The likes of Joel Dommett, Roman Kemp and Judi Love will take part in the new series which sees celebrities unleash their vocals as they head into a karaoke bar... with a twist!
The six-part series will air this autumn as and whether their voice is like Mariah Carey or Mariah Scarey, in this competition it’s all about the love of karaoke and commanding a stage - in everything from epic solo performances to group battles.
Those taking part are television personality Scarlett Moffatt, comedian and Loose Women panelist Judi Love, comedian and TV presenter Joel Dommett, drag queen Courtney Act, TV and radio presenters Roman Kemp and Melvin Odoom, Ibiza Weekender star David Potts, reality TV star Jessica Wright, comedian and impressionist Luke Kempner, singer and actress Diana Vickers, RuPaul's Drag Race UK star Baga Chipz, Love Island favourite Samira Mighty and singer-songwriter Tallia Storm.
But there’s a twist, because the people they will have to impress are their fellow competitors, every celebrity karaoke singer is also a karaoke judge. At the end of every episode they’ll be sending someone home, with new celebrities joining the competition also hoping to be crowned the karaoke king or queen.
In between the rounds the stars can grab a cocktail at the bar or have a good old gossip about their rivals in the toilets, because when the singing stops, the competition really begins. Can the stars form alliances with their fellow competitors and let popularity propel them to victory? Or will they rely on their performance to steal the top spot?
ITV’s Head of Digital Channels and Acquisitions Paul Mortimer, said “We’re thrilled about the arrival of Celebrity Karaoke Club on ITV2.The cast of celebs will be well-known to ITV2's audience, though not necessarily for their singing! However, they are sure to entertain viewers with some impressive and hilarious performances this autumn, as they battle it out to be crowned the ultimate karaoke champion.”
Whilst Monkey’s Creative Director and Executive Producer, Will Macdonald added “Ludicrous times demand ludicrous entertainment, and that’s what this show delivers thanks to a righteous collective of celebrities, a free bar and the world’s best karaoke machine. What could possibly go wrong? As Starship nearly said: Nothing’s Gonna Stop Them Now.”
