Miley Cyrus and Justin Bieber sign up to host Punk'd

America's favourite hidden camera show Punk'd will be getting a makeover this year and teen sensations Miley Cyrus and Justin Bieber have already signed up to present episodes. 

The programme, which usually sees a dramatic prank played on an unsuspecting celebrity, is set to be hosted by a string of well-known pop stars in order to boost its ratings. 

Ashton Kutcher, the original host, left in 2007 but MTV have now confirmed plans to both revive and revamp the popular show using a star-studded line up to attract viewers. MTV executive Van Toffler explained:

"What better way to ring in the New Year than to let our audience know that Ashton and MTV are bringing back Punk'd in a big way. There's a new generation of unsuspecting suckers just waiting to be Punk'd by their famous friends, and fans will once again have a front row seat to see the shock on the faces of their favourite celebs."




The new series will air in the U.S. on March 19 and you can watch Cyrus mimic Bieber in a skit she filmed for Saturday Night Live below:
