Award winning actress and comedienne Dawn French is to host Little Big Shots, a brand talent show just for kids.
Little Big Shots is an American format that premiered on NBC earlier this year to hit ratings.
The show, which in the US stars Steve Harvey and is produced by Ellen DeGeneres, is a variety talent series just for children.
There is no competition element with kids aged 3 to 13 simply appearing on stage to show of their often weird and wonderful skills.
In addition to the performances, the youngsters chat with the host which regular leads to hilarious results.
Dawn said: “Rarely have I relished the thought of doing a show as much as this. I LOVE LOVE LOVE everything about it, especially the fact that I will get to witness the amazing talents of these remarkable little humans up close. It's going to be a privilege. Yay! Bring it on!”
The centrepiece of the programme is an enormous revolving stage. On one side is a sofa for Dawn and the pint size prodigies to get to know each other; and on the other is the all important performance space which is as versatile as the variety of talent on offer.
Each show will unveil aspiring young acts from the UK and around the world, with talents that range from black belt karate champions to classical music masters and miniature chefs. There are tiny dancers, young soul sensations, audacious skateboarders and spelling bee specialists who are only just out of nursery.
Little Big Shots is expected to air in March on ITV.
