Radio and TV stalwart Zoe Ball will host the series with a panel of judges made up of comedian and TV personality Alan Carr; singer songwriter Jessie Ware; Olivier Award Winner Amber Riley and Samantha Barks, star of Frozen in London’s West End.

Mamma Mia! I Have a Dream will air on ITV1 and ITVX this autumn with an exact start date to be announced.

Amidst the stunning scenery of picturesque Greek islands, viewers will be treated to a captivating show where contestants receive guidance and mentorship from guest industry experts.

They’ll partake in distinctive workshops focusing on singing, dancing, and acting, alongside live performances, all in pursuit of landing these coveted roles.

The contest will end with a live grand-finale, broadcast from a theatre in London’s West End.

Host Zoe Ball said: “Our contestants are going to go through quite the journey, believe me, but like the show and like the movie, there is going to be song, there is going to be dance and there’s going to be fun in the sun. And we cannot wait for you to come on that journey with us.”

Creator and global producer of Mamma Mia! and co-executive producer of Mamma Mia! I Have a Dream, Judy Craymer will also be on hand to offer her expertise.

Judy Craymer said: “I know there is a wealth of talent out there and I’m so thrilled that – with the help of these fabulous judges and ‘Rock Chick Supremo’ host Zoe Ball – we will find the musical stars of the future to appear in Mamma Mia!’s landmark 25th year.”
