Paddy McGuinness will present new prime time BBC show I Can See Your Voice.

Based on a South Korean format, the unique game show invites two teams of players to guess who can and can't sing from a mystery line-up.

Unlike most singing competitions, teams will have to determine who can sing despite never hearing them perform.

The teams are helped by a panel of celebrity experts, including a different singing superstar guest each week.

A show with a difference 

Paddy McGuinness says, "A show like this doesn’t come along very often so I am thrilled to have been asked to host I Can See Your Voice.

“It’s bonkers, silly and the ultimate family night in!

"Everyone can play along at home and I’m looking forward to welcoming the good and the bad to our stage.

"The show has been a huge success around the world so here’s to making it the one to watch in the UK in 2021."
