The two stars - who have appeared together on 'Celebrity Juice' in the past - are excited to front the upcoming E4 show, which will see 10 celebrities tasked with recreating scenes from the beloved 1987 classic film, with just two of the couples making it to the final where they'll be taught the famous lift.

Keith said: "'Dirty Dancing' is such a good film and of course I’ve been Baby myself! Twice now!

"Once for Let’s Dance for Comic Relief and once when we did it on 'The Keith & Paddy Picture Show'.

"So yeah I was chuffed to be asked to host this show! And to be hosting with me mate Ashley! It’s gonna be so fun!

"Ya can tell how excited I am, look how many exclamation marks I’ve used! Can’t wait!"

The Pussycat Dolls singer added: "I love 'Dirty Dancing', the film literally had a huge impact on my life, and I couldn’t be more excited to be involved in this series.

"I’m going to be on hand to help out the celebs with their Johnny and Baby moves and look forward to being reunited with Keith. Wish me luck! It’s going to be a lot of fun."

The eight-part series - which is inspired by the Australian show of the same name - is set to air in early 2022.

Genna Gibson, Commissioning Editor for Entertainment at Channel 4, said: "'Dirty Dancing' has been bringing people together to sing and dance (and swoon over Johnny Castle) since the 80s.

"We hope, like the film, that this colourful and entertaining show will get people together to watch and root for their favourite couples.

"I’m so excited to be bringing this format to the UK, as it’s exactly the type of large scale, glossy reality event that we’ve been looking for and that our audiences love, whether that’s watching together on E4 or bingeing on All 4.

"I cannot wait to see how our celebrities will cope recreating some of the most iconic scenes in movie history!"

In the film, Patrick Swayze - who passed away in 2009 aged 57 - played dance instructor Johnny, and Jennifer Grey starred as Baby.
