TEN’s new-look Young Talent Time will go before the cameras this weekend, ahead of its premiere a week later.
The reboot hosted by Rob Mills sees the return of Tina Arena as judge and former talent discovery John Foreman as Musical Director. Johnny Young is creatively involved behind the scenes.
Set to join them are many old faces from the original series, who will be jetting in from around Australia and overseas for the premiere episode. Their inclusion will echo the show’s rich history and help pass the baton to the new kids on the block.
But which YTT graduates will be there?
At last year’s 40th Anniversary Reunion interview on A Current Affair, the roll-call included Karen Knowles, Jane Scali, Phillip Gould, John Bowles, Steven Zammit, and Joey Perrone.
Debra Byrne, set to appear in Nine’s Tricky Business, and Australia’s Got Talent judge Dannii Minogue aren’t expected to appear.
Others including former contestant Denis Walter have filmed video interviews.
But will Jamie Redfern make an appearance? He did appear on a reunion for Where Are They Now?
A launch will also be held in Sydney next Thursday.
