Michael Underwood will host ITV’s brand new entertainment show Let Me Entertain You, a six-part series showcasing extraordinary and hilarious all singing, all dancing performances from the Great British public. The first episode is on Saturday  26th April at 6pm.
 
Anyone at home could be the star on Let Me Entertain You as it showcases the viewers' own singing and dancing clips alongside the funniest and most astonishing videos the internet has to offer; from bad dancing dads and body popping zoo keepers to cute toddlers giving it their best Beyonce, to the craziest homemade Lady Gaga parodies out there. 
 
With hilarious VT packages, hidden camera surprises, lip sync showdowns, there’s only one star in this show – the ITV viewer.
 
Contributors are invited to submit their funny, entertaining and down right ridiculous videos a twww.itv.com/letmeentertainyou, and whether you’re a true talent or a toe curling try hard, you could have families across Britain clapping or cringing along.
 
Each week, Michael Underwood will preside over viewer entries and the best in online user generated content.
 
Michael said "Nowadays, anyone with a smart phone can record their singing and dancing talents at any time. No longer do these moments of genius need to be hidden away on phones and computers, as we're going to give the viewers a chance to share their performing skills with the world. I cannot wait to see the incredible videos and the slightly strange ones too. Let Me Entertain You is all about making the viewers the stars."

International Watch| Q’s One Night Stand – A New Web Series (NSFW)

0

Warning: Contains explicit content and language

Check out this new web series from the US featuring Brit actress Gabrielle Ryan. 

No drunk chicks, no ho's, and they can't be from Staten Island (it's a long story). These are a few of the rules Quinton has for one night stands. He's no Romeo and he's far from an Adonis. He's just a guy committed to being the perfect boyfriend — for one night. Each webisode we meet a new woman and they're as diverse as the city in which this adult comedy is set — New York. But beware. Quinton may look like he's living a life most men dream about, but one never knows what lurks behind a woman's bedroom door.

Let us know what you think!
