Davina McCall to host dance show for Sky1

Davina McCall has been confirmed as the presenter of new Sky1 series Just Dance.

Davina – who will only present one more series of Big Brother after Channel 4 announced the long-running show will end after next year – will host the nine-part dance competition.

“I love the ambition of Sky1 and Just Dance is spectacular family entertainment at its best,” said Davina.

She continued: “I can’t wait to get started with the auditions, although the hardest job will be keeping me off the dance floor.”

The show is due to be broadcast in January 2010 – the same time Davina could be hosting the last series of Celebrity Big Brother.

The Just Dance team will look for Britain’s best dancers, with auditions kicking off in October.

The Dancing In The Street auditions will be in Glasgow from October 9 to 11, before heading to Manchester between October 16 and 18.

They will hit London between October 28 and November 1.

Flash mob routines will be created at all of the venues, with the most entertaining dancers asked back for a second audition.

The judges will then select 18 acts to make it through to three semi finals before six make the grand final.
