ITV has recommissioned All Star Musicals for two special episodes this winter from Multistory Media.

Six celebrities per episode will take centre stage as they embark on the ultimate musical theatre masterclass, each hoping to steal the show with their spectacular performance and be voted All Star Musicals Champion.

Equipped with world-class mentoring from the returning panel; Elaine Paige OBE, Samantha Barks (Frozen, Les Miserables) and Trevor Dion Nicholas (Hamilton, Aladdin), the celebrities will be supported by a full West End ensemble and, in the lead up to their big performance, also receive training from West End choreographers and vocal coaches. The musical numbers performed will be from a range of famous musicals, both contemporary and traditional.

Returning to host the show is John Barrowman, who will also team up with the panel for the opening performances.

The first special episode ‘All Star Musicals at Christmas’ is due to air this Christmas season on ITV and ITV Hub, with the second episode expected in 2022.

All Star Musicals is commissioned by Katie Rawcliffe, ITV’s Head of Entertainment Commissioning and Peter Tierney, Entertainment Commissioner. Executive Producer for Multistory Media is Simone Haywood, with Lewis Thurlow as Series Editor and Rory Dalziel as Series Producer.

Katie Rawcliffe, ITV’s Head of Entertainment Commissioning said “This Christmas we’re bringing people together through the gift of musical hits, laughter and entertainment – all from the comfort of their living rooms! With a varied array of famous faces taking to the stage, there’s something for everyone. You’re in for a real treat.”
