The TLC Channel is launching in the UK next month.
The Discovery Networks international station - dubbed "the world's biggest female entertainment channel" - will launch on April 30, showing hit US shows alongside original British series.
Among the UK shows which will broadcast on the channel is 'Ultimate Shopper', which will see Holly Valance, Brix Smith Start and Paul Hartnett judge the style decisions of self-proclaimed fashionistas, and 'Your Style In His Hands', where Lisa Snowdon helps four husbands and boyfriends dispose of their partner's clothes and get them a whole new wardrobe.
Documentaries will include 'Undercover Mums'. The show, fronted by Dawn O'Porter, will find out just how much parents know about their teenagers when they are left alone.
In addition, the hit US shows 'Here Comes Honey Boo Boo' and 'Breaking Amish' will be broadcast on the new channel, as will Oprah Winfrey's latest programme 'Oprah's Next Chapter'.
Susanna Dinnage, SVP & General Manager, Discovery Networks UK, said: "TLC is a unique entertainment channel that brings together a huge range of characters from the UK and US. It is full of stories that will get people talking and we hope it will become part of the rich and varied TV culture in the UK."
TLC will be available on Sky (channel 125), Virgin Media (channel 167), BT Vision (channel 875) and YouView on the TalkTalk Player.
