Simon Cowell To Launch New ITV Music Show Where Singers Compete For Cash Prizes.
Simon Cowell is set to return to UK television screens later this year with a brand new format called ‘Walk The Line’. The show will feature singers that compete to win cash prizes, the amount growing as the competition goes on.
Continuing previous formats as seen in Britain’s Got Talent and The X factor, the new series, will see musical acts perform before a panel of judges, led by Simon, 61.
During the six-part series, the top two performers of the night will be given a big decision – go home with some money, or “walk the line” and carry on through the competition to try and top the leaderboard- if they choose to carry on, they will be set to face a new group of performers.
While a quick cash prize might sound like a good idea, the jackpot increases the longer a contestant stays in the show – though they could leave with nothing if they lose out in the next round of singers, that’s the risk they will have to take if they want to grab the big prize money.
Walk The Line is the latest format from Cowell’s Syco Entertainment and will be produced for ITV in partnership with Lifted Entertainment, the ITV Studios banner behind Love Island and I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here!. It premieres later this year.

Ron actually started his working career as an Ophthalmic Technician- things changed when, during a band rehearsal, his amplifier blew up and he couldn’t get it fixed so he took a course at Birmingham University and ended up doing a degree course. He built up a chain of electronics stores and sold them as a franchise over 35 years ago. After five years touring the world Ron decided to move to Spain with his wife and son, a place they had visited over the years, and only bought the villa they live in because it has a guitar-shaped swimming pool!.
Playing the guitar since the age of 7, he can often be seen, (and heard!) at beach bars and clubs along the length of the coast. He has always been interested in the news and constantly thrives to present his articles in an interesting and engaging way.
