Jane McDonald & Friends is back for 2020 with a brand new series.

The hit entertainment show returns for a third outing with four new episodes from this weekend.

Filmed prior to the ongoing pandemic, each episode sees Jane inviting stars of the stage, screen and music world to join her in some favourite songs, joined by a live band and dancers with audience members participating in all the fun.

The line up of the first episode is all about musicals with guest stars including Duncan James, Gareth Gates and the cast of Mamma Mia the Musical.

Episode 2 (21 November) sees Jane hosting a party celebrating hit film musical The Greatest Showman, with Daniel Brocklebank, Joe McElderry and Collabro.

Episode 3 (28 November) is a movie-themed party, with Limahl, Ore Oduba and Ray Quinn joining her on the show.

Episode 4 (5 December) sees a 1980s-themed party, with Carol Decker, Gary Wilmot and Hue and Cry joining her on the show.

Details on further episodes are to be confirmed.

As always in each episode there will be sing-along hits, laughs, tears, huge surprises and big prize giveaways as the diva of the north celebrates Britain’s unsung heroes.

The new series follows the release of Jane’s new album Cruising with Jane McDonald, Vol. 2 which features many well-known songs like ‘Ain’t No Mountain High Enough’, ‘Spinning Around’, ‘Mamma Mia’, ‘Volare’, ‘Ray of Light’ and ‘Jai Ho’.
