Mel B is replacing Paddy McGuinness on Celebrity Juice.

The Spice Girl, 44, is taking over as team captain when the ITV2 panel show returns this autumn, as McGuinness is unable to take part due to scheduling conflicts.

The singer said she was thrilled about joining the programme and vowed to give host Keith Lemon “a run for his money”.

“My mission is to give Keith a run for his money.

“Watch out.

“Things are going to get even more crazy.”
