"When the chance to work with Mel B came up the answer was obviously a yes. I'm working with a f***ing Spice Girl!", said Pro Green. "The fact I'd be her co-host on Lip Sync Battle was also exciting.

"Jokes aside I'm very excited about filming the first series - having spent a good while on YouTube watching the US show I'm looking forward to seeing what our guests bring to the table!"

Lip Sync Battle, which airs on Spike in America, is already a huge hit in the States. The show features two well-known celebrities going head-to-head with show stopping routines and smash hit songs in front of a studio audience.

Mel previously said of her new role: "It's great to be asked to present this show. Who doesn't love letting out their inner diva? The US version has me in fits of laughter and I can't wait to see the UK show contestants give it their all. I'll be sure to keep everyone in line!"

Channel 5's Commissioning Editor, Entertainment Steve Regan said: "We couldn't be more excited to announce Pro Green as Mel's co-host, they're a match made in Lip Sync Heaven. Take Mel B's edgy attitude and Professor Green's urban cool, throw in incredible performances from well known faces and we're expecting fireworks!"

Lip Sync Battle UK will come to Channel 5 in January 2016.
