Additional information

Björn made a guest appearance on this Saturday night family comedy show.

An amusing teaser appeared on Twitter a few days beforehand the broadcast showing Björn drawing a (very good!) sketch of Michael McIntyre.

The actual TV show had Björn judging a section called "ABBAoake" where four people had been secretly filmed singing ABBA songs at Karaoke bars in Cardiff and Liverpool and then surprised in the audience with the footage - and Björn judging them.

To ensure a mention of Mamma Mia! The Party was included, two singers from The Party were also on stage with Björn.

He got a great reception from the audience who gave him a standing ovation as he walked on stage.  Björn seemed to have a lot of fun.

Other guests on the show were Bear Grylls and Liam Payne.

See the programme here (UK only and only available for a limited time - until end of December 2019).

YouTube continually block attempts to upload the programme but they have their own short clip which gives a flavour of the show.
