Justin Lee Collins has signed a two-year deal to front a series of shows on Five, it has been announced.

Collins, whose recent television credits include Channel 4's The Sunday Night Project and ITV2's The Justin Lee Collins Show, will launch the broadcaster's autumn season with a new primetime gameshow called Heads Or Tails.

He is also expected to front a raft of new entertainment and factual shows over the coming months.

"He exudes warmth, passion and guarantees to put a smile on everyone’s face. He is indeed the new face of Five.

“I’m delighted to have secured Justin at such a pivotal point for Five. We have just celebrated 14 weeks of continued growth - the only terrestrial to do so. Five continues to attract big names and Justin is a key player in our great autumn lineup."

Collins added: "I am thrilled to bits to be working exclusively with Five and to be making shows that I’m really passionate about."
