Denise Van Outen to judge new ITV show
Denise Van Outen is to head up the judging panel on a new ITV1 show.
The 37-year-old star will appear alongside 'Dancing On Ice' judge Jason Gardiner on 'Born To Shine', which will see talented youngsters teaching celebrities skills ranging from tap dancing to beatboxing.
The stars taking part include Jason Manford, Joe Swash, Ruth Langsford and Nick Moran and they must then perform in front of Denise and Jason and a guest judge who will change each week.
The show - which will start on Sunday July 17 - will be hosted by former newsreader Natasha Kaplinsky.
Earlier this year, Denise pulled out of 'OK! TV' - just three days before it was due to launch.
The blonde beauty had been due to front Channel Five's new flagship entertainment show alongside Matt Johnson, but announced she was too busy with other ventures to take the job.
Denise's spokesperson said: "Due to other contractual commitments, Denise Van Outen will not be presenting 'OK! TV'. Both parties wish each other the very best."
Former 'Live from Studio Five' presenter Kate Walsh - whose old show was axed to make way for 'OK! TV' - stepped into the job.
