Judges Alan Carr, Jessie Ware, Samantha Barks, and Amber Riley are set to mentor these hopefuls as they dive into their maiden acting workshop, bringing an iconic movie scene to life.

While the stage will be graced with seven breathtaking acts, the question remains: At the end of the day, which Sophie will be returning to the UK, losing her shot at becoming the West End’s leading lady?

The suspense builds weekly, leading up to a show-stopping live finale in the heart of London’s West End, where two prodigious talents will land the coveted roles for Mamma Mia’s 25th anniversary in London.

Speaking about the series, Frozen star Samantha Barks said: “I know the feeling. I’ve been there, I’ve been in those shoes. So, I don’t make any decisions flippantly. I cared a lot….

“I think about it deeply. I feel things deeply when we’re sending someone home because I’ve been there and I know it’s real people’s lives. So it was definitely emotional.”

Mamma Mia! I Have A Dream airs tonight at 9PM on ITV1 and ITVX from 6:15PM.
