BBC Three is on the lookout for Sidmouth's young chefs, mechanics, hairdressers and butchers to take part in a new talent show.

Young Talent of the Year 2009 will celebrate the millions of young British workers whose skills aren't the kind to win them a million pound recording contract.

The programme, dubbed 'Chop Idol', will celebrate the country's young unsung heroes and is looking for 16 to25 year-olds who want to showcase their skills.

A BBC spokesman said: "There are talent shows for dancers, singers and entertainers but what about all those who never see the limelight? If you are a talented young chef, mechanic, hairdresser or butcher we want to hear from you. Or if you know someone who fits the bill please get in touch."

To apply e-mail youngtalent@bbc.co.uk or contact the Casting Team, BBC TVC, room 3136, Wood Lane, London W12 7RJ.
