The cameras will be there to capture every moment, from audition to opening night as Amber achieves her dreams of West End stardom in the hotly anticipated stage show, 9 to 5 The Musical.
Chronicling every step of the journey, from vocal coaching to a rigorous rehearsal schedule, to curtain up itself, ITVBe viewers have a front row seat as Amber prepares to make 2019 her biggest year yet, with an intimate insight into the goings on in Amber’s professional and personal life.
Having trained in musical theatre before embarking upon her Love Island journey, Amber is going back to her first love, to rekindle her passion for the stage, working '9 to 5’ to make her big dream come to fruition.
Speaking about the special, Amber said “Performing on the West End has long been a dream of mine, and something I have been working towards my whole life. There really is no better role to play and having the opportunity to meet and work with Dolly Parton is another lifetime’s ambition fulfilled. I can’t wait to share this dream come true with ITVBe’s viewers.”
The cameras will also follow her as she heads to Nashville to meet Dolly Parton herself!
