Series three will see the battle of the brushes take place across multiple real-world assignments and challenges, as the MUA's get to work on everything from studio shoots and campaigns with Superdrug and Asos, through to period make-up and prosthetics on set with Pose, The Crown and Peaky Blinders.

The MUA's are hopeful to impress the judges and be tipped as Britain’s Next Make-Up Star, winning a contract to work alongside some of the world’s biggest artists.

Glow Up 2021 will air today, Tuesday 20 April with new episodes dropping weekly on BBC Three/BBC iPlayer. As well as streaming online, episodes will air on BBC One every Tuesday at 10:45PM.

Speaking about the series, Maya Jama said: "I absolutely LOVE Glow Up and can’t wait to join the family! I’m obsessed with makeup and creating different looks- it’s going to be so much fun and I can’t wait to see what the MUAs get up to."
