Jermaine Jackson is to judge the new BBC Three talent show Move like Michael Jackson.

Auditions are to be held across the UK to find contestants who can dance like the late singer.

In a statement, Jermaine paid tribute to his brother's dance moves and said he was looking forward to finding “talented and inspiring dancers” in the UK.

Commissioning executive editor Karl Warner said the programme wanted to hear from anyone who had been inspired by the star's famous routines.

The auditions, which will take place in October, are open to anyone aged 16 and over.

The six-part series is due to air later this year.
