A Night For The Emergency Services

News Image
ITV has commissioned a one-off special this Christmas, A Night For The Emergency Services.

The special, hosted by Ashley Banjo and Diversity, will feature members of the emergency services performing alongside special celebrity guests including Michael Ball and Alfie Boe, Leona Lewis and Tokio Myers.

Following a year beset with national tragedy, the appreciation for the emergency services has never been higher. This show aims to celebrate the incredible work they do, and thank them. The show's audience will be made up solely of emergency service staff.

As well as honouring their dedication and the life-risking work they do, the emergency services will also get to showcase some of their talents, performing on the show in orchestras, choirs, singers, dancers and a magician.

Ashley Banjo said: "Our emergency services are incredible. They do so much for us and it's fantastic to not only put on a show for them, but to perform alongside some of the talented people within the emergency services to show the nation's thanks and appreciation for the work they do. It's going to be a great night."

A Night For The Emergency Services was commissioned by Siobhan Greene for ITV, and will be produced by ITV Studios. It will be executive produced by Nicholas Steinberg and Lee Connolly and directed by Ollie Bartlett.
