Some good news for classic TV fans, ‘Stars In Their Eyes’ - y’know, the show where Brenda from the Tesco checkout would disappear behind some dry ice and re-emerge looking a dead ringer for Britney Spears - is rumoured to be coming back to our screens.
This wouldn’t be the first show ITV have revamped, as Holly Willoughby recently took over the relaunched version of Cilla Black’s show ‘Surprise, Surprise’ - though sadly she’s yet to sing the theme tune herself like our Cilla used to - while Stephen Mulhern now presents a new version of ‘Catchphrase’.
We think it would be great to see the show coming back, but while it’s all well and good watching Ted the road-sweeper chuck a wig on and pretend to be Elvis for two and a half minutes, what we’re really excited about is the prospect of a celebrity series.
During the original run of ‘Celebrity Stars In Their Eyes’ we got to see Denise Welch taking on the Petula Clark staple ‘Downtown’, while ‘Coronation Street’ star Vicky Entwistle later tackled the Björk hit ‘It’s Oh So Quiet’ with eyebrow-raising results.
Yes, those are real things that actually happened.
We promise you we are not making this up…
