Melanie C and Jason Donovan have both signed up to help Andrew Lloyd Webber find a new Jesus. Both have musical theatre credentials of course, though it’s not clear what their qualifications are for selecting a new messiah.

Auditions will begin today for a new Lloyd Webber-fronted ITV show, which is presumably based on the idea that the tedious composer being given a fifth TV talent show to plug his multi-million pound West End revivals business is clearly the first sign of the apocalypse, so we might as well speed up the second coming and find Christ via the same format.

The new Jesus will reach the masses via a tour of Britain’s arenas. Free bread and fishes with every ticket presumably.
