Jane McDonald & Friends - Channel 5

Jane McDonalds & Friends Se 2 Ep 4

Jane McDonald is joined by Holby City actor and West End star Lee Mead, Irish crooner Gilbert O'Sullivan, and soul band Imagination's lead singer Leee John

The ever-fabulous singing sensation steps into her sequins once more for a raucous rave-up with another batch of celebrity pals.

In tonight’s jam-packed show, it’s lovely to see Holby City actor and star of Joseph and the Technicolor Dreamcoat Lee Mead (pictured above with Jane) remind us just what an amazing vocalist he is as he belts out some stunning tunes – and Jane’s clearly got a soft spot for him, too!

Meanwhile there are a couple of blasts from the past as 1970s crooner Gilbert O’Sullivan takes to the stage, and Leee John from 1980s soul band Imagination also sings for his supper.

Throw in the usual batch of fun prizes and surprises for more heroic members of the public and you’re in for a Friday night treat!
