Britain's Got Talent's Alesha Dixon has signed up for Simon Cowell's new ITV musical game show Walk the Line.

She joins comedian Dawn French and musician Craig David, as well as Gary Barlow as judges on the new show, which is set to debut later this year.

Hosted by Glow Up's Maya Jama, Walk The Line will see soloists, duos, bands, and choirs perform in front of the panel of judges, with a chance to win a prize of £500,000.

The two top performers of each evening will face the tough choice as to whether they 'walk the line' or face a new cast of performers in the next show, playing for potentially more money as the weeks go on.

Dixon said she "couldn't wait" to see the show come to life.

"Now to add being a part of it alongside Gary, Craig, Dawn, and Maya is very exciting," she said. "Walk The Line has all the components to make great TV, it's always a joy to find new talent, let the games begin!"

She's not the only one who is looking forward to it, as everyone seems very happy to be involved and excited to get started.

The Vicar of Dibley star French jokingly added: "I'm far too excited to be part of this show, – I've decided to wear double knickers at all times."

David said he was excited by who he has seen so far, and "can't wait" for the show to start.

"I'm really vibed by the quality of the contestants I've seen so far and love that they have the chance to bet on themselves every step of the way," he said.

"Can't wait to get started and see who's gonna take the money or take a leap of faith and walk the line."

"If someone said to me, describe your dream job. It would be this!" Jama previously said on being confirmed as host. "I literally couldn't be more excited to be working with Syco, Lifted Entertainment and the incredible team at ITV on Walk The Line."

Walk The Line will air on ITV and ITV Hub later this year.
