The show challenges a regular cast of celebrities to perform as different music icons in front of judges Emma Bunton, Julian Clary and a special guest judge each week.

Contestants will be transformed into a legendary singer for every show, before facing the 'Randomiser' to decide who they'll impersonate the following week.

Launching later this year, the celebrities won't get evicted from the show, but will instead be awarded points based on their singing and dance routines.

Whoever tops the leaderboard with their impression will receive a cash prize for a charity of their choice at the end of each episode, with a further grand prize for the series champion.

Dixon said: "This show is going to be a lot of fun. I can't wait to see their transformations and spectacular performances. I know that Paddy and I are going to have our work cut out keeping them all in line!"

McGuinness added: "To be given a live show on Saturday night TV is a massive honour. Hairbrushes at the ready, for a proper good old Saturday night sing-along."

Endemol has already sold Your Face Sounds Familiar in 20 countries, including the USA where it is about to launch as Sing Your Face Off, hosted by John Barrowman.
