Mel B said: "I'm looking forward to being back in the UK for the second series of Lip Sync Battle UK. We had so much fun filming the last series; some of the performances still have me in stitches. Who will take to the stage this time around? I can't wait to see!”

Professor Green said of the reunion: “Very excited to be working with Mel again, and I've promised her I'll have been to bed before we do our press day this time. It isn't work with Mel, nor is it with the team behind the scenes - it's a genuine giggle with a good bunch - I'm excited about what season 2 of Lip Sync Battle UK has to offer!"

Lip Sync Battle UK will air from January 2017 on Channel 5 with the Xmas special airing on December 20
