All Star Musicals line up

The contestants taking part include Broadcaster Alan Titchmarsh, money expert Martin Lewis, Only Fools and Horses actress Tessa Peake Jones and I’m A Celebrity: Extra Camp host Joel Dommett.

Joining them are comedian London Hughes, Coronation Street star Daniel Brocklebank and Emmerdale actress Amy Walsh.

Martin Lewis confessed: "My little girl loves musicals, and so I’ve been watching them with her; and when I mentioned that I’d been asked to do All Star Musicals, she got very excited.

"And I love my little girl, and I love a challenge. So I’m going to try and take my vocal chords to places they’ve never been before!”

Alan Titchmarsh added: "I've always loved musicals and while I have always resisted taking part in any 'reality' TV shows I found the chance of being able to sing on the stage of the London Palladium irresistible.

"That said, I'm now scared stiff! I sang as a boy in the church choir and later as an adult, but I have never sung anything like this in public. Eeek!"

Amy Walsh said: “I’m so excited to be taking part in All Star Musicals. I watched the last series and loved it! I was so envious of my friend Mike Parr doing it, so when I was asked to take part this year I was 100% on board. "

Joel Dommett commented: "It’s been an incredible experience doing All Star Musicals.

"My chosen song has been going round and round in my head for weeks - if I’m honest I can’t wait to get the show over with so I can stop humming it so my friends will hang out with me again."

After each performance, the panel will award the celebrities a score and at the end of the night, these scores are combined with the studio audience vote to crown one celebrity the All Star Musicals champion.

The special will air TONIGHT Sunday March 17 between 6PM and 8PM, hosted by John Barrowman.

You can watch the show online via ITV Hub.
