British expat Cat Deeley is finally coming back to UK television.

As announced today (July 17), the former SMTV Live host will front a new show for Sky 1 called Sing It in her first UK presenting role since becoming a mainstay of American TV.

The series will bring together 30 diverse a cappella groups competing to win the main prize (similar to BBC One's Pitch Battle).

There will be seven episodes made up of three rounds before a winner is chosen, with the ultimate winning group bagging the pretty impressive prize of getting the opportunity to record an album at the iconic Abbey Road Studios.

They will also have a single released in time for Christmas so be warned, future The X Factor winners.

"I couldn't be more excited about Sing It," Cat said.

"I remember singing in choir, when I was a kid and loving every minute. We have the very best performers on the show – they have no backing tracks and no instruments, just their own incredible voices and talent.

"The British a cappella scene is so exciting and I'm thrilled to be able to be a part of it."

And, Sing It isn't be the only new series hitting Sky 1, as the channel will also be welcoming two more new shows in 2018.

Revolution is described as an extreme sport action-entertainment programme that will pitch skateboarders, BMXers and skaters against one other, while Carmageddon will pretty much be a car version of Robot Wars.

Woo!
