They captioned the clip: ‘We’re back, baby! What a fab first day’.

The page also revealed that the day had been full of excitement already, with not just one but two golden buzzers being used on the first day.

The fifteenth series, planned for production and broadcast last year, was met with concerns from ITV, Thames and Syco Entertainment on how to safely conduct filming amid new government restrictions to combat the COVID-19 pandemic.

The initial decision was to postpone production until later on that year, however all involved agreed that they would not produce a new series until 2022.

It was reported on Saturday that Simon will remain on Britain’s Got Talent until 2025 as the show’s deal is extended. 

The TV personality will be a judge on the TV show for another four series after ITV extended the programme’s current deal by 12 more months, claims The Mirror. 

It comes after it was revealed on Friday that Simon is letting go of ‘almost all his staff’ at Syco and significantly downsizing the multimillion pound entertainment empire after almost 20 years.

A source told the publication about BGT: ‘He is showing no signs of slowing down and is working on lots of American projects too.’ 

A representative for Simon and ITV were contacted by MailOnline for a comment.

The star, who has repeatedly discussed his resistance to marriage, sent shockwaves earlier this week when it was revealed he had popped the question to his girlfriend Lauren Silverman, 44, and he is now said to be focused on family. 

Insiders revealed Simon has begun downsizing the company in order to spend more time with his family: 

‘Simon has reached a time in his life when he doesn’t want the stress of running a global empire and so has made the difficult decision to wind down Syco.’

A production source told MailOnline: ‘Everyone who has worked with him is just incredibly grateful for those opportunities and experiences and they understand the direction he wants to take things. Those that are leaving will be snapped up fast’.   

Simon, who shares son Eric, seven, with his fiancée Lauren, has spoken in the past about his ‘ unhealthy addiction to work’ and needing to slow down, after breaking his back in a bike crash last year and falling down the stairs in 2017. 

Syco Entertainment is a media entertainment company, based in both London and Los Angeles, and founded and owned by Simon. Having previously centered on music, the company currently focuses on TV production.

The company owns The X Factor and Got Talent franchises while the music branch oversees a slew of talents founded on the respective shows.
