Paddy McGuinness has landed himself a brand new show on BBC One.

The presenter will front I Can See Your Voice, a musical competition which sees contestants battling it out for a cash prize by determining who can and cannot sing from a line-up of strangers.

The contestants won't hear the guests sing before giving their answer but will be assisted by a panel of celebrities, lip synching challenges and clues hinting at who can sing.

The 46-year-old said: “A show like this doesn’t come along very often so I am thrilled to have been asked to host I Can See Your Voice.

“It’s bonkers, silly and the ultimate family night in. Everyone can play along at home and I’m looking forward to welcoming the good and the bad to our stage.

“The show has been a huge success around the world so here’s to making it one to watch in the UK in 2021.”

The programme takes it format from a South Korean game show.

The new role comes five months after Take Me Out, the dating show father-of-three hosted for a decade, was given the chop by ITV.

Back in February, McGuinness tweeted: “Hello friends. Well after 11 series, it’s time to say goodbye to Take Me Out. Eight weddings, six babies and a generation of youngsters who’ve grown up watching us on Saturday night TV.

“Over 10 years ago, ITV took a punt on myself and the show and for that I’ll be eternally grateful.”
