Jamie Laing is set to host a new dancing and dating show for BBC Three with guest judges including Strictly stars Oti Mabuse and Johannes Radebe.

The Made In Chelsea star and former Strictly Come Dancing contestant will front I Like the Way U Move, a new show that sees single pro dancers and rookie contestants team up to see which couple has the most chemistry both on and off the dancefloor.

World-renowned choreographer Kaelynn ‘KK’ Harris is the resident dance expert who is joined each week by a different celebrity judge to pick the winning couple.

Mabuse, who is the reigning champion of Strictly, said: "It was entertaining, raw and sexy. I had such fun working alongside Jamie Lang and Kaelynn 'KK' Harris. It’s a fresh and different way of looking at dance and dating."

Radebe, currently partnering John Whaite on Strictly, said: “The cast was a bunch of beautiful people, and I loved the jeopardy where they had to dance in order to stay in the competition...it's thrilling and entertaining."

They aren't the only former Strictly co-stars of Laing's to feature in the dating show, as the celebrity judges also include pro dancer Giovanni Pernice, and his old dancefloor rivals Clara Amfo and Maisie Smith.

Amfo said: "After Strictly last year, it was fun to be sat on the other side. The level of talent from the dancers is so impressive and I can’t wait to see the series unfold and find out how they got on off the dance floor too!”

Completing the celebrity judge cast are rapper Lady Leshurr, who took part in this year's Dancing On Ice, and West End musical theatre star Layton Williams.

I Like the Way U Move is available as a box set on BBC iPlayer from Sunday, 17 October.
