Ashley Roberts to host new dance show 'Dance Monsters'

The 40-year-old singer is expected to front the Netflix programme, which is due to air next year, and Diversity's Ashley Banjo - who was previously a judge on the Sky talent show 'Got to Dance' - is set to be one of the panellists.

A TV insider told The Sun newspaper's TV Biz column: “Becoming the face of Netflix’s big new show is quite a coup for both performers, as this is going to get an international audience.

“It will introduce the world to two faces which are probably still best known in Blighty – and could lead to bigger things for them both.”

Roberts also has plenty of dance experience. As well as being a member of the Pussycat Dolls, she appeared on series 16 of 'Strictly Come Dancing' in 2018.

Netflix confirmed the dance competition show in August, saying: "Through the power of VFX, live motion capture and facial recognition, competitors will transform into loveable and fantastical dance monsters that come to life in front of an expert panel of judges and a live studio audience.

"It’s hugely ambitious, with a heartfelt journey at its core as we see what happens when you really can dance like no one’s watching.

"For their time on stage they get to escape reality, become something truly extraordinary and stand out from the crowd."

Filming for the international show will take place in Hampshire, southern England.

Shows such as 'The Voice' and Netflix dating series 'Sexy Beasts' have gained popularity for the fact that contestants are judged on personality and talent, rather than their looks.
