Britain's Got Talent judge Alesha Dixon will team up with Take Me Out star on new show Your Face Sounds Familiar.

It's another wacky celebrity series from ITV, following the surprise success of Tom Daley's Splash! earlier this year.

The show will see a group of celebrities singing every week with the public voting for their favourite and a panel of judges giving their views.

But this isn't just a celebrity version of The X Factor, in a Stars In Your Eyes style twist, the celebs will be impersonating the artist of the song they're singing.

Each week the celebs will be randomly given an 'legendary' performer to transform into.

Emma Bunton, Julian Clary and a third guest judge will comment and critque the performances, while the pubic decides a winner.

But there's no eliminations, instead each celebrity will get points every week depending on how they rank in the viewers vote.

The winner of each week will get a cash prize for their charity while the celeb with the most points at the end of the series will get a bigger cash prize.

Alesha said: "This show is going to be a lot of fun. I can't wait to see their transformations and spectacular performances. I know that Paddy and I are going to have our work cut out keeping them all in line!"

And Paddy added: "To be given a live show on Saturday night TV is a massive honour. Hairbrushes at the ready, for a proper good old Saturday night sing-along."

Your Face Sounds Familiar starts on ITV in the summer.
