They're not taking the piss are they? This isn't a spoof show is it? *checks transmission date*

Anyway

The lineup and judging panel for new ITV1 series Popstar To Operastar has been confirmed.
Hosted by Myleene Klass and Alan Titchmarsh, the show will feature ten famous popstars training to perform famous opera songs.

The celebrities taking part include Blur bassist Alex James, veteran singer Bernie Nolan, McFly's Danny Jones and Pop Idol star Darius Campbell. Jimmy Osmond, ex-Hear'Say singer and Coronation Street actress Kym Marsh, Shakespeare's Sister star Marcella Detroit and Vanessa White from girlband The Saturdays complete the lineup.

All the contestants will be coached by mentors Katherine Jenkins and Rolando Villazon before performing live on Friday night, when one hopeful will be voted off each week.
Jenkins and Villazon will be joined on the judging panel by Meatloaf and Classic FM DJ Laurence Llewlyn-Bowen.

Britain's Got Talent stars Susan Boyle and Paul Potts, X Factor runner-up Rhydian and opera group Il Divo are rumoured to have been lined up as special guest performers.

|I know, it all seems a tad bizarro doesn't it? Not entirely convinced it's going ahead

But *sigh* guess I'll watch first episode if only to see Darius (now Darius Campbell? WTF?) make a hash of it

Campbell? what's that all about?! i'd forgotten he was in it, i'll have to tune in to see how well he's looking.

it does all seem a bit of a cruel joke.

I Love Meatloaf but he should not be on the Panel and I have not heard of that curly haired guy who sings with Katherine in the advert.
