News Image
ITV has announced details of a new one-off game show, hosted by Jonathan Ross.

Guess The Star will deliver celebrity performances with iconic disguises, and a 'play along at home' guessing game.

The host will be joined by three celebrity teams;

• Team Diversity – consisting of Jordan Banjo, Perri Kiely and Sam Craske
• Team Coronation Street – consisting of Anthony Cotton, Catherine Tyldesley and Sally Dynevor; and
• Team Daytime – consisting of Eamonn Holmes, Stacey Solomon and Judge Rinder.

Famous faces will be transformed before they perform as their favourite pop or music star; the teams will then compete against each other as they to 'Guess The Star' under the disguise.

Commenting on the show, Jonathan Ross said: "I am looking forward to some unforgettable performances, which isn't always a good thing."

Siobhan Greene, ITV's Head of Entertainment Commissioning, added: "Guess The Star has it all; transformations, iconic pop performances, a fantastic play along game and the great Jonathan Ross at the helm. What's not to love? I can't wait."

Guess The Star was commissioned by ITV's Head of Entertainment Commissioning Siobhan Greene and ITV Entertainment Commissioner Joe Mace. The one-off special will be made by ITV Studios and executive produced by Tom McLennan, ITV Studios' Director of Entertainment North, Pete Ogden and Saul Fearnley.
