Corrie's Kym Marsh, Blur's Alex James and The Saturdays' Vanessa White set for classical reality TV show
It's not their aria of expertise... but that wont stop eight pop acts bidding for opera stardom.
Corries Kym Marsh is already clearing her throat in readiness for ITV1s new classical reality show, Popstar to Operastar.
Blurs Alex James, Bernie Nolan, McFlys Danny Jones, ex-Pop Idol star Darius Danesh, Shakespeares Sisters Marcella Detroit, Jimmy Osmond and Vanessa White from girl band The Saturdays complete the line-up.
The artists will be trained to perform world-famous opera songs with many singing in a different language for the first time. Welsh singing sensation Katherine Jenkins will mentor the stars, along with famed tenor Rolando Villazon.
And then in a bizarre twist they will be judged on their weekly efforts by rock legend Meat Loaf and makeover king and Classic FM DJ Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen.
