TV presenter Nick Knowles and musician and presenter Myleene Klass are set to host BBC One's new weekend entertainment show, Last Choir Standing.
They will be joined by a panel of music experts – Russell Watson, Sharon D. Clarke and Suzi Digby – as they search for choirs that combine the power, passion and performance necessary to be crowned the nation's favourite choir.
The show will see Myleene return to her first love - music. She began playing the piano and her grandfather's violin at the age of four. She studied Voice at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, before winning a scholarship to the Royal Academy of Music where she later graduated. She continues to be a prominent name in the music world, with a top-three solo album to her name.
Nick Knowles is well known to TV viewers as the host of DIY SOS and City Hospital. A talented presenter, producer and director, he has also presented the National Lottery gameshow Who Dares Wins. Never one to shy away from a challenge, he went to Nairobi for Comic Relief and presented a heartrending report from Zambia for Sport Relief.
Myleene said: "I'm really excited to be involved in the search to find the nation's favourite choir. We're going to be seeing such a wide range of choirs with different styles and personalities – there will definitely be something to suit everyone's taste."
Nick said: "The public will be treated to some fantastic performances from all the choirs, and it will ultimately be up to them to decide who will be the Last Choir Standing. This will be entertainment television at its best – getting the whole country involved."
Last Choir Standing starts on BBC One in July. From 60 choirs at the auditions, the panel of judges will decide which 15 will go through to the studio heats. Six choirs will then make it through to the live shows where the judges and the public will vote each week for who they want to save until there is only one - the Last Choir Standing.
