Alesha Dixon and Paddy McGuinness host Your Face Sounds Familiar, a celebrity entertainment series with a comedy twist, coming soon to ITV.
This fun-filled new format will challenge six celebrities, comedian and presenter Alexander Armstrong; Olympian Denise Lewis OBE; entertainer Bobby Davro; Emmerdale actress Natalie Anderson; presenter Matt Johnson and actress Cheryl Fergison to perform as different iconic music artists every week before a panel of judges including Julian Clary and Emma Bunton.
In a show that takes making a good impression quite literally, each of our regular cast of celebrities will be transformed into a different legendary singer, and perform an iconic song and dance routine from that artist’s catalogue every week.
But in a unique twist, the celebrities will have no control over who they will perform as on each show. Instead, they’ll have to face the Your Face Sounds Familiar ‘Randomiser’ at the end of each programme to decide who they’ll be becoming the following week. Whether it’s an older or a younger artist, or even a star of the opposite sex, the ultimate decision is down to the Randomiser, guaranteeing hilarious and dramatic results.
Performing in front of regular judges Emma and Julian, and a special guest judge each week, the celebrities will have to impress as they sing and dance their way through to the finale.
Also, no-one gets evicted in this show. Instead, each contestant is awarded points, which will be scored on a leader board. The one with the most points at the end of each show will receive a cash prize for a charity of their choice with a further grand prize pot for the series champion.
