Britain’s Got Talent bosses are stepping up security for the live shows after growing fears the series will be targeted by terrorists.
Recent reports have revealed chiefs are on high alert due to the current “severe” terror threat in the UK.
Airport style security will be enforced at Fountain Studios in Wembley, North London.
Security wands will be used on everyone entering the building, and bags will be examined.
Extra security staff have been hired and told to remain vigilant before and during live broadcasts.
A source revealed: “Producers are taking no chances. Because BGT is such a big show, they know there is a risk of an attack.
“As a result, every possible measure is being taken to make sure everyone is safe. Not only are extra checks being put in place, all staff have been told to keep an eye out for anything suspicious.”
The Britain’s Got Talent live shows will be broadcasted from tonight through to Thursday, with a break on Friday due to a football match.
The grand final will air on Saturday which will see one the last remaining acts crowned the winner of Britain’s Got Talent 2016.
The source said: “Everything is in place to make sure the live shows go smoothly.
“The venue has a strong reputation and they want to keep it that way.”
Britain’s Got Talent airs tonight at 7:30PM on ITV.
