The Teletubbies left the Britain’s Got Talent judges stunned when they turned up to audition for the show in London.

In the episode which aired on Saturday, Tinky Winky, Dipsy, Laa-Laa and Po could be seen surprising Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden, David Walliams and Alesha Dixon at the London Palladium with a dynamic dance routine.

They danced to tracks including Lets do the Tubby from their latest album Ready, Steady, Go!, Single Ladies by Beyonce, Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! by ABBA, and Best Song Ever by One Direction.

It was a reunion really for Cowell as the colourful quartet were one of his first artist signings.

They worked together back in 1997 on their number one hit Teletubbies Say ‘Eh-oh! which shifted over one million copies and stayed in the top 75 for 29 weeks.

A celebration ensued as the audience donned their party hats while the judges got in on the fun with their very own Teletubbies antennas.

Meanwhile, show hosts Ant and Dec led the confetti-canon ending as the crowd went wild.

The Teletubbies received a unanimous “yes” vote from all four judges.
