Create and Craft search for new presenter



The Big Audition is a brand new factual entertainment series which goes behind the scenes of the casting world.


We will witness real people being cast for real jobs, which have the potential to be life-changing. The casting panels will be searching to fill all sorts of roles and anyone can audition, from seasoned professionals to first-timers. This fixed rig programme will uncover the decision-making process of the panels and will transport us through each audition to reveal what really goes on in the casting studio.



Through intimate interviews, we’ll hear heart-warming, funny and touching backstories. There will be highs and lows along the way, but who will have what it takes to land the job of their dreams?



Create and Craft are casting for a presenter. It’s a prestigious job at the pinnacle of the crafting world. The auditionees include 68-year-old grandma Francie, hairdresser Hayley, who crafts with her young daughters, and Zack, who shows off his hand-made and astonishingly lifelike paper birds. The crafters come out all glue guns blazing, tackling tasks such as transforming a styrofoam ball. The results include an impressive Christmas bauble, an adorable pig… and Mr Blobby.


Find out who gets the job on The Big Audition, ITV 9pm Friday 19th October 2018.
