Speaking about hosting Starstruck, Olly said: “I love it. I’ve always wanted to do something new and find something that matches my personality, something where I can be me and cheeky.

“I wanted it to be something lighthearted and entertaining. I think that’s where Starstruck ticks all the boxes. It was a heavenly match as far as what I wanted to do. It’s just a show fun to be a part of and everyone is great to work with.”

The new series will see the UK mainstream having the unique chance to shed their normal persona and become a global superstar.

On the show, we’ll see people transform from Amy Winehouse to Ariana Grande, Lionel Richie to Lady Gaga, Marvin Gaye to Michael Buble, and many more in between.

Judge Adam Lambert said, “I’m so excited to be involved with Starstruck. I loved the idea from the moment I heard about it, and it’s going to be a lot of fun.

“I can’t wait to see people transform into their idols! After the year everyone has been through, let’s unite through creativity and music and have a great time!”

So who will have what it takes to wow the judges and leave them Starstruck?

Starstruck starts this Saturday (February 12) on ITV at 8.30pm
