Glow Up Does Red Nose Day 7 May 2022: Saturday on BBC Three
Hosted by Maya Jama, Glow Up returns with a Red Nose Day twist! This one-off special will see five brave celebrities, Lady Leshurr, Nikki Lilly, Roman Kemp, Snoochie Shy and The Vivienne, attempt to become make-up artists (MUAs). In a battle of the brushes like no other, only one can be crowned the Glow Up Red Nose Day champion.
Under the watchful eye of Glow Up’s resident judges, Val Garland and Dominic Skinner, the celeb MUAs are sent on an industry assignment to create the make-up looks for a Red Nose Day runway show. Walking the runway are superstar models Leomie Anderson, Drag Race UK’s A’Whora, YouTuber and content creator Nella Rose as well as UK modelling royalty Kenza and Eva Apio. The iconic Dame Zandra Rhodes joins Val and Dominic as guest judges to help oversee the make-up artistry, and world-renowned photographer Rankin joins to shoot the celeb MUA’s make-up looks.
The next day, the celeb MUAs gather at Glow Up Studios to discover which two failed to impress and will start their next challenge in the red chairs with a 15-minute time penalty. In their creative brief, the celeb MUAs are challenged to produce a look on themselves based on their power. The judges are stunned with some interesting transformations, including a conjunctivitis sleep-based look, a human disco ball and a half-salmon, half-mermaid mash up applied with an egg.
Finally, the three celeb MUAs that impress the most compete head-to-head in a Face Off – a make-up skill drill under intense time pressure. Then, the judges decide who should be crowned the first ever Glow Up Red Nose Day champion.
