The 11 picked so far are a strange mix of ages and types of people, with the oldest aged 31 and the youngest 18.

Each week on the show the contestants will be put through their paces as they learn how to become an entertainer and each week they are given a mark on how well they've done.

The three with the worst marks have to "sing for survival" on the live shows on Friday with one person being voted off by the public and another by the remaining housemates.
