STARSTRUCK: OLLY MURS RETURNS TO HOST SECOND SERIES OF ITV SINGING SHOW

Starstruck sees ordinary members of the public with an exceptional talent team up to transform into some of the world’s biggest music icons.



In April, ITV confirmed that it's ordered a second series to air in 2023 on ITV and ITVX (the new streaming platform launching later this year). TV Zone can now confirm that Olly Murs will return to host the second series.



The judging panel, which comprised of Adam Lambert, Sheridan Smith, Beverly Knight and Jason Manford, have not been confirmed for the second series, which is due to film in the coming weeks.


The format sees four teams of three battle it out each week to win the vote of the expert judging panel and virtual audience for a coveted place in the final and to be in with the chance of winning a whopping £50,000.




Each episode culminates in an exciting finale which sees the winning trio compete against each other for a place in the grand final and the chance to walk away with that life- changing sum of cash.



ITV's Head Of Entertainment, Katie Rawcliffe, said: "Starstruck has been a brilliant addition to our sparkling Saturday night schedule, with its stellar panel, stunning transformations and stand out vocals proving an instant hit amongst audiences."


Exec producer, Cat Lawson, added: “We couldn’t be prouder of this series. Full credit to our incredible host, panel and super talented contestants. We simply cannot wait to uncover more teams of secret superstars and give them the ultimate popstar glow-up.”



Series 1 of Starstruck is available on ITV Hub.
