Julia is set to return too, and even reportedly left Simon Cowell teary as they came face-to-face again after he forked out £175,000 to pay for her life changing surgery.

The show will be judged by the usual foursome, Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden, David Walliams and Alesha Dixon, and hosted by Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly.
