Just The Two Of Us is back - nine celebrities sing for survival on BBC One



Introduction


It's back! The duet singing showdown, Just The Two Of Us, returns for a brand new series on BBC One on 2 January 2007.

 

Nine celebrities will be singing for survival when they are paired with some of the world's biggest recording stars to perform live every night.

 

The celebrities stepping up to the mike are:

 

Casualty's Luke Bailey

 

EastEnders' John Bardon

 

Former England cricketer Mark Butcher

 

Strictly Come Dancing's Brendan Cole

 

Masterchef's Gregg Wallace

 

Hollyoaks' Loui Batley

 

Watchdog's Julia Bradbury

 

Blue Peter doyen Janet Ellis

 

and former EastEnder Hannah Waterman.

 

Pairing them are four singing sensations new to the show:

 

Sarah Brightman

 

Tony Christie

 

Carol Decker

 

and Marti Pellow.

 

Plus, five Just The Two Of Us regulars are returning:

 

Jocelyn Brown

 

Natasha Hamilton

 

Beverley Knight

 

Alexander O'Neal

 

and Russell Watson.

 

Glamorous husband and wife team Tess Daly and Vernon Kay also return to host the show, guiding the celebrity songbirds through the emotional rollercoaster of intense daily rehearsals, live performances, the critique of the judging panel and the triumphs and tribulations of the uncompromising viewer vote.

 

A rigorous training programme will see the professionals put their partners' vocal skills to the test as they prepare to step out on stage and fight it out for the Just The Two Of Us crown.

 

Each night they will perform a different song in a different genre including: songs for stage and screen, swing, pop, rock and soul.

 

They will be judged by a panel of industry experts and then viewers will have the chance to vote for their favourite.

 

Packed with all the glitz and glamour of a live music entertainment show, Just The Two Of Us not only guarantees exclusive performances from the pro-celebrity couples but also promises a series of unique professional collaborations.

 

Executive Producer Sumi Connock says: "We've got a brand spanking new show complete with our own results show which will include its own special surprises.

 

"Each night will be packed with new and classic songs accompanied by a 16-piece live band in the studio.

 

"Once again, the pressure of performing live will challenge our celebrities to perform in ways that they've never done before."

 

Martin Scott, Acting Creative Head and Editor of BBC Format Entertainment, said: "The Just The Two Of Us winning combination of our pro-celebrity duos training and performing together ensures an emotional and dramatic journey.

 

"One minute it's complete euphoria and, the next, tears and desperation.

 

"Just The Two Of Us will maintain the standards set by the BBC One hits like Strictly guaranteeing a vibrant and exciting entertainment show."

 

The last series hit the headlines with the electrifying performances of Matt Allright and Jocelyn Brown, the extraordinary showmanship of Mark Moraghan and Natasha Hamilton, and Penny Smith and Curtis Stigers' unique interpretation of their songs.

 

But it was Sian Reeves and Russell Watson who captured the hearts and votes of the nation after an unforgettable emotional journey.

 

But who will follow in their footsteps and be crowned Just The Two Of Us Champions 2007?

 

Just The Two Of Us returns from Tuesday 2 January 2007, every night on BBC One until the grand finale on Sunday 7 January. Each live show will be followed by a separate results show.
