Strictly Come Dancing may have waltzed off for another year - with MediaCityUK based BBC Sports reporter Ore Oduba taking the glory - but with The Voice now an ITV show, what's up next for Saturday nights?

The answer is Let It Shine, a brand new entertainment show with Gary Barlow at the helm.

Launching on Saturday 7th January - and right up against ITV's first series of The Voice - Let It Shine will go on the hunt for five male singers to play the leads in a Take That musical launching in 2017.

Joining Barlow on the judging panel are X Factor veteran Dannii Minogue and Spandau Ballet singer Martin Kemp, and the show will be fronted by chat show supremo Graham Norton and former Bake Off host Mel Giedroyc.

The show has been filmed at Dock 10's Studios at MediaCityUK.

A brand new trailer has given a taste of what to expect:
