The Saturdays’ star Una Healy and former Eastenders actress Martine McCutcheon are among the star names confirmed to appear on the judging panel for new sports talent show, Let’s Get Gold.
The girls will join sport pros Rio Ferdinand and Andrew ‘Freddie’ Flintoff’ on the ITV1 show, which will give talented sports amateurs and professionals the chance to showcase their abilities.
ITV bosses are expecting everything from football to cheer-leading, as talented sports stars compete to win acclaim from the panel, as well as £100,000 in prize money.
New mum Una, who is engaged to rugby star Ben Foden, said of her new venture:
“I’m so excited to be part of Let’s Get Gold. I’m looking forward to seeing all the sporting talent that Britain has to offer.
“It’ll be fun to see how these teams will put an entertainment spin on sports such as Rugby and Golf. I can’t wait to get started!”
Fellow judge and Manchester United star Rio – who will have a little extra time on his hands after missing out on this year’s Euros – added:
“It’s set to be a fantastic show, capturing the nation’s sporting mood perfectly.
“I am very excited to be working with Freddie, Martine and Una in the search for new sporting stars. May the best team win!”
The series, made up of three pre-recorded episodes, will air in early July.
