All Star Musicals airs on Sunday night on ITV – here’s a first look at the new special.
After previously airing in 2017 and 2019, All Star Musicals returns with a brand new show for 2021.

After an intense time in training, they’ll each take to the stage to perform a classic musical number, supported by a West End chorus line, hoping to impress a panel of judges and virtual audience.
Hosted by John Barrowman, joining Elaine on the panel will be returning Trevor Dion-Nicholas (Hamilton, Aladdin) and Samantha Barks (Les Miserables, Frozen).

Andrew Lloyd Webber himself will also make an appearance, speaking to host John about the theatre industry amidst the pandemic.
