Series 4, Episode 2

This week there's a spectacular musical performance from the one and only Kylie, and audience members are in for a big surprise when they end up taking part in a very special karaoke - or should that be Kylie-oake? Doctor Who star Bradley Walsh hands over his phone to play Celebrity Send To All, and Michael makes an airline pilot's dreams of performing on the west end stage come true, as he becomes the Unexpected Star.
