Choirmaster and television presenter Gareth Malone will return to television later this year with a new six-part series featuring choirs in the workplace.
Sing While you Work will see Malone train choirs from four different British workplaces who will then compete against each another in ‘sing-offs’.
The series follows previously successful projects by Malone, including The Choir and Military Wives, which led to last year’s Christmas No. 1
‘There will be a real edge to this, but we also want it to be quite heart-warming in these tough times,’ said BBC commissioning editor for documentaries, Charlotte Moore. ‘There is a lot of equality about a choir – and introducing that into workplaces, which can be very hierarchical places, will be very interesting.’
Malone was appointed OBE in this year’s Queen’s birthday honours list.
