John Barrowman and Elaine Paige set to host All Star Musicals

We love a show all about musicals so we’re delighted to hear the news that All Star Musicals will be returning this year after last airing in 2017. Hosting the 2019 return of the talent show is I’m a celebrity star, John Barrowman and musical legend, Elaine Paige.

The show will see seven celebrities take on a famous musical song and perform the number live in for a studio audience. The celebrities will have a masterclass in theatre, before performing at London's iconic Palladium, where they will be judged by the audience. The last All Star Musicals special, which aired in 2017, saw the likes of soap stars Lucy Fallon and Michael Parr, and Bridget Jones's Diary actress Sally Phillips compete.

Vowing to make the programme "fabulous", 51-year-old John Barrowman said: "I can't wait to bring something fabulous to the TV screens, working with new friends and teaming up with some special old friends, this should be a great night of entertainment - let's make 'All Star Musicals' Fabulous."

John is no stranger to musical theatre and has starred in many musicals on the West End and Broadway over the years, including The Phantom of the Opera, Sunset Boulevard and Matador. Co-host, 70-year-old musical theatre legend Elaine Paige added: "All Star Musicals is the perfect opportunity for me to channel two of my greatest passions - musical theatre and mentoring."


"I'm looking forward to following the celebrities on their journey to performing on London's most prestigious stage, and of course it's an added bonus to have a front row seat on the night itself!"
