Pop star Alesha Dixon is stepping back into a prime time dance series as the host of a new ITV programme that challenges celebrities to recreate famous routines.

The former singer with girl group Mis-Teeq was a judge on BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing from 2009 to 2011 after winning the show in 2007, but now is joining ITV’s new entertainment series Dance Dance Dance, due to launch in the new year.

It will see a celebrity line-up including former Coronation Street star Lucy-Jo Hudson, The Only Way Is Essex’s Jessica Wright, ex-JLS singer JB Gill, Jonny Labey who recently left his role in EastEnders, and Emmerdale actress Fiona Wade take on some of the best-known dance routines from music videos and films.

Britain’s Got Talent judge Dixon, 38, said: “The art of dance has always played a big part in my life so this show is the perfect fit for me.

“The standard of dance is very high and I can’t wait for the public to see these iconic performances brought back to life.”

She will host alongside Will Best and the judging panel will be Diversity dancer Ashley Banjo and choreographers Tina Landon and Timor Steffens, who both count Michael Jackson among their previous clients.

Celebrities will choose a partner to help them take on routines including Michael Jackson’s Bad, Madonna’s Vogue, Beyonce’s Crazy in Love and Britney Spears’ Baby One More Time.

The series will be six 90-minute programmes and the air date is yet to be announced.
