Dommett said: "I am beyond excited to be hosting my first quiz show. It’s always been a dream for me and I can’t believe I’m finally here, plus it’s a show I love SO MUCH!

"I’m ready to cheer, console, congratulate and sometimes laugh at our wonderful contestants. I’m always shouting at the telly so the hardest part will be for me to stand silently and not join in. It's going to be so much fun I can’t wait to get started!"

Airing on ITV1, it will pit two families against each other in each episode as they try to win £20,000 by answering questions hidden in a montage of moving images.

To bank the cash and avoid crashing out of the competition, they will have to shout out the answers displayed on TV screens and move up the money ladder.

But the family that reaches the final round will have to turn off all 10 TV screens by shouting out the correct answers - otherwise, they will walk away with nothing.

Katie Rawcliffe, head of entertainment commissioning at ITV, said: "In With A Shout is an exciting format which will have audiences shouting at their screen, you can’t resist playing along. Joel is the perfect host to bring sparkle and warmth whilst guiding the contestants to victory."

Dommett also hosts The Masked Dancer and was a runner-up in I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here! in 2016, losing out to Scarlett Moffatt.

In last night's Masked Singer, Dommett unmasked Pigeon as fellow comedian Katherine Ryan, surprising the panel who had thought she was either Gemma Collins or Stacey Solomon.
