'Stars In Their Eyes' To Return To ITV With Harry Hill In Place Of Presenter Matthew Kelly?

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.

The singing show, which gave us the iconic catchphrase ‘Tonight, Matthew, I’m going to be...’, could be returning to Saturday night telly, but with Harry Hill at the helm, according to Forbes.

‘Stars In Their Eyes’ was previously hosted by Matthew Kelly, though Davina McCall and Cat Deeley later presented it towards the end of its run.

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’.

An ITV spokesperson told Forbes: “We are talking to Harry about projects, and we love working with him, but there are no confirmed programmes commissioned at this stage.”

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.

And, of course, who could forget Carol Vorderman’s rendition of Cher’s ‘The Shoop Shoop Song’, complete with a leather-look bustier and giant wig.

We promise you we are not making this up…
