The BBC has launched a search for bad singers to take part in a new TV show hosted by Paddy McGuinness..

The programme - named I Can See Your Voice - is looking for tone-deaf singers in the UK, who could even win a cash prize for being tuneless.

What is the format of the show?

There will be eight episodes of the programme, hosted by Paddy McGuinness (pictured below) in total, with each episode seeing a team of two players trying to win a cash prize by guessing who can and cannot sing from a group of mystery singers standing in front of them - without them having to sing.

The mystery singers will take part in lip-sync challenges and will offer entertaining hidden clues to the panel of celebrity experts.

The panel will help the players narrow down the group until there’s only one singer left, who will then perform a duet with a guest singer in order to reveal if they can or can’t sing.

If the players pick a good singer, they will take home the prize. However, if a bad singer is revealed, it is then them who will win the money instead.
