Jermaine Jackson is set to judge new BBC Three reality show Move Like Michael Jackson – a search for a Brit who can dance as well as the King of Pop.

The six-part series will see auditionees dance to Michael Jackson hits to show off their talent later this year.

Jermaine said: “Michael was a superb dancer who inspired people across the world to master his moves and create their own unique routines.

“I’m really excited and delighted to be part of this show and look forward to finding the UK’s most talented and inspiring dancers.”

BBC Entertainment boss Karl Warner said: “Michael Jackson was one of the greatest performers of all time and we think this is a brilliant way to honour him.

“We want to hear from anyone who’s ever been inspired by the Moonwalk, the Smooth Criminal lean or the crotch grab, and find out if they can move like Michael Jackson.”

Auditions will be held across the country in October and are open to anyone aged 16 and over.
