All Star Musicals 2021 line up
The six celebrities taking part in the latest special are presenter Fern Britton, actor Ben Miller, former-MP and broadcaster Gyles Brandreth, presenter Anita Rani, actress Catherine Tyldesley, and sports presenter Radzi Chinyanganya.
Fern Britton said: “A chance to dress up and dance with a full orchestra! What a Christmas present!”
Ben Miller said: “I have new respect for musicals! After weeks of training I am nowhere near ready. In fact, I don’t know what I was thinking.”
Gyles Brandeth said: “I can’t sing and I can’t dance, but I can dream! And this is a dream come true – being in a number in my favourite musical, My Fair Lady.”
Anita Rani said: “What better time to come together to perform some show stopping musical hits on stage. It’s a festive treat that’s guaranteed to bring some sparkle to everyone’s living rooms this Christmas.”
Catherine Tyldesley said: “I’m a huge musical theatre fan- so the chance to sing a song from the first musical I fell in love with is a dream come true. Really excited about the tuition too – a great chance to learn from the best.”
Radzi Chinyanganya said: “I cannot believe that I’ll be performing in front of the nation doing something that honestly terrifies and excites me in equal measure. I’m starting as a day one, hour one beginner, so I’m really going to be testing the skills of the fantastic musical coaches. I can’t really sing, I don’t normally dance, so what could possibly go wrong?!”
Meet the judges!
They’ll be performing for a judging panel made up of West End stars Elaine Paige, Samantha Barks and Trevor Dion Nicholas as well as a live studio audience.
John Barrowman will host the latest special.
He will team up with Elaine, Samantha and Trevor to open the show with a spectacular Greatest Showman medley.
