Scarlett Moffatt, Jess Wright, Diana Vickers lead line-up for new ITV show Celebrity Karaoke Club… with the competition featuring a twist!
Scarlett Moffatt, Jess Wright and Diana Vickers are leading the all-star cast set to appear on new ITV show Celebrity Karaoke Club.
ITV2 has commissioned the new six-part music entertainment show, which will see stars showcase their vocal talents in the autumn.
Audiences will however see a cheeky twist in the show – as the competitors will also act as judges of their fellow contestants and will vote a star out each week.

In between the rounds the stars can grab a cocktail at the bar, gossip with their co-stars during which they can form alliances against their co-stars.
The competition will be tougher as some of the stars have extensive backgrounds in the musical world while others are total vocal novices.
Jess has more than enough stage experience as she has enjoyed chart success herself, first with her group Lola and then solo.
In 2012, Jess signed a three-single deal with record label All Around the World and went to Marbella to film the music video for her debut single Dance All Night.

Diana meanwhile found fame as a competitor on The X Factor in 2008 and was a runner-up on the show – in a nod to her vocal abilities.
