Even Bet­ter Than The Real Thing

BBC1, Satur­day 16 Septem­ber, 7pm

Heat (UK) - - Front Page - Ja­son Arnopp

Yes, this new 60-minute spe­cial does look rather like a re­boot of ITV’S Stars In Their Eyes, which fun­ny­man Harry Hill had a spir­ited stab at re­viv­ing in 2015, but that’s prob­a­bly a rea­son to tune in. This time around, the ever-bril­liant Paddy Mcguin­ness takes a break from the Isle of Fer­nando’s to host the show, which gath­ers the world’s (al­legedly) finest tribute artists and pits them against each other. Tonight, we’ll see im­i­ta­tions of the likes of Whit­ney Hous­ton, Ge­orge Michael, Amy Wine­house and Bruno Mars. Just for some added spice, the show will also pair stars up for sur­pris­ing duets, so we can close our eyes a lit­tle and pre­tend it’s real. Even if the acts turn out to be dodgy, we trust Paddy to make us laugh, so it’s a win-win sce­nario.

Looks noth­ing like Paddy Mcguin­ness
