Lip Sync Battle UK: Craig Revel Horwood beats Danny Dyer in first show of 2017

Lip Sync Battle Se 2 Ep 1

Craig Revel Horwood beat Danny Dyer in tonight's first Lip Sync Battle UK 2017 showdown.

The EastEnders actor and the Strictly Come Dancing judge faced off to open series two of the Channel 5 series tonight.

Both lip synced to two songs each, but it wasn't just the lines they had to nail.

Performance and costume both also played a role as series two of Lip Sync Battle UK went bigger than ever before.

Danny transformed into Amy Winehouse while Craig will become Britney Spears for tonight's show.

Craig squeezed into Britney's infamous blue air hostess outfit for Toxic while his second song was Total Eclipse Of The Heart.

Meanwhile, Danny channeled the late Amy with a performance of Back To Black while also singing Fire.

Mel B and Professor Green were back to host the show and it was the live studio audience who decided which of the guys was awarded the Lip Sync Battle UK belt.

Based on the rather dubious measurement of audience cheering - as judged by Pro and Mel, the title of the first Lip Sync Battle UK champion of 2017 went to Craig.

Next weekend's Lip Sync Battle UK will see Ben Fogle vs Katie Price.

Other celebs signed up for the series over the next few weeks include Alexander Armstrong, Jimmy Car and Robert Webb.

More names set to perform on LSB 2017 are rumoured to be Louie Spence, Joey Essex and Peter Andre.

Lip Sync Battle UK airs Friday nights at 10PM on Channel 5.
