One of the best-selling groups of all time, with a phenomenal 76 million record sales, The Black Eyed Peas have won the love of the UK and the world. This year will.i.am, apl.de.ap and Taboo celebrate 20 years at the top, and viewers are being invited along to chart their incredible journey. Joanna Lumley presents this very special one-hour spectacular to feature exclusive performances of some of the global super group’s greatest hits.

A whole host of international celebrities and faces from the music industry, as well as the friends and family that have shaped their lives, will share their insights into the group and what makes them such a unique and special act. Away from the bright lights on stage, the show will take a look back at how The Black Eyed Peas came to be.

Starting with going right back to their childhoods, friends and family share their memories of those early beginnings and how they watched the group grow. The story will pick up from how and when they met, right through to their breakout album Elephunk and the ongoing international success they enjoy today.

Returning to Los Angeles, the trio will all be going back to their childhood neighbourhoods. They’ll be taking a trip back to the club where they were discovered – Whisky A Go Go on the Sunset Strip – and first got signed to a record deal. And they’ll also be revisiting the studio where they recorded many of their big hits and reminiscing about that time.

Back in the UK, as they take to the stage to perform, there will be surprises in store with some of music’s most renowned names joining them for special performances of their biggest hits.

Airdate: Saturday 22 December 2018 from 10.00pm – 11.05pm on ITV
