Keith Lemon will step outside the studio and onto the high street in his new ITV Two chat show, Shopping With Keith Lemon.

Lemon, real name Leigh Francis, will join Spice Girl Mel B as she makes her weekly food shop and boy band Busted as they hunt for new guitars.

The Celebrity Juice star, 46, will also join Britain’s Got Talent judge Amanda Holden as she travels over the English Channel to France to take advantage of the nation’s reasonably priced alcohol.

The series will consist of eight 30-minute episodes and will see Lemon interview guests in his unique style.

Each episode, from Talkback, part of the Fremantle group, will see Lemon embark on two shopping trips with two different stars.

Lemon said: “I’m a shopaholic that likes gossiping. What better way to spend my day than shopping and gossiping with famous people? Perfect job for me.”

Other celebrities to feature include Fearne Cotton who will reunite with Lemon for the first time since leaving Celebrity Juice and Love Island host Caroline Flack.

Comedian Rob Beckett, I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! star Emily Atack and David Dickinson will also appear.

Talkback’s acting managing director Jonno Richards said: “Keith Lemon has a uniquely brilliant interview style, and in Shopping we get classic Keith moments alongside juicy and revealing interviews, all the while shopping for cars, crisps, and much more besides.”

ITV controller of comedy Saskia Schuster said: “Would you spill all your secrets to Keith Lemon whilst doing your shopping? ITV2 viewers are about to find out.”

Shopping With Keith Lemon airs later this year.
