Let It Shine's latest guest judge Ashley Roberts is VERY excited about seeing Gary Barlow.
Ashley will join the show's full time judges Gary, Martin Kemp and Dannii Minogue for the second of three live shows which will air this weekend on Saturday 18th February on BBC One.
Former Pussycat Doll singer Ashley said: “I’m beyond excited to be joining Let It Shine and taking a judging seat beside the brilliant Gary, beautiful Dannii and handsome Martin.
"I’m looking forward to sharing my experiences of being in a band and I can’t wait to see what surprises the boys have in store for their live semi- final performances!”
Now speaking to 'BUILD Series LDN' (via Huffington Post), Ashley gushed over Gary and Take That: “Everybody seems to love them, especially Gary. I’ve heard so many positive things, so I’m excited to get to work with them.”
The ex Dancing On Ice judge continued: “I did that on ‘Dancing On Ice’, but that was on skates, so I feel I’ll know a bit more with two feet on the ground.
“There were some brave souls on that show, that’s for sure. It will be more of what I really understand, which is dancing, singing, being on stage."
And quizzed on what she wanted to see from the bands, Ashley went on: “It’s that star quality, that connection you have being on stage to the audience, but also having that synergy, because that really matters as well,” she said.
“You’ve got to connect with the people you have on stage with you, and making sure the audience has a good time. And talent is also important!”
Let It Shine airs this Saturday night on BBC One.
