Dagenham star Stacey Solomon has been signed up to host a new celebrity packed TV show.

The 21-year-old jungle queen and Vernon Kay will present Sing If You Can, an ITV game show which sees two teams of stars attempt to sing songs whilst performing “extreme and hilarious” challenges.

Each episode will feature a celebrity judging panel, casting an irreverent eye over proceedings. But ultimately the studio audience will decide which team goes through to the end game and which celebrity from the losing team is sent plunging into a giant water tank.

In the end game, the winning team can win money for the show’s nominated charity, the Teenage Cancer Trust. The final song is performed on a giant turntable that spins faster and faster – the longer the team can keep their balance, the more they win for charity.

Boyzone’s Mikey Graham, X Factor’s Jedward, ex cricketer Darren Gough and Chesney Hawkes are just some of the stars taking part.

Stacey said: “I am really looking forward to what is going to be a really fun new series and working with Vernon Kay and the fact that the show is going to be such a big benefit to the Teenage Cancer Trust is brilliant. I realise I’ve lot to learn as I’ve never presented a TV show before but I can’t wait to get started.”

John Kaye Cooper, Controller of Entertainment at ITV, added: “The show will be packed with great music, edge of seat jeopardy and down right silliness. We are thrilled to have Vernon, Stacey and a huge cast of celebrities in this exciting and laugh-out-loud new series.”

It has not been confirmed when the show will be aired.
