Who's on Lip Sync Battle UK series two?

Celebs signed up for the series are reported to include Alexander Armstrong, Katie Price, Ben Fogle, Craig Revel Horwood and Danny Dyer.

More names set to perform include Louie Spence, Joey Essex and Peter Andre.

The main series will return in 2017 with Melanie Brown a.k.a Mel B and acclaimed British rapper Professor Green (real name Stephen Manderson) back as hosts.

David Walliams and Alesha Dixon kicked off the first series last year with Carol Vorderman, Michelle Keegan and many more earned their stripes on the Lip Sync Battle stage.

Now show bosses are promising bigger songs, louder costumes and larger performances for season 2.

"The mics are still off, but the battle is most definitely ON!" teased Channel 5.

Mel B said: "We had so much fun filming the last series; some of the performances still have me in stitches."

Professor Green said of the reunion: “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!"
