Supporting ITV’s groundbreaking mental health campaign, Britain Get Talking, this unmissable TV event created and produced by Lifted Entertainment, will also feature inspiring clips in which the stars discuss their own experiences of mental health.
Britain Get Singing has been commissioned for ITV by Katie Rawcliffe, ITV’s Head of Entertainment Commissioning, Paula Thomas Gallie, ITV Entertainment Commissioning Editor and Louise Major, ITV Entertainment Commissioning Editor. The special will be produced by Lifted Entertainment (part of ITV Studios) and the Executive Producers are Lee McNicholas and Simon Marsh. Series Editor is Rosie Franks.
Britain Get Talking is supported by Mind and YoungMinds, and by SAMH in Scotland, to encourage people to look after their mental health by connecting with others. Created with Uncommon Creative Studio, it originally launched in 2019 by pausing the live broadcast of Britain’s Got Talent, and then as lockdown beckoned, Ant and Dec invited the nation to send their messages of support for broadcast and to stay in touch with the message that we’re ‘apart, but never alone.’
Since its initial launch, research indicates that Britons have had 100 million new or more meaningful conversations as a result of the campaign, which has featured celebrities from Captain Tom to Susanna Reid, Maya Jama to Shirley Hancock.
