GOLDEN buzzer-worthy talent in Towyn will be on hand to provide plenty of entertainment to anyone who's had their fill of the General Election.

In a coup for the town, The Morton Arms - alongside the Kinmel Bay based event organisers NWE Entertainments - will play host to auditions for the next series of Britain's Got Talent on Thursday, December 12.

Ahead of the popular ITV show's return next April - and on the same day as the General Election - producers are hitting the road to find North Wales' most talented performers. Across its 13 year history, BGT has jump started the careers of winners such as Collabro and Diversity, as well as launching contestant Susan Boyle into the stratosphere in 2009.
