Hairspray is coming back! But this time to our small screens in a one night only TV musical spectacular!

Back in January, a live TV version of the classic musical Grease graced our screens and was performed live for TV in America, and over in the UK on ITV the following day.

The live musical spectacle was filmed totally live on sound stages in LA and featured Julanne Hough as Sandy and Les Mis's Aaron Tveit as Danny Zuko alongside cameos from Jessie J, Boyz II Men and the original Frenchie and Doody!
