When Talent Shows Go Horribly Wrong

When Talent Shows Go Horribly Wrong

Executive Producer
1st TX: 29th October 2017.
This 3 hour all-singing, all dancing special narrated by Kate Thornton features talent shows’ most epic fails. Sore losers, injuries, bust-ups with the judges, live disasters and behind-the-scenes scandals are just some of the things that have both shocked and entertained TV viewers through the years.
The show features the less-than-perfect moments from juggernauts The X Factor, Got Talent, Dancing on Ice, Opportunity Knocks and New Faces as well as some Horribly Wrong formats from across the pond. There are hilarious and sometimes jaw-dropping, first-hand accounts from the stars that were there including Pete Waterman, Arlene Phillips, Brenda Edwards, Danyl Johnson and Nicola Ward the singer who threw Popstars The Rivals into chaos by giving up her potential place in Girls Aloud at the 11th hour.
Highlights include Marie Osmond’s live on-air faint on America’s version of Strictly, Dancing with the Stars. Dancing on Ice judge Karen Barber speaks openly about her feud with TV’s Mr Nasty Jason Gardiner and the time he over-stepped the mark in front of millions of viewers. And a New Faces winner from 1986, Vinnie Cadman, talks about his struggles with fame and how he found himself living in a bin after his battles with the bottle.
