With head honcho Simon Cowell still recovering from breaking his back, it's been up to his Britain’s Got Talent co-stars to hold the fort.

And in a sneak peek of the ITV’ show’s Christmas special – Britain’s Got Talent: Christmas Spectacular – judges Amanda Holden and Alesha Dixon have most definitely ensured that the show is full of its usual glamour.

While the actress and singer dazzle in daring thigh-split gowns, hosts Ant and Dec have fully gotten into the festive spirit.

The much-loved presenting duo make very fetching elves as they don their best matching Christmas fancy dress and strike a pose on top of a festive fireplace on the show’s stage.

Below them current head judge Amanda, 49, looks gorgeous in a green velvet strapless gown, while Alesha, 42, stuns in a plunging sparkly dress.

Heart FM presenter Amanda also shared a snap of herself and Alesha from the shoot cosying up to their co-star David Walliams as they show off their legs. "Santa baby … we’ve been awfully good girls Christmas Day @BGT 8pm @ITV" she wrote.

The last series of the ITV programme saw Amanda receive over 1000 complaints for her revealing dresses.

Meanwhile, former BGT winner and Diversity star Ashley Banjo is once again stepping in for Simon after initially filling in for the 60 year old on the show’s regular series alongside Amanda, Alesha and David earlier this year.

The talent show's Christmas special will welcome back some of the programme’s most memorable and talented acts from the past 14 years.

  • Amanda Holden pays tribute to husband Chris on 12th wedding anniversary and says she 'couldn't live' without him

  • How much money Ant and Dec are worth and what they get paid for I'm a Celebrity

And in a first for the hit show, the acts will also be collaborating and performing together for what ITV calls "the ultimate Christmas extravangaza”.

Another first will be some surprise performances from the judges, with ITV revealing: “All four judges will be stepping out from their seats and into the limelight for the very first time in what promises to be a festive filled show.”

Opening up about what viewers can expect, Amanda said: "I'm really looking forward to our BGT Christmas Day special.

"It's the first time we've been on TV on Christmas Day but it's not a competition, so no winner.

"Instead it will be a time to celebrate the amazing talent we've seen over the last 14 years."

And revealing which of the talented acts from over the years we can expect to see on our screens, Amanda added: "George Sampson, Diversity, Tokio Myers, Richard Jones, Calum Scott, Stavros Flatley, Attraction and Jon Courtenay will all be there.

"Plus more that I'm not allowed to mention!! I'm sure you can make some good guesses. Myself and all the other judges will be taking to the stage too, which is also a first!"

We can't think of a better way to spend Christmas Day than with a mince pie in one hand and a glass of Prosecco in the other while BGT is on the telly!

Britain’s Got Talent: Christmas Spectacular airs on Christmas Day at 8pm on ITV.
