Born to Shine was an ITV entertainment programme which featured celebrities who learn a new skill taught to them by talented teenagers, live on Sunday evenings. The show was presented by Natasha Kaplinsky and won by Jason Manford.


Teenagers teach celebrities a new talent to perform on the Born to Shine stage. Every week three celebrities perform, in an attempt to make it through to the final. Denise van Outen and Jason Gardiner give their opinions to the celebrities before the lines open for the public to vote for their favourite. All of the money raised goes to Save the Children, of which Kaplinsky is an ambassador.
