() Mel B is set to join Celebrity Juice as a new team captain later this year.

The Spice Girl, 44, will be replacing Paddy McGuinness who is unable to return for the next series due to 'scheduling conflicts'.

Speaking about the announcement, Mel said: 'I am so happy that I’m going to be part of the Celebrity Juice family and thrilled to be a captain. 

'My mission is to give Keith a run for his money. Watch out. Things are going to get even more crazy.' 

Paddy joined the show earlier this year after replacing original team captain Fearne Cotton who decided to depart the series to focus on other parts of her career. 

Mel and Holly had a funny exchange during the singer's appearance on the game show after Keith asked the This Morning host had she ever experimented with another woman.

Turning to Holly, Keith said: 'Have you ever kissed the sweet lips of a lady?' 

Holly, looking taken aback, said: 'What are you getting at? No.'

Mel then chimed in and said 'Don't lie.'

Holly, raising her voice said: 'No. What do you mean?'
