The move has been made so that the final doesn't clash with Sunday's One Love Manchester benefit concert which was announced yesterday.

An ITV spokesman said: "Ariana Grande's 'One Love Manchester' benefit concert is bringing artists and the public together, and will raise funds for the Red Cross's Manchester Emergency Fund.

"ITV and Britain's Got Talent have no desire to distract from this important cause, so we have taken the decision to move the Britain's Got Talent Final from Sunday night."
