ENTERTAINMENT SOAPSTAR SUPERSTAR ITV1, 8.30pm.

Byline: by Jane Simon

RASHLY going head to head against Celebrity Big Brother, this talent show for singing soap stars won't win many prizes for originality.

We've already got Celebrity Stars In Their Eyes and Fame Academy and it's a well known fact that the trouble isn't getting actors to give us a tune - the hard part usually is getting them to shut up again.

Those hogging the karaoke microphone for charity include Corrie's Sunita, Cilla and Kirk and Chas and Katie from Emmerdale. But the BBC must have taken a dim view of any of their lot popping up on ITV so the token Walford warblers are Nicholas Bailey and Michael Greco (Dr Antony Trueman and Beppe di Marco in case you've already forgotten).

Viewers also get to vote for what songs they perform. So if you want to hear Corrie's Craig the Goth do S Club 7's Reach For The Sky, this just might be your chance.
