Martin Kemp has said a second series of Let It Shine could be in the works for next year.

Earlier this year was the first ever run of Gary Barlow's Let It Shine with the show ending in January.


It was Five To Five who won the first ever series, securing a role in Gary's new stage musical The Band, based on the songs of Take That.

They beat Drive and Nightfall in the final and are currently in rehearsals for the show, which will open in Manchester in September.

Speaking this weekend, Let It Shine judge Martin Kemp told the Daily Mirror: "We’ve talked about and we’ve got some ideas. I’d love to do it again because it was so much fun."

However he ruled out a series dedicated to his band Spandau Ballet.

"We are in very early stage discussions about a Spandau Ballet musical, but I think it’s unlikely Let It Shine would be part of that," Martin added.

Meanwhile, Let It Shine judge Dannii is also hoping to return to the show next year.

Although she isn't quite sure what the prize would be second time around.

She said earlier this year: "I'd love to be a part of it again, I've just been very vocal that the end prize has got to be as good as this one.

"I know that audience-wise and press-wise, it's still fairly mysterious about what the actual show is. But I've been lucky enough to have the writer Tim Firth explain it to me, and it's brilliant.


"So if they find something that's gonna be as fantastic a prize, then I'd definitely love to be involved."

As yet the BBC have given no official word on a potential second series.
