Britain’s Got Talent made a return last night and left most fans emotional wrecks with a string of cute, touching and uplifting acts.

But the opening episode of the series was ruined for some – those excitedly tuning in to watch BGT on catch-up via ITV Hub discovered that the audio was out of sync.
