Molly Rainford in Nova Jones (CBBC)

Molly Rainford will star in Nova Jones, a CBBC comedy adventure series about an 18-year-old pop star undertaking a concert tour throughout the galaxy.

Rainford appeared on the 2012 series of Britain’s Got Talent. Aged 11 at the time, she made it through to the final. She has since released pop tracks including Commitment and Sign Your Name. She has also presented CBBC’s entertainment show Friday Download.

CBBC says: “With original music throughout, Nova Jones oozes talent and makes an impact with her out-of-this-world fashion in the quirky comedy. Whilst Nova is playing sell-out gigs to her legions of fans all across the universe, it’s up to McLaren to organise her superstar big sister’s tour schedule, her many moods and to untangle the various knotty situations that Nova gets them into!

“From intense chart battles to monsters on the loose, from confronting a space troll to helping a talking plant save the environment – the universe offers up an infinitely crazy set of problems for a hard-working legend and her even-harder working sister.”
