A WORCESTERSHIRE songstress is calling on talented singers from across the country to take part in her brand new BBC Three show Project Icon. 

Becky Hill, Jason Derulo and Derulo’s long-term manager Frank Harris are officially on the hunt for the UK's brand new pop star. 

Although the date of the BBC Three show is still to be confirmed the judges are still keen to get aspiring singers to put in their applications. 

BBC Radio 1's Jordan North is also set to host the show that will be available online in the next few weeks.

The new six-part singing competition is set to put the contestants through real-life challenges in order to get an insight into the cutthroat world of music.  

The judges will also act as mentors for the contestants in order to help them in every round. 

Each round will reflect the realities pop stars face in the modern music business and one contestant will be eliminated every week to narrow the hunt for the UK's next singing star.

Becky Hill, who was a semi-finalist on The Voice, told the BBC: “As somebody with first-hand experience of a TV talent show, I know the struggles and stigma that surround trying to make it in the music industry.

"I want to change that narrative for other artists and show them that success in the music industry is about talent, but also and mostly about hard work.

"I feel like Project Icon is a boot camp for artists, showing them the fun parts of this life and the real work that goes into becoming a true icon.

"This is the training I wish I had all of those years ago.”

Earlier this year the superstar won a Brit award and said the win made her feel like 'a proper artist'. 

Hill said: " I have been a huge fan of Self Esteem and I met her at the Brits and I had the award in my hand."
