Isn’t it a shame that the wannabe warblings of the starstruck contestants who used to queue up for a shot at Stars In Their Eyes no longer form part of prime-time Saturday night telly?
‘Tonight, Matthew, I’m going to be....’ became a nationwide catchphrase as fans transformed themselves in a puff of smoke into their idols, and launched into a heartfelt tribute performance.
It may not get you on the telly, but Hemel Hempstead Theatre Company is bringing back the format for one night only this weekend.
Will anyone be able to top last year’s winner Damien Winchester, and his stunning take on Tina Turner?
The team behind Stars Night at the Boxmoor Playhouse are playing their cards close to their chests but they promise tons of talent and lots of laughs at this annual extravaganza.
Doors open at 7.30pm and tickets are £8 – you can book yours by visiting www.hemelhempstead theatrecompany.co.uk
