The Spice Girl will present the British version of the successful entertainment format
Following her stint as a feisty X Factor judge, Spice Girl Mel B is to present the UK version of Lip Sync Battle.
The show, which sees two celebrities go head-to-head to impress an audience with their miming skills, has already proved a success in the US.
Hosted by rapper LL Cool J and model Chrissy Teigen, the series is an expanded version of a segment on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.
The debut episode brought a record number of viewers to US cable channel Spike, with 2.2 million people tuning in to watch Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson take on Jimmy Fallon. 86,000 British viewers watched the opening episode on Spike’s UK launch night in April.
"It’s great to be asked to present this show,” said Mel B on her new hosting duties, “Who doesn’t love letting out their inner diva?”
While Channel 5 has yet to announce the celebrity guests, the US version has featured Oscar-winner Anne Hathaway, pop star Justin Bieber and former boxer Mike Tyson.
The show is expected to air next year.
