Staff at a Preston college are getting the star treatment.
The equine staff from Myerscough will take centre stage on television later this month after they were surprised by ITV for a new daytime show.
The college’s head of equine, Julia Gray, nominated a number of her staff to take part in the new show, which is hosted by singer and Loose Women panelist Jane McDonald.
The programme gives unsung heroes in the workplace a special reward, in the form of a makeover, as a thank you for their hard work and positive attitude.
The hour long episode, which airs on August 30 between 12.30 and 1.30pm sees the staff from Bilsborrow college being tracked down for a special surprise by Jane, who then works with a team of style experts to give the lucky workers a full makeover.
Viewers will see the staff in their normal working environment before being taken for a full hair, makeup and clothing makeover in the Star Treatment ‘Glam Van’.
There’s an extra surprise in store for the ladies too as top chef, Ricky Andalacio, prepares a surprise gourmet meal for them all.
By the end of the day, the transformation from work star to superstar is complete, and the team walk the catwalk to the applause of their colleagues, family and friends before sitting down to a meal to remember.
Julia said: “My staff all work incredibly hard to make our equine department a success.
“Viewers will hear some really heart-warming stories from the staff who took part.
“Some of them were a little shocked when they first saw the cameras but they all thoroughly enjoyed themselves.”
Jane McDonald said: “Glitz, glamour and real life stories. Star Treatment has my name written all over it.
“ It was great to meet the unsung heroes of the workforce and treat them to a special makeover to show them how appreciated they are.
“There are a lot of tears and emotion but the ending is always really positive.”
