Take That star Howard Donald is taking language lessons ahead of his judging role on the German version of Got To Dance so he can converse with contestants in their native language.

The singer has signed up as a panellist on the show, and he's doing all he can to embrace his new job.

His bandmate Mark Owen tells Mtv U.K., "He's actually doing it in German... he's been having a teacher and his intention is to speak German, which will be incredible."

The programme will debut in Germany next month (Jun13).
