  Fame Academy returns with new twist
Updated 14 July 2003, 18.57
Cat and Pat are returning as the show's presenters
The new series of Fame Academy will let the viewers choose who makes it into the show.

In a new twist to the TV talent show, viewers will watch 25 wannabes audition for the show.

But there are only 13 places in the Academy - and the viewers will decide who's hot and who's not.

Last year's winner, David Sneddon

Their votes will decide who the final 13 will be.

But other parts of the show will remain the same as last year.

The winner will get a year's recording contract with a top record label plus a showbiz lifestyle for a year.

David Sneddon picked up a similar prize when he won the first series of Fame Academy in December.

Familiar faces

There will be some familiar faces, too.

Cat Deeley and Patrick Kielty are coming back to be the show's hosts.

Richard is returning as the headmaster, along with Carrie as the vocal coach, Kevin as the fitness instructor and Jeremy as the student's shoulder to cry on.

Carrie's husband David will be joining her as a vocal coach and newcomer Jo will be the music teacher.

There will also be a new judge - Robin Gibb.

He was in a band called the Bee Gees with his two brothers and they were famous for getting the disco movement going in the 1970s.

Fame Academy 2 starts later this summer.
