Random Rewind: Change Your Tune, ITV

Random Rewind: we look back at some the best, and occasionally worst, entertainment shows from the past decade.

Change Your Tune

2018, ITV

Change Your Tune was a primetime ITV musical gameshow, presented by Baz Ashmawy, and ran for one series of six episodes in Spring 2018. Each episode sees some of Britain's worst singers undergo extensive vocal training to improve their singing voices for the change of winning up to £10,000.

Viewers saw the contestants perform with their 'bad voice', before returning moments later (in reality, it was filmed weeks apart) to perform with their new, hopefully better, voice.

The show failed to gain an audience in its original slot of 7pm on Sundays. Half way into the series, ITV pulled it from the schedule and was rescheduled weeks later in a much earlier 4pm slot.

The final episode drew in an audience of just 300,000. It was not commissioned for a second series.

ITV's Carolyn McCall confirmed: “While overall our schedule is performing strongly, not all our programmes performed as we had hoped so some, for example Change Your Tune, Our Shirley Valentine Summer and The Big Audition, will not return.”
