The biggest Irish entertainment show of the year
The highly anticipated show ‘The Big Deal’ is finally here. Hosted by Vogue Williams, this brand-new format devised by Fox Entertainment receives its worldwide debut on Virgin Media One this Saturday, September 4, at 8pm.
In episode one we introduces a variety of talent from all across the country. Each act will try their best to impress a celebrity judging panel featuring global icon Boy George, JLS lead singer Aston Merrygold, Comedian Deirdre O’Kane, breakout music star Lyra and legendary duo Jedward, in the hopes of winning a top prize of €50,000.
However, on The Big Deal the performers are in control, as each act is offered a money deal to walk away from the competition. If they take the money they must leave immediately. But if they turn down the deal, then the judge’s votes will decide their fate.
In tonight’s episode a singer from Ratoath, Co Meath aims to wow the judges with his powerful voice. Two dancers from Dublin bring their unique style to the competition. Other acts auditioning include a flying trapeze couple, a singing family, a circus duo and an illusionist who aims to play mind games with the judges.
Plus, a real-life couple that sang for the frontline workers every week during lockdown step onto a theatre stage for the first time in over a year. Will they take the money or will they take a chance?
