ITV has commissioned a documentary on the Nolan Sisters and their comeback tour.

The Nolans – In the Mood for Dancing will feature interviews with the sisters as well as behind-the-scenes footage of the tour.
“The Nolans were the British Von Trapp family and one of the best loved bands of the last few decades. The sisters have some amazing stories to tell and we’re delighted to be bringing them to ITV.” – ITV’s Controller of Entertainment Layla Smith.
The programme follows the singing family from their early performances in working men’s clubs, when the whole family with eight children lived in a three bedroom house, to selling twenty five million albums and singing with Frank Sinatra.
It also features exclusive interviews with the two Nolan brothers, who talk about growing up with the most famous sisters in the country and with celeb fans including Cliff Richard, who reveals that his programme gave The Nolans their first television performance.
With archive footage and family photographs, The Nolans – In the Mood for Dancing takes the sisters on a voyage of memories, even taking them back to the house in Blackpool where they grew up. The sisters talk about the tragedies that they’ve faced since they last took to the stage together and look ahead to their triumphant comeback.
The Nolans – In the Mood for Dancing is an ITV Studios production for ITV1. The programme will air across England on ITV1, Scotland on STV, Channel Television for the Channel Islands and UTV in Northern Ireland.
