Michael Ball has been given a brand new ITV1 daytime show and plans on performing for his audience
Michael Ball has been given his own show.
The performer - best known for his work in musical theatre - will front an ITV1 daytime show from later this summer that will see him joined by celebrity guests and occasionally sing for his audience.
He said: "I'm hugely excited to be joining ITV. This show is a great challenge, which I hope will be lots of fun and feature lots of old friends as well as some new ones. I'm really looking forward to getting started."
ITV's director of Factual, Daytime and 'GMTV', Alison Sharman added: "Michael Ball is one of the country's best known and loved entertainers. His personality and charm will shine as he brings this new show to our summer schedule packing it with all the style of variety our daytime viewers enjoy."
Michael has had previous presenting experience as he co-presented 'This Morning' with Fern Britton during 2007 and stepped in to replace 'Dancing On Ice' judge Robin Collins on the ice panel for a week during this year's competition.
