Comedian Michael McIntyre and David Hasselhoff have been announced as the new additions to the Britain's Got Talent judging panel.
The new series will see the pair appear on the panel alongside Amanda Holden, when the show returns in 2011.
It has also been revealed that Simon Cowell will not be present for the audition stages, but he will be back for the live shows.
ITV Director of Entertainment and Comedy, Elaine Bedell, said: "Michael has established himself as one of the biggest names in comedy and entertainment in this country and, as someone who made his big breakthrough on the Royal Variety Performance, he knows exactly the pressures facing the acts on Britains Got Talent."
McIntyre is said to be "thrilled" and "extremely excited" about his new role.
David Hasselhoff, who has also hit the headlines this week after he confessed to dating two women at the same time, is no stranger to the judge's role.
He previously appeared on the judging panel in the US for the NBC series, America's Got Talent, from 2006 to 2009.
Ant and Dec will continue to present the show.
