Guess The Star
 
Five well-known stars are completely transformed into their favourite musical icon for a performance on new ITV show Guess The Star.
 
Hosted by Jonathan Ross, the programme pits three celebrity teams against each other to try and deduce who the disguised stars are, in the shortest time possible. 
 
Viewers can guess along at home as each of the celebrity teams  -  Team Coronation Street (Antony Cotton, Catherine Tyldesley and Sally Dynevor) Team Daytime (Eamonn Holmes, Stacey Solomon and Judge Rinder) and Team Diversity (Jordan Banjo, Perri Kiely and Sam Craske) - compete to score the most points. 
 
But the celebrity teams have a difficult task as each star undergoes a massive makeover before miming a classic hit from their musical hero.
 
The first performance of the night is Uptown Funk by a star disguised as Bruno Mars. He seems to have the moves and is a dead ringer for this pop icon, but will the teams be able to guess who the celebrity is?
 
Up next is an amazing performance of Chandelier by a star disguised as singer Sia. With her face completely hidden under Sia’s iconic black and white wig, will the teams be able to guess who it is?
 
Lemmy from Motorhead is the next singer taken on by a star in disguise, miming to rock classic Ace of Spades. Dressed in leather and sporting a cowboy hat and facial hair, the celebrity teams might need a clue from host Jonathan Ross to work out who this celebrity is.
 
The fourth act is a duo disguised as country singers Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton miming to Islands In The Stream. They clearly have a fabulous time during their performance but is their disguise enough to fool the celebrity teams?
 
The final performance is an extremely energetic performance of Queen classic Don’t Stop Me Now by a star disguised as Freddie Mercury. Will the teams recognise who the star is leaping about the stage in tight fitting pants?
