Carol Smillie


Granada for ITV1, 10 October to 4 November 2005 (20 episodes in 1 series)


Portrait-painting competition, a kind of cross between Watercolour Challenge and Star Portraits. In each regional heat, 75 artists were whittled down by having to paint a self-portrait and two portraits of celebrity sitters.

It may not be a particularly good title, but it's better than either of the working titles: Art Idol and Celebrity Face Painting (groo!)

Aired in the 2.15pm slot as part of the "ITV Day" line-up strand.
