In each episode, they will decide their favourite team of the night before the voting audience pick just one person to go through to the series final.

Plus, there will be a very special performance from Olly and the judges.

Speaking about the series, Adam Lambert shared: "I think that everybody that watches Starstruck is going to have a great time. There’s something for everybody, there’s something for all music tastes and all ages which is really exciting and I think that it’s really easy to see yourself in the show.

"I mean these are regular people that work regular day jobs that are getting to live out their fantasy which is really exciting."

Sheridan Smith added: "It’s the perfect Saturday night show. I grew up with all the variety shows so I think it’s been a while since we’ve had something like this.

"There are lots of talent shows but this is pretty special in that it’s members of the public not celebrities, dressing up as their icons and not just one, three of them!"

Starstruck begins at 8:30PM tonight (Saturday, 12 February) at 8:30PM on ITV.
