Dawn French's talent show gets second series

Dawn French's talent show has been commissioned for a second series.

Bosses at ITV have asked the 59-year-old actress to return as the host of "Little Big Shots", which sees four to 13 year olds take to the stage to show off their skills, after the first instalment received such rave reviews when it hit screens in March this year.

Dawn said: "I absolutely loved filming the first series and cannot wait to get started on the second. It's the show where I get to hang out with incredibly talented children from all over the world, making new friends on the sofa each week. I will never forget Balang from the Philippines, who had me in fits of giggles while teaching me a move or two, or Thomas who sang David Bowie's "Space Oddity" so beautifully! In our crazy upside down world, it is great to make a show that is just so positive."

Series one saw talented youngsters from classical music masters and a miniature chef to an ace ventriloquist and a marvelous magician take to the stage, as well as tiny dancers, pop sensations, an audacious scooter stunt kid and a spelling bee specialist.

However, bosses are hoping the new series will allow them to spread further afield in order to find amazing, talented children bursting with enthusiasm.
