Davina McCall will present a new show called 'This Time Next Year' which will feature a 'time travel' twist

Davina McCall will host a new show with a time travel twist.

The 47-year-old presenter has signed up for 'This Time Next Year' which will feature members of the public who want to make a huge change in their lives, such as losing weight or finding love.

According to Digital Spy, the participants will reveal to the studio audience what their plan is before coming back 'moments' later to reveal how they achieved it.

However, in reality, a full year will have passed.

Andrew Mackenzie, Chief Creative Officer of the Twofour Group, which is producing the new show, said: "This series breaks the form of the traditional makeover format in resisting the temptation to document the process of transformation.

"Instead we've chosen to ignore the typical production model and concentrate instead on delivering reveal after reveal."

The series will feature six hour-long episodes.

Meanwhile, Davina recently admitted to harbouring doubts about her presenting talents, despite enjoying a hugely successful career.

She told The Sun newspaper: "I remember presenting the BAFTAs and thinking it was ridiculous and I didn't know what I was doing.

"I wonder if, say, Graham Norton is also thinking, 'What am I doing?'"

However, Davina is also philosophical about her failings and said she's always keen to learn from them.

She reflected: "I'm not perfect, I am learning along the way from my mistakes.

"Nobody likes failing. It doesn't feel good.

"But if you learn from it and move on that's brilliant."
