Mark Wright's wife will go up against Jason Manford in the second episode of the show, which is inspired by the US series. Other celebrities who are taking part in the series include David Walliams, Johnny Vegas and Vic Reeves.

Wannabe was the first single the Spice Girls brought out in November 1996. Speaking on This Morning earlier this month, Mel admitted that she would like to mark the band's 20th anniversary.

"I would love it. I think it'd be a shame not to do something for the anniversary," said Scary Spice. "I think hopefully something will happen."

On the prospect of taking part herself, Mel added: "I got asked to do the American version, but I got a little bit too scared. I'm not used to lip syncing and I'd probably mess it up."
