Stars In Their Eyes is Back (Again)

ITV to replace X Factor with the show

I remember everyone was looking forward to the revival last time and then totally shocked how Harry Hill seemed to ruin it all. To be fair, I didn't think it was as bad as everybody made out it was, but it certainly seemed more of a comedy than a competition. I hope whoever is picked to host, isn't one of ITV's familiar faces.

Is it a straight revival this time, unlike the Harry Hill one, which was basically a piss take?

I thought Harry’s version was good.

Rylan’s got the beard, so I suspect it will be him. For the same reason I would have suggested it might Philip Schofield but he doesn’t need his now.

Rebooting a reboot. Ideas are running thin.

Just flagging this up as I already predict this is going to be less appreciated than it deserves to be.

Yes and like most revivals, people will be bored of it by episode 3

His version killed any nostalgia I had for the show.

Sorry you feel that way. But some of us did like it.

I'm sorry, but what a strange reaction. This is like if I decided never to watch any classic Simpsons episodes again because I saw a new one and didn't like it.


For what it's worth, I thought Harry's version was a strange mixture of the original format and Harry's take on it, and ultimately didn't satisfy either people with nostalgia for Stars in Their Eyes or Harry Hill fans. Alien Fun Capsule ended up being a much better follow up to TV Burp. However, I imagine I'd still rather prefer to watch Harry Hill's version than whatever this will be.

No many though to be fair, it was awful, hence why it was axed.

Stars is meant to be about the singers, not the host - Harry's version had the focus too much on him. It wasn't the right vehicle for him.

It's kind of harking back to the three series that Leslie did with panel making an appearance.

If it's done right and ITV don't feel like mucking about with it, this may turn out to be very good.

It also needs the right host and currently that's someone out with of the current James Grant/ITV roster.
