The original series will see 10 teams of florists go head-to-head to create unique flower installations in a number of challenges over eight one-hour episodes from May 18. Vic said: "I had the most wonderful summer watching immense floral sculptures emerge from nothing with my favourite co-presenter Tash."

The pieces of art will be made with environmentally-friendly materials and the show will be judged by expert florist Kristen Griffith-VanderYacht, with one team eliminated from the competition each week and the winner handed the chance to design a sculpture for display in London's Royal Botanic Gardens.

Natasia has described working alongside the 61-year-old comedian as her "dream job".

The 'In The Shadows' star added: "Working with Vic Reeves in a beautiful English field surrounded by loads of chicken wire - it's every person's dream job."

It comes after the success of 'The Great British Sewing Bee' and 'The Great British Bake Off', which sees contestants battle it out to become Britain's best sewer and baker respectively.

'Bake-Off' has been affected by the current pandemic with filming postponed indefinitely, as the show is usually shot between April and July and aired in August.

Matt Lucas - who will take over from Sandi Toksvig as co-host - said last month: "We were supposed to be filming in about three weeks' time, but obviously we're just following government guidelines. Whenever they say it's safe to make it, we'll make it. But for the moment, like most other people, we're on hold."
