Starstruck will see ordinary members of the public transform into some of the world’s biggest music icons.
Created by Remarkable Television for ITV and ITV Hub, the series sees four teams of three battle it out each week to win the vote of an expert judging panel and virtual audience for a coveted place in the final and to be in with the chance of winning £50,000.
Members of the public will be transformed into their most beloved music star for one night only. They’ll team up as trios to give the performance of a lifetime. With an expert glam team to oversee their transformation, impressive staging, and a spectacular sound and light show, the singing stars will get the complete ‘superstar experience’.
Each episode will culminate in an exciting finale that sees the winning trio compete against each other for a place in the grand final and the chance to walk away with the huge cash prize.
Beverley Knight said: “Every show we get to witness ordinary people emulate extraordinary icons on a huge scale and I’m so here for it! I’m looking forward to hearing and seeing those spectacular transformations and being a cheerleader for every contestant.”
Katie Rawcliffe, Head of Entertainment Commissioning at ITV said: “I can’t wait to see which talented members of the public leave our extraordinary panel Starstruck. With fabulous transformations, lots of fun and the brilliant Olly Murs at the helm it’s going to be hugely entertaining for the whole family.”

And with some spectacular transformations ready to be unleashed, there’s going to be big surprises, huge performances and lots of laughs along the way.”
