Will Gary Barlow ‘Let it Shine’ This Christmas?

A new BBC talent show is to be recorded in Salford this Autumn and leading the show is none other than Take That’s Gary Barlow.


The show will see Gary search for performers to take part in the ‘Let it Shine’ competition. The aim of the competition is to find a new band to star in a stage show featuring the music of Take That.

Let It Shine will be shown on BBC One on Saturday nights and will be presented by Graham Norton and Mel Giedroyc.

Each week, Gary will be helped by three judges in his search for the best new talent the country has to offer.

Saturday night? Talent Show? Who will win the battle of the talent shows, Gary Barlow‘s Let it Shine or Simon Cowell’s X Factor?


Filming is due to start in the Autumn in Dock 10 Studios at MediaCityUK and will run for 8 weeks and will be filmed in front of a live audience – tickets are available via Lost In TV.
