POLITICAL editor Robert Peston is swapping Westminster for the West End — to sing on ITV’s All Star Musicals.
Former BBC man Robert, who hosts his own ITV Sunday show Peston, will belt out show tunes as part of the rebooted programme.
Robert, 60, is the star signing, with insiders saying he is a surprisingly good singer.
A show source said: “Robert loves singing and music and is up for a laugh.
“Away from the cameras he doesn’t take himself too seriously and is very game.
“He is looking forward to showing off his musical ability.”
Also joining Robert on the show are two former Strictly contestants — legal eagle Robert Rinder, 42, and This Morning medical expert Dr Ranj Singh, 41.
The show sees celebrities embark on a musical theatre masterclass before putting on a one night-only performance.
John Barrowman, 53, is returning to host, having fronted the last series in 2019.
