Lulu has been confirmed as the second guest judge on BBC One’s brand new entertainment show Let It Shine.
The singer will join Gary Barlow, Martin Kemp and Dannii Minogue as guest judge for the second stage of Let It Shine, Barlow’s new singing format to find a new band to appear in the West End show based on the songs of Take That.
The new BBC One entertainment show is set to launch in the new year on Saturday nights, in a similar spot to what The Voice UK previously had.
Lulu said this weekend: “I have always loved working and sharing in the success story that is Take That.
So the chance to bring my experience and knowledge of west end musicals, to help cast for a new show, feels a privilege and I am thrilled to do it.”
Lulu will join the three judges for the second stage of the competition which will see the boys perform in groups for the very first time in an all-singing and all-dancing extravaganza.
Lulu, who famously collaborated with Gary on Take That hit Relight My Fire, will give her expert opinion as she helps the judges whittle down the groups to five final bands who will go forward to compete in the live shows.
The overall winners will join the cast of a brand new touring musical which will feature the music of Take That.
Announcements regarding the other guest judges will be announced shortly.
Let It Shine will air on BBC One in the New Year.
