ITV has revealed a first look at its new celebrity dance TV show Dance, Dance, Dance.

The series has been reported as a 'big production rival to Strictly Come Dancing' and will air on ITV on Sunday nights in January.

The channel say the show "will celebrate the most iconic pop video and dance movie sequences of all time."

They add: "On a truly epic scale celebrities, together with a partner of their choice, will recreate dance performances audiences will know and love."

The channel have revealed that Dance, Dance Dance will also "employ amazing state of the art special effects to re-enact legendary routines from Michael Jackson’s Bad and Madonna’s Vogue to Beyoncé’s Crazy in Love and Britney Spears’ Baby One More Time."

The six episode run will be hosted by former Strictly judge Alesha Dixon and Will Best while world famous choreographer Tina Landon, dancer and choreographer Timor Steffens and dancer, choreographer and creator of BGT winning street dance crew, Diversity, Ashley Banjo, will judge the show.

ITV previously confirmed the celebrity line up for the show, made up of Coronation Street and Wild at Heart actress Lucy Jo Hudson, TOWIE reality star Jessica Wright, JLS singer JB Gill, Eastenders actor Jonny Labey and Emmerdale’s Fiona Wade.

While comparisons to Strictly have already been made, judge Ashley Banjo says it's actually very different.

"It has a real sense of nostalgia about it. I don't think it's a Strictly rival because it's so different," he said. "The only thing that links them is the dancing but it's different types of dance, we have all genres of dance - so they're like chalk and cheese. But I think it will be as successful."

Speaking to DigitalSpy, Ashley added: "Midway through the show, you'll forget the celebrities are celebrities and think they are dancers, because the standard and the quality is so high."

ITV have announced that the first episode of Dance, Dance, Dance will start on TV on Sunday, January 8 and run for 90 minutes.
