  Pop stars to help Fame Academy wannabes
Updated 16 September 2002, 20.56
Enrique Iglesias will be holding masterclasses for Fame Academy
Music stars like Enrique Iglesias and Anastacia will be helping out in the BBC's new talent show.

Top names have been brought in to give masterclasses to the pop wannabes in Fame Academy.

The TV show, which starts in October, has been called a mix between Pop Idol and Big Brother.

'Mr Nasty'

Twelve young people will be picked from auditions around the country to compete for a top recording contract. The final 12 will live in a Big Brother-style house, complete with 35 cameras and 70 microphones.

They'll have to get through a tough schedule of voice training, dance classes and gym sessions before the final star is chosen.

Cat Deeley

Fame Academy even has its own 'Mr Nasty' in the shape of Richard Park, who used to be the boss of Capital Radio.

And it's up to the audience and the contestants to decide who gets booted out each week.

CD:UK star Cat Deeley and funnyman Patrick Kielty will host the show.
