In this BIG, prime time, entertainment format 8 lip-syncing and back-flipping popstars are challenged to turn themselves into fully-fledged opera stars. Our stars are under the expert eyes of two of the biggest names in Opera - Catherine Jenkins and Rolando Bloom, but even with all this help have they got what it takes to wow a crowd with an aria? The UK version of POPSTAR TO OPERASTAR series 1 features Meat Loaf as one of the four judges and includes contestants, Alex James (Blur), Marcella Detroit (Shakespeare’s Sister), Vanessa White (The Saturdays), Jimmy Osmond, Bernie Nolan (The Nolan Sisters), Kym Marsh (Hear'Say), Danny Jones (McFly) and Darius.

Co-production Renegade/ITV Studios/Globe.
