Share article:

Matthew Kelly is returning to host "Stars in Their Eyes".

The 67-year-old TV presenter fronted the popular Saturday night talent series from 1993 to 2004, and he will reprise his role in a one-off special stage show to raise money for charity Prevent Breast Cancer.

A post on the aid organisation's website reads: "Hosted by Matthew Kelly himself, we are recreating this iconic show in every way possible, thanks to Endemol Shine, ITV and most of the original production crew! (sic)"

The stage show will take place at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester on June 2, and Matthew has donated his time.

The post adds: "Prevent Breast Cancer would like to sincerely thank Matthew Kelly, Mike Hayes, Paul Maddocks and the entire team for donating their time and services in helping us recreate this show! (sic)"

The original "Stars in Their Eyes" series spanned from 1990 to 2006 and captured the hearts of the nation as members of the public impersonated big star names, with Kylie Minogue, Madonna, Cher, George Michael, Dolly Parton, Elvis Presley, and Celine Dion among the most popular.

Following the initial run, Harry Hill hosted a revamped version of the programme in January 2015, but it was cancelled after just one series due to low ratings.

A source said at the time: "There are no plans to bring it back.

"Bosses liked it but it just didn't resonate with the viewers."
