Michael McIntyre's Big Show: musical guests announced

A massive UK girl band and an Aussie queen have also been confirmed so far.

The musical performers have been revealed for the new series of Michael McIntyre's Big Show.

Rita Ora, Cheryl, George Ezra, Little Mix, Kylie Minogue, Paloma Faith, Michael Buble and Nile Rodgers will appear across the new season, which begins on November 17.

Little Mix will grace the stage of the popular BBC One show for the opening episode, and Kylie Minogue will perform the following week (November 24). 

Little Mix's performance coincides with the release of their new album LM5 on November 16. Jade, Jesy, Leigh-Anne and Perrie recently became the first act from The X Factor to score 20 UK Top 40 hits, thanks to their Number 2-peaking single Woman Like Me.

Kylie's appearance comes as she approaches the end of her Golden tour. Audience members may also find themselves a part of "Kylie-oake", which sounds amazing.

2018 has been a big year for Kylie: her latest album Golden became her first Number 1 in eight years, with first-week sales surpassing those of her previous three albums The Abbey Road Sessions, Kiss Me Once and Kylie Christmas. The LP is the best-selling 2018 release by an international female artist, and is the best-selling cassette of the year so far.
