Mel B, Jason Gardiner and Wayne Sleep will call the shots as six celebrities and their real life partners put their relationships to the ultimate test, via the form of dance.
The show - which stars Irish singer Brian McFadden, Loose Women star Denise Welch, Ortisé Williams of JLS, flamboyant interior designer Laurence Llewelyn Bowen, boxer Carl Froch and actress Glynis Barber - gets underway this weekend on UTV.
The judges, The Front Row, will offer feedback and give individual 'him and hers' scores revealing who has impressed them and who needs to put their dancing shoes back on.
They will be joined by a weekly mix of celebrities, performers from stage and screen, choreographers, and family friends throughout the show's run.
From week two - when the couples are dancing to keep their place on the show - the Front Row scores will be combined with the viewers vote and the bottom couple will be sent home.
"I absolutely love the sound of this show, it's going to be very entertaining," said Mel B.
"Real life couples trying to learn a new dance routine in a week? You're just asking for trouble. I can't wait to get back in the UK with this hot new show, we're going to have a great time".
Stepping Out starts on UTV this Saturday at 6.30pm.
