Gary Barlow Has Hired A Former X Factor Judge For His New Talent Show

Let It Shine will air on BBC and will hunt for five male singers to create a musical version of Take That.

BBC lost the rights to reality show The Voice and has decided to replace it with a talent show run by Take That's Gary Barlow. Gary will be looking for five individuals to recreate Take That in a new musical inspired by the group.

Gary has now recruited former X Factor judge Danni Minogue to come on board as a mentor for the new show. He announced the news on his Twitter account, posting a throwback photo from 1991 of Danni with Take That.

The show will be hosted by both Graham Norton and Mel Giedroyc and joining Danni Minogue as mentors are actor Martin Kemp and Glee's Amber Riley.
