Claudia Winkleman will host the next series of cooking show Hell's Kitchen following Angus Deayton's departure.
The 37-year-old was recently seen presenting Let's Dance for Comic Relief on BBC One and Strictly Come Dancing companion show It Takes Two on BBC Two.
"I've always been a huge fan of Hell's Kitchen and I'm thrilled to be joining the team," said the TV personality.
She replaces Deayton, who left the ITV1 show following reports of friction with celebrity chef Marco Pierre White.
The fourth series, to be broadcast this spring, sees the Michelin-starred chef return to put a group of celebrities through their culinary paces.
Winkleman, who started her television career as a reporter on ITV1's This Morning, said she hoped she would receive some advice from White "as I get confused when making toast."
White became head chef in the third series of the cooking reality show, taking over from previous experts Gary Rhodes and Jean Christophe Novelli, who headed the show in 2005.
Gordon Ramsay, who appeared in the first series, now stars in the US version.
Former boxer Barry McGuigan won the last run of Hell's Kitchen, broadcast in autumn 2007.
That series made headlines when contestant Jim Davidson was asked to leave after using a gay epithet deemed by producers to be "unacceptable".
