ITV’s new Saturday night gameshow Starstruck, in which members of the public are transformed into famous popstars to compete for a cash prize, has certainly pulled off some interesting makeovers in recent weeks – with last night’s episode being no exception.
The show, which has drawn comparisons to the classic programme Stars in Their Eyes, sees three individuals perform as their idols, with one of the trio going through to the grand final if their team is picked by the judges as the favourites.
The competition is hosted by musician and former X Factor star Olly Murs. Meanwhile, comedian and musical theatre actor Jason Manford; Cilla actress Sheridan Smith, singer Beverley Knight and new Queen frontman Adam Lambert are the panel casting their eye over the lookalikes.
One team on yesterday’s show decided to impersonate Take That star Gary Barlow, but while some performers undergo major changes to get into character – a trio taking on “Human” singer Rag’n’Bone Man even went as far as to wear temporary tattoos on their face – viewers seemed unimpressed with the three Barlows:
