Steppin' out with Katherine Jenkins

Katherine Jenkins has cemented her place as one of the greatest classical-popular crossover singers of all time. The talented mezzo-soprano has won countless awards and a worldwide army of fans following her success on US hit dance show "Dancing With The Stars". Now, in a 75 minute special for ITV1, she is to showcase a series of spectacular song and dance routines in an evening of glitz and glamour.

In a show awash with old school elegance and style, Katherine will take to the stage to perform a variety of classic songs and sensational dances, including the Waltz, the Argentine Tango and a breath-taking tap routine inspired by Fred & Ginger.

Also guesting on the show is acclaimed comedy actor Mark Benton who will introduce exclusive performances from multi-award winning quartet, Il Divo; Britain’s best-selling girl band of 2012, Stooshe; vocal harmony group, The Overtones; musical icon, Andre Rieu and his Johann Strauss orchestra; Welsh choir and Britain’s Got Talent finalists, Only Boys Aloud and winner of Strictly Come Dancing, Tom Chambers.

Katherine said: "To have my own special on ITV is a huge honour and I'm incredibly excited by it. We are hoping to create a show of Hollywood glamour combined with good, old fashioned entertainment and it's wonderful for me to get the opportunity to combine my love of singing with a relatively new passion, dance! I'll be dusting off my tap & ballroom shoes and I cant wait!"

ITV’s Controller of Entertainment John Kaye Cooper said: "Every year ITV1 are delighted to offer our viewers a wide range of music and entertainment specials. Last year we had Michael Buble, and Beyonce, and this year the 100th Royal Variety Performance, Rod Stewart's Christmas, and also in December this glamorous special showcasing Katherine's acclaimed dance skills and award winning vocal talent, with a highly popular line up of star guests - a musical treat not to be missed"
