Lip Sync Battle UK gets second series

Professor Green has confirmed he will return for a second series of 'Lip Sync Battle UK'.

The 'Read All About It' hitmaker - whose real name is Stephen Marsden - will be joined by Melanie Brown, better known as Mel B, for series two of the Channel 5 show and he is thrilled to be working alongside the 41-year-old former Spice Girl again.

He said: "[I'm] Very excited to be working with Mel again, and I've promised her I'll have been to bed before we do our press day this time. It isn't work with Mel, nor is it with the team behind the scenes - it's a genuine giggle with a good bunch - I'm excited about what season two of 'Lip Sync Battle UK' has to offer!"

The 32-year-old rapper recalled the final episode of the first series when comedian Johnny Vegas dressed up as an angel for a rendition of The Weeknd's 'Can't Feel My Face' and said he would love to see US presidential candidate Donald Trump channel Lil Wayne.

He added: "I've had the image of Johnny Vegas suspended from the ceiling dressed as an angel in my head for the last year. That sort of thing does something to your psyche. This year I'd love to see Donald Trump doing Lil Wayne "Misunderstood."

'Viva Forever' hitmaker Mel can't wait to see who will have her in "stitches" next year.

She said: "I'm looking forward to being back in the UK for the second series of 'Lip Sync Battle UK'. We had so much fun filming the last series; some of the performances still have me in stitches. Who will take to the stage this time around? I can't wait to see!"

Previous celebrity contestants have included David Walliams, Alesha Dixon, Carol Vorderman and Michelle Keegan.

Series two will be coming to Channel 5 in January 2017 and there will be a Christmas special, which will air in December.
