Jane and Friends is the Channel 5 series which sees Jane McDonald invite stars of the stage, screen and music world to join her in some favourite songs. Employing Jane's very own live band and dancers, the series replicates the highlights of her spellbinding theatrical tours, with audience members participating in the fun, the frolics and sharing in Jane's secret surprises.

In the first episode, Jane hosts a party on the theme of musicals, with Duncan James, Gareth Gates and the cast of Mamma Mia the Musical joining her on the show.

There are sing-along hits, laughs, tears, huge surprises and massive prize giveaways as the diva of the north celebrates Britain's unsung heroes.

The series was filmed in 2019, before the Coronavirus pandemic and social distancing guidelines were introduced.
