You’ll also be able to watch episodes online via ITVX where the first series is currently available on catch up.

In each episode, viewers will see contestants shedding their normal personas to become global icons, all courtesy of an elite team of glam and stylists overseeing an extraordinary on screen transformation.

Series one featured performers impersonating stars including Harry Styles, Barbra Streisand, Elton John and Cher

Series two will see Canadian singer-songwriter Shania Twain join the line up of judges.

It was previously announced that Sheridan Smith would not return to the show due to scheduling conflicts.

Katie Rawcliffe, Head of Entertainment Commissioning at ITV said: “Shania is one of the all time music greats, not to mention a fabulous personality, so it’s an honour to welcome her to the Starstruck panel alongside Adam, Beverley, Jason and of course Olly at the helm.”
