Jane McDonald tracks down some unsung heroes of the workplace to give them the Star Treatment they deserve.
Star Treatment (15 x 60 minutes) sees Jane and her style team visiting workplaces around the UK, from offices and factories to clubs and institutions. They will give the ‘star treatment’ to teams that have been nominated by their bosses to thank them for their hard work and positive attitude.
The lucky workers will be treated to a full makeover from Star Treatment’s style team in the ‘Glam Van’. The style team are: Andrew Trott-Barn on hair, Cassie Lomas on makeup and celebrity stylist Lorraine McCulloch.
Whilst they get their makeover the boss will work with top chef Ricky Andalacio to prepare a surprise gourmet meal for them. By the end of the day, the transformation from work star to superstar is complete, and the team walk the catwalk to the applause of their colleagues, family and friends before sitting down to a meal to remember.
Jane McDonald said: “Glitz, glamour and real life stories. Star Treatment has my name written all over it! Each week I’ll meet the unsung heroes of the workforce and treat them to a special makeover to show them how appreciated they are. There are a lot of tears and emotion but the ending is always really positive.”
Starts weekdays at 12.30pm on ITV.
