How do you solve a problem like Maria will premiere on BBC1 this coming Saturday evening. The winner of the 8-part Idol-type show will star in a West End revival of The Sound of Music this December as Maria, that o-so-feisty nun played by Julie Andrews in the film.
Perhaps they are bringing prospective Marias out to the HUB so that JB can get a preview before the show. I'm sure they could do with a few nuns around the place. Sitting alongside JB on the judges panel Saturday night will be David Ian and Zoe Tyler. I wonder how tough a judge JB will be. I doubt Barrowman will take on the Simon Cowell role since he doesn't have the proper accent after all.
