'Glee' star Kevin McHale has signed up to host new E4 panel show, 'Virtually Famous'. The show will look at the web's top viral trends on social media

Glee's Kevin McHale will host a new E4 panel show.

The actor, who is best known for playing Artie Abrams on the hit musical comedy show, will host 'Virtually Famous', which will look at the biggest viral moments on social media networks such as Twitter, YouTube and Vine.

Each week, Kevin will oversee two teams - led by comedian Sean Walsh and Radio 1's Chris Stark - as they battle it out for points by answering questions about viral memes, popular Twitter posts, infamous clips on YouTube and more.

The people behind the viral sensations will also be invited on to the show for special guest appearances.

Kevin's new role comes as 'Glee' enters its final season.

The award-winning show - which also stars Lea Michele, Chris Colfer, Naya Rivera and Darren Criss - will end in 2015 after six years.

'Glee' creator Ryan Murphy announced the show's end last year, revealing that he originally intended the final moments to feature Lea's character, Rachel Berry, and Finn Hudson - played by the late Cory Monteith, who tragically died in July 2013.

However, Ryan says the reworked series finale will be "satisfactory" and will honour Cory.
