The upcoming series will see a brand-new cast of famous faces take to the stage to perform musical hits from a variety of West End shows.

Now, ITV have revealed exactly who will be taking part this Spring – including a soap actress, an England rugby player and a James Bond star.

Corrie’s Lisa, 49, who has played the role of Beth Tinker in the ITV show since she joined the cast in 2011, admitted it was a “dream come true” to be cast.

“All Star Musicals is a dream for me, both personally and professionally,” she said, teasing to fans that she “couldn’t wait to take to the stage”.

She will be joined by former EastEnders actress Jacqueline, 29, who is set to perform a musical number that “everyone knows and loves”.

Rugby ace Danny Care – who made his England team debut in 2008 – is also set to turn his attentions from the pitch to the stage with the new venture.

Likely far out of his comfort zone, the sporting star admitted he is “really excited to be doing something completely different” from the scrum.

The final three cast members are made up of Colin Salmon, who played Charles Robinson in three 007 films, wildlife host Michaela Strachan and GMB’s Alex, 40.

After intensive training by theatre superstars Elaine Paige, Samantha Barks and Trevor Dion Nicholas, the stars will perform their chosen West End ensemble.

Audiences can expect hits from Frozen, Les Misérables, 42nd Street and Hamilton.

GMB presenter Alex revealed his upcoming stage show venture live on air on Thursday morning, as he told his co-stars about his secret talent.

“I’m so excited to be taking part in All Star Musicals,” he was heard saying on the ITV breakfast show. “I’ve got an absolutely huge song from an awesome musical which is currently in the West End.

“All I can say for now is that it’s got a lot of words, and I need to get practising. That’s all you’re getting for now.”

The star looked towards a Hamilton poster towards the end of the clip, giving the game away that his song of choice could be hit song ‘My Shot’.

“Do we even know if he can sing?” host Kate Garraway asked showbiz reporter Richard Arnold, who responded: “He has got some pipes on him.”

Jacqueline was the first to be announced as part of the ASM cast, after she was due to make her West End debut in A Christmas Carol in 2020.

A TV insider said: “Jacqueline has a belting voice and she loves singing and it’s always been her first love.

“There are very few credible shows in which actresses can show off their voice on primetime telly these days, so when ITV asked if she wanted to do All Star Musicals she jumped at the chance. She blew everyone away.”

Jacqueline and the rest of the cast will be joined on stage by John Barrowman, who returns as the show’s host, despite fans calling for him to be axed.

The star, 54, who was a Dancing On Ice judge, lost his spot on the ITV programme after sexual misconduct claims resurfaced.

In a statement, an ITV spokesperson insisted it was not the end of the line for his telly duties on the channel – revealing he would continue on ASM.
