The BBC is looking for dreadful singers from Manchester for the second season of I Can See Your Voice.

The hit show, hosted by Bolton’s finest Paddy McGuinness, challenges contestants to guess whether people are good at singing or not – without hearing a single note from them.

Instead they must use their intuition to weed out the good from the bad singers.

If they guess correctly they will win a cash prize and, if the last mystery singer turns out to be a good singer, the contestants can win £10,000.

Contestants are also given a helping hand from a team of celebrity judges; Jimmy Carr, Allison Hammond and Amanda Holden.

The first season of the series proved to be a huge success, with it enjoying 3.8 million viewers across its six episodes.

So fans were of course delighted when the second season was confirmed a couple of days ago.

Kate Phillips, Controller Entertainment Commissioning for the BBC, said: “We are so pleased that I Can See Your Voice will be returning.

“I know viewers have really enjoyed playing along with our very funny, frank panel, as we all hold our breaths for those memorable moments when a great or gruesome singer starts belting out a banger.”

And, not ones to waste any time, the casting calls have already been made.

Thames TV has today appealed for bad singers, good singers and contestants from across Greater Manchester to apply for the show.

A spokesperson said: “BBC1’s hit mystery singing gameshow I Can See Your Voice is back and we are looking for people to take part in the next series!

“This whole new take on the singing game show genre provides lots of music, comedy and play-along fun for the whole family to enjoy. 

“We are looking for bad singers, great singers and contestants to take part.”

Does your singing voice resemble a strangled cat? Do you know someone whose does? Or do you fancy taking part to win the cash? If so, you can apply here.

Jeremy Kyle is set to make his television come-back for the first time since his original show was pulled from the air.

The Jeremy Kyle Show made its debut in 2005 and enjoyed a seventeen-season run until it was axed in 2019 following the death of a contestant. 

Steve Dymond was found dead from a suspected morphine overdose just days after appearing on the show, where he allegedly ‘failed’ one of the infamous lie detector tests. 

Filming and broadcasting for The Jeremy Kyle Show was immediately suspended following the tragedy, with Kyle himself disappearing from screens. 

Channel 4

The host has stayed relatively under the radar and out of the spotlight only until recently, with him presenting various slots for TalkRadio and TalkTV since September last year.

But over three years on from the demise of The Jeremy Kyle Show, the host is now set to return to screens with his very own ‘straight-talking’ live television show.

Jeremy Kyle Live will make its debut on TalkTV next month on October 10th, and will see the ‘straight-talking voice of the people take on the issues that really matter’. 

In a statement, the fifty-seven-year-old said: “I’m so excited to be going back to live television from October 10th. Sitting in for Piers [Morgan] over the summer has given me a taste for what the new show will be.

Jeremy Kyle Live will be making sense of the stories that matter; speaking the language of the British people and providing practical help as we all try and navigate our way through current times.

“I can’t wait to be a part of TalkTV’s amazing new primetime lineup.”

A spokesperson for TalkTV previously said in a statement: “TalkTV’s primetime schedule will also be simulcast on TalkRadio, and TalkRadio’s roster of daytime talent, including Julia Hartley-Brewer, Mike Graham, Ian Collins and Jeremy Kyle, will be broadcast on talkTV.

“TalkRadio has seen fast growth in recent years across all platforms and has been broadcasting successfully on talkRadio TV since last year.”

Jeremy Kyle Live will air daily on TalkTV from October 10th.

Ant and Dec have announced that there will be a new version of I’m A Celebrity held in South Africa. 

Sharing the exciting news onto Twitter, the Geordie duo said the new series would feature a selection of ‘favourite celebrities from the last twenty years’ brought together in a brand new setting.

In their announcement video posted onto social media, Dec said: “It’s probably the worst kept secret in television, but we can confirm we’re doing a very special series of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! in South Africa!”

Showing off the South African scenery behind him, Dec added: “We’re here, it’s going to be your favourite celebrities from the last twenty years who are going back in to do it one more time.”

Ant and Dec said in their caption that the series would be ‘coming to your tellies’ at some point in 2023. 

No specific names from the past twenty years of I’m A Celebrity have been confirmed for the special show, though announcements are expected in the coming months.

Their announcement comes after it was confirmed that the show, which sees celebrities camp out and take part in notorious ‘bush tucker trials’, will be returning to the Australian jungle for its 2022 series.

The series has been set in Gwrych Castle in Wales for the last two years as a result of Australia’s strict Covid-19 travel restrictions, but now Australia’s borders are open the show will be heading back down under, ITV announced earlier this year.

ITV’s director of content Rosemary Newell confirmed the news to The Mirror, saying in a statement: “We expect I’m A Celebrity to return in Australia in November, when it will generate audience over 11 million.”

Ant and Dec had previously expressed their own hopes for the series to return to its original Australian location, with Dec telling The One Show: “We love Wales but you know, Australia is its home and we’d like to get back there if we can.”

I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here first aired in 2002, where it was filmed in Tully, Queensland. It then moved to Murwillumbah, New South Wales, where it remained until the Covid pandemic.

The ten-part series will follow a group of young people living in a hospice as they search for signs of life after death

Netflix has released the trailer for its brand new horror series courtesy of the creator of Haunting of Hill House.

The Midnight Club is based on the 1994 novel of the same title by Christopher Pike, and will tell the chilling tale of a gang of young adults all living together in a hospice.

The group meet up every night in the library to tell each other sinister stories, as well as look out for signs of life after death.

One night, the friends make a pact to make contact from beyond the grave once they’ve passed away from their terminal illnesses – but when one of the group does die, strange happenings begin to occur within the hospice.

Netflix

Netflix’s official synopsis for the ten-part series reads: “At a hospice for terminally ill young adults, eight patients come together every night at midnight to tell each other stories – and make a pact that the next of them to die will give the group a sign from the beyond.”

The series has been produced, directed and written by The Haunting of Hill House writer Mike Flanagan and The Haunting of Bly Manor writer Leah Fong.

Actors include Adia, Igby Rigney, Ruth Codd, Aya Furukawa, Annarah Shephard, William Chris Sumpter and Sauriyan Sapkota, with Heather Langenkamp as the enigmatic doctor presiding over Rotterdam Home.

Flanagan said at the start of the year that he had ‘been dreaming of this project’ since he was a teenager. 

He tweeted back in February: “I’ve been dreaming of this project since I was a teenager, and I cannot wait to embark on yet another adventure with my @intrepid partner in crime (and television) Trevor Macy, as well as the fantastic crew we’ve been cultivating.”

As well as his work on The Haunting of Hill House and The Haunting of Bly Manor, Flanagan is also celebrated for his adaptations of Stephen King’s Gerald’s Game and Doctor Sleep, the chilling sequel to The Shining.

The Midnight Club will be released on Netflix next month on October 7th.
