Little Big Shots returns to ITV for a second series tonight.
Award winning actress and comedienne Dawn French is once again the host of the show, which is based on the original US show.
Little Big Shots series 2 will conclude this evening, Sunday, May 27 at 7PM.
With no prizes at stake, no winners or losers, judges or competition, Little Big Shots is simply a showcase for 4 to 13 year olds to take to the stage and show that you don’t have to be a grown-up to be a star performer.
Series 1 saw talents that ranged from classical music masters and a miniature chef to an ace ventriloquist and a marvelous magician… and of course, Britain’s youngest shepherd… and his sheep!
There were tiny dancers, pop sensations, an audacious scooter stunt kid and a spelling bee specialist who were all only just out of nursery.
For the new series, which will run for six episodes, the producers are looking forward to spreading the net even further to find amazing, talented children bursting with enthusiasm and eager to demonstrate a multitude of skills.
In tonight’s last episode, it’s a jam-packed jamboree of a series finale, as Dawn French is joined by sensational soul singers, a circus strongman and an operatic angel.
Plus, Spain’s biggest popstars in the “under 4 foot” category.
Dawn said: “I absolutely loved filming the first series and cannot wait to get started on the second. It’s the show where I get to hang out with incredibly talented children from all over the world, making new friends on the sofa each week.
“I will never forget Balang from the Philippines, who had me in fits of giggles while teaching me a move or two, or Thomas who sang David Bowie’s Space Oddity so beautifully! In our crazy upside down world, it is great to make a show that is just so positive.”
Peter Davey, Head of Entertainment, ITV added: “This is such a great format and Dawn is the perfect host. I’m looking forward to seeing what extraordinary talents will be unveiled on the next instalment.”
Wall To Wall’s Chief Executive, Leanne Klein, said: “I am absolutely delighted that Little Big Shots is returning to ITV for a second series. With the fantastically funny Dawn French at the helm, the audience have really taken the show to their hearts.”
