Former Spice Girl and Leeds lass Mel B has been confirmed as the new host of Channel 5’s Lip Sync Battle.

The UK version of the popular American show will see two celebrities competing against each other, each performing their routine of a hit song - complete with costumes, dance moves and facial expressions.

Mel B will front the show when it launches on Channel 5 in 2016, although an exact date has yet to be confirmed.

She said: “It’s great to be asked to present this show. Who doesn’t love letting out their inner diva?”

“The US version has me in fits of laughter and I can’t wait to see the UK show contestants give it their all.

“I’ll be sure to keep everyone in line!”

Her co-presenter and other participating talent will be announced in the next few weeks.
