Comedian Keith Lemon and Queen of the Jungle explode on to Saturday nights with an hour of inspired lunacy as they challenge two teams of celebrities to sing whilst being distracted by a series of hilarious, frightening, and downright ridiculous challenges in this spectacular new comedy entertainment show, SING IF YOU CAN. And it’s all in the name of charity.
It’s a celebrity singing contest like no other. There’s only one rule, expect the unexpected – snakes, gunge, electrocutions, performing dogs, bouncy castles, explosions, stunt riders and….eels. No surprise that the celebrity contestants spend as much time laughing and screaming as they do singing.
In the second episode of this brand new series, soul diva Shelia Ferguson, actor Ricky Groves and singer Brenda Edwards compete against Hollyoaks favourite Gemma Merna, actor Shaun Williamson and England rugby union star Matt Stevens as they attempt to deliver modern hits and classic crowd-pleasers whilst taking on a series of daft and extraordinary challenges designed to put them off.
Two brave celebrities go head to head performing Blondie’s ‘One Way Or Another’ whilst taking on The Walk of Fear, which contains five hideous surprises including maggots and sewer gunge.
Other stars will attempt to sing Aretha Franklin classic ‘Respect’ as they face a daredevil bike team causing a commotion around them and tackle Elton John’s I’m Still Standing whilst joined on a bouncy castle with school kids, gymnasts and Morris Dancers. Plus, find out if Shaun and Ricky can hold their nerve performing whilst being waxed…
Sing If You Can also offers viewers the chance to see celebrities well and truly out of their comfort zone. During the series, singer and actor Ray Quinn debuts as a rapper
Presenter Caroline Flack, actor John Thomson and comedian Rob Rouse head up this week’s expert panel offering their take on the night’s extraordinary proceedings. But ultimately the fate of the celebrities lies in the hands of the studio audience as they decide which team goes through to the end game. The stakes couldn’t be higher as the losing team’s captain gets dropped from the rafters into a supersize fish tank!
In the end game, the winning team faces the ultimate of challenge of staying on board a giant inflatable revolving record player, the Money Spinner. The more they spin, the more they win for Teenage Cancer Trust.
