They'll be hoping to impress the judges to win a contract to work alongside some of the world's biggest artists.

They will also be joined by a host of special guest judges as they take on some big challenges.

Globally renowned photographer Rankin will invite them to work on a music video alongside singer Awa and DJ Jonas Blue.

The Crown's lead hair and make-up designer Cate Hall will be appearing alongside Loz Schiavo, the make-up designer for Peaky Blinders and Sherri Laurence, the make-up department head of FX's POSE, who will be on hand to lead the MUAs through period make-up and prosthetics.
