Who run the world? Channing Tatum! The Magic Mike actor channelled his inner Beyoncé Knowles during a hilarious performance on Lip Sync Battle with a little help from the singer herself, and their routine is a bona fide must-see.

Channing went head-to-head with his wife Jenna Dewan-Tatum on the popular US show, and pulled out all the stops in his final performance to ensure he was named the lip-syncing champion. Dressed up in a blonde wig and bodysuit complete with a miniskirt and thigh high boots, Channing wowed the audience – and his wife – with a flawless routine to Beyoncé's hit Run the World (Girls).

However the 35-year-old had another trick up his sleeve as he was joined onstage by Beyoncé herself, who strutted out miming the final chorus leaving and leaving everyone stunned. The Halo singer performed in sync alongside Channing and a group of dancers, while Jenna raised her hands to her head in disbelief.

After the episode was aired on Thursday evening, Jenna has since praised her husband on Twitter, joking that she would be sleeping with the winner's Lip Sync Battle belt: "Got to give it up to my go-hard husband. That was epic. (Buuuuut seriously – I'm sleeping with the belt tonight)."

Lip Sync Battle has become a runaway success in the US, with celebrities including Anne Hathaway, Will Ferrell and Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson, lining up to take part. It is set to launch in the UK on Friday, with Mel B and Professor Green taking over hosting duties.

Announcing her new hosting role, Mel B said: "It's great to be asked to present this show. Who doesn't love letting out their inner diva? The US version has me in fits of laughter and I can't wait to see the UK contestants give it their all. I'll be sure to keep everyone in line!"
