The El Perdon singer will make his debut as a TV presenter with Lip Sync Mexico, an adaptation of the American series which pits celebrity contestants against each other to lip sync to their favourite hit songs.

Nicky will be joined by actress Ariana Ron Pedrique as a co-host, and producers have already lined up an all-star cast of Latino celebrities, including Ana De La Reguera and Juan Manuel Marquez.

Rapper LL Cool J and model Chrissy Teigen front the U.S. version of the programme, which is executive produced by Stephen Merchant, John Krasinski and comedian Jimmy Fallon.

The hosting gig is the latest venture for Nicky Jam, who is making his acting debut in xXx: The Return of Xander Cage, the follow-up to 2002 action thriller xXx.

Nicky joins returning star Vin Diesel, as well as Miss Universe runner-up Ariadna Gutierrez, Samuel L. Jackson, Nina Dobrev, Ice Cube and Toni Collette in the new movie.
