Alan Carr has signed up to host a new talent show for Channel 4.

Broadcast reports that Alan will front the interactive singing contest which gives viewers voting power in real-time.

The Singer Takes It All, made by Big Brother TV firm Endemol, will broadcast in the late summer.

Fronted by Alan, the series features a moving stage that can be manipulated by viewers.

If the audience likes the act, the stage moves the singer forward to a "gold zone" at the front.

If they don't, they will be sent to the back and possibly out of the show.

Instead of trying to win over judges to land a record deal, contestants will compete for a cash prize.

Channel 4 head of entertainment Justin Gorman said that the show was "about being in the moment, not about recording contracts".
