TV Times - - News -

Mel Giedroyc may have an­nounced she’s quit­ting The Great Bri­tish Bake Off, but here she is tak­ing cen­trestage in the first snap from

Gary Bar­low’s up­com­ing BBC1 ta­lent search, Let It Shine.

the 48-year-old funny girl is to co-host next year’s take that-themed sat­ur­day-night ex­trav­a­ganza with fel­low co­me­dian Gra­ham nor­ton.

Gary, Martin Kemp and dan­nii Minogue will act as judges as they seek to cre­ate a band who’ll join the cast of a planned stage show fea­tur­ing the mu­sic of Mr Bar­low’s now grown-up boy­band.

Mel says: ‘this brings so many of the things i love to­gether – singing, danc­ing, Gary Bar­low and Gra­ham nor­ton. what’s not to love? i can’t wait to meet the singers and see the per­for­mances.’ Glee star am­ber ri­ley will also fea­ture, of­fer­ing ex­pert ad­vice to the wannabes.

the Beeb hopes Let It Shine will match the rat­ings of

The Voice, which has switched to itv.
