Craig David joins Simon Cowell on his new show Walk The Line
The first judge to join Simon Cowell on his new show Walk The Line is reported to be Craig David. The 'Fill Me In' hitmaker will make his major TV debut on the upcoming ITV music game show.
Craig is said to be a massive coup for producers an insider told The Sun newspaper. “He’s appeared on Simon’s shows before – and he’s widely respected – so it would make perfect sense for him to be involved in Simon’s new show.
“It’s an exciting move and adds real credibility to the panel. You can always rely on Simon to keep it fresh and get everyone talking.
“Backstage bosses are excited for this show to air as it’s going to be exciting, and the massive cash prize will create a real buzz.”
The third judge is yet to be announced, Maya Jama is confirmed as the host for the new show.
Described as an epic new musical game show, Walk the Line is a departure from the traditional TV talent show.
The six-part series will debut on ITV and ITV Hub later in the year, offering musical variety acts a chance to win a life changing prize pot. But to win the money, talent alone isn’t enough - the contestants will need nerves of steel as they determine whether to cash out or physically Walk The Line and risk it all to stay in the competition.
The TV event format sees musical acts - be they soloists, duos, bands, or choirs - take to the stage to perform for the nation, as well as a panel of judges headed up by Simon Cowell. The top two performers of the evening then face a nail-biting decision in their bid to be crowned champion - to either ‘cash out’ with a tempting cash prize, or walk the line and play on. Should they stay in and top the leaderboard, they will then progress to the next show, facing a different cast of performers.
