Lorraine Kelly will be hopping over to BBC One to present a new wedding day game show.

The popular TV personality will be hosting Wedding Day Winners alongside comedian Rob Beckett.

Each week, two engaged couples – accompanied by their friends and family – will go head to head to win prizes, a dream honeymoon, and a beautiful wedding ceremony which will be broadcast to viewers at home.

Although it's a competition, each couple are guaranteed to leave as winners, married to the love of their lives.

Wedding Day Winners will air in spring 2018.

Lorraine is more familiar to ITV viewers, having worked on GMTV and Daybreak and now has her own daytime show on the channel.

She has, however, made rare appearances on the BBC – guest-presenting Never Mind the Buzzcocks in 2011, for example.

Lorraine said about Wedding Day Winners: "I am so excited about this show. There will be laughter and tears and lots of fun.

"Everyone loves a wedding, and it will be wonderful to share such a life affirming event with our couples.

"It's a show all the family can watch together and perfect for a Saturday night."

Rob said that he was excited to be working with Lorraine.

"When I was told that I'd be presenting Wedding Day Winners with the legend that is Lorraine Kelly, I was so excited that in true wedding tradition I immediately put a tie around my head and started belting out 'Come On Eileen' at the top of my voice."
