Father and son pair from Sussex look to win £10,000 on hit BBC game show I Can See Your Voice featuring Jimmy Carr and Amanda Holden
This week’s episode of I Can See Your Voice will see a father and son pair from Sussex use their detective skills to try to spot the imposters and win £10,000.
But with a line up including a singing boxer, actor and doctor, it may be harder than they think! Expert Bollywood dancers Shash and Saaj from Crawley also teach the celebrity investigators how to bust a move.
They will be calling upon the expertise of celebrity investigators including king of comedy Jimmy Carr, the inimitable Alison Hammond and national treasure Amanda Holden. This week’s guest music star is singer songwriter Ronan Keating.
Saaj says: “We had a fantastic experience on the show which was definitely a nail-biter. Paddy and the celebrity investigators were amazing, and we brought some Bollywood vibes to the show!"
The new BBC One game show is hosted by TV presenter and comedian Paddy McGuinness.
I Can See Your Voice will see two players aiming to win a cash prize by guessing who can and can’t sing from a group of mystery singers standing before them. But there’s a catch… can they predict who has the voice of an angel or who will leave them covering their ears in horror – all without ever hearing them sing a note? Jimmy, Alison and Amanda will be helping the players along the way and will be joined each week by a different popstar.
As the singing sensations navigate through a series of rounds, they will be offering entertaining hidden clues to the celebrity panel who will help the players whittle down the group until there’s only one singer left. The chosen one will then perform a duet with the popstar to reveal whether they can or can’t sing. If the players have picked a good singer then they will take the prize… but if a bad singer is revealed, the imposter will pocket the cash.
I Can See Your Voice promises a whole new take on the singing game show genre as well as lots of music, comedy and play-along fun for the whole family to enjoy. It’s the show that will prove that when it comes to singing talent, what you see isn’t always what you get!
