Amanda, 48, has recently signed a £1million pound recording deal with Virgin EMI after a video of her singing went viral.

Simon revealed on today's episode of Lorraine that fellow judge Amanda - more used to sitting behind the desk - will be appearing on-stage at some point during the next series.

All four judges appeared on the episode and chatted on a couch.

"He's asked me whether I want to sing on BGT next year and I've said yes," Amanda revealed.

"Providing it's live," Simon joked back.

"Of course it's live!" Amanda laughed.

"Are you going to audition for all of us now?" Simon asked.

I just signed a deal with Virgin, I don't need to audition
