ITV have announced a new talent show they hope will fill the void left by the axing of 'Dancing on Ice'
ITV has announced a new talent show to replace 'Dancing on Ice'.
'Get Your Act Together' will show celebrities revisiting talents they had as youngsters before becoming famous and viewers will get to watch as they're tutored in their chosen talent by a star-studded team of trainers who will attempt to rekindle their talents of years gone by.
An insider explained to the Daily Star newspaper: "It's about re-igniting stars' old talents.
"Maybe Sinitta learned magic as a kid so we'll bring in Paul Daniels to teach her to saw someone in half.
"Or perhaps Gino D'Acampo used to sing and we'll get Katherine Jenkins to give him lessons.
"Maybe Michelle Keegan did street dance so we'll get Ashley Banjo from Diversity to sharpen up her moves."
Celebrity contestants will have to perform their new-and-improved skills to a panel of judges who will decide which stars are impressive enough to appear in the grand final of the series.
ITV hope 'Get Your Act Together' will fill the void created by the loss of 'Dancing on Ice', which ran for nine years before the show was scrapped because of dwindling viewing figures.
The talent contest will be recorded later this year, appearing on screens in January 2015.
