Ahead of Fridays launch of Andrew Lloyd Webbers new search for a Dorothy, fellow judge, Charlotte Church has spoken about her fellow judges and what to expect from this series.

Following on from the success of previous shows such as, How do you solve a problem like Maria, the musical-mogul is now on the hunt to find his new Dorothy in the BBC1 show - Over The Rainbow.

The Welsh beauty is joined on the panel with Andrew Lloyd Webber, Sheila Hancock and EastEnders actor John Partridge. The four will search the Nation to find a Dorothy, so she can put on her ruby slippers and head up the West End version of ‘The Wizard of Oz.’

Speaking to The Mirror about the search, Church said, "It's hard to judge at the moment if anyone will play that role."

"Some of these girls were clearly desperate to become the new Dorothy."
"Having to go and put a hand on their shoulder and eliminate them was difficult for me because you could see from the looks on their faces how hurt they were, how much the chance of West End success meant to them."

When asked if their was a Simon Cowell-esque character on the panel, the singer come presenter pointed the finger at openly gay actor Johnny Partridge, "John is the most straight-talking out of us all but I don't think any of us are unnecessarily harsh."
