To take part, the mum* will be required to attend all auditions, screen tests, filming days, press and publicity alongside their child.

Children must be at least 11 years old on 5th August 2018 and no more than 14 years old on 3rd September 2018. We will consider everyone who applies equally.

Filming will take place from 5th – 24th August and one day w/c 27th August (tbc) 2018 so we need both of you to be available for all of these dates. There will be additional filming dates in early 2019 TBC. Exact dates will be given nearer the time of filming.

For the application to be considered, your child needs to provide:

 

1) completed application form

 

2) a recent photograph of both mum* and child together

 

3) a 1 minute clip of the child singing


This can be filmed on anything including a phone – does not have to be brilliant quality. It is very important that it is no longer than 1 minute in length otherwise it makes it difficult for us to open. Please see Filming on your smartphoneguidelines.

Please explain why you want to be on the show and about your relationship. Please make sure you both speak – make it creative and funny as we want to see both of your personalities shine!
