Jayne joins robots.

Tyneside tv star Jayne Middlemiss is to join Craig Charles on the cult series Robot Wars when it comes to Channel Five this autumn, it was revealed last night.

For fans of Miss Middlemiss, the show will be one of the highlights of the channel's autumn schedule.

The gladiatorial combat show was ditched by BBC2 earlier this year, but salvaged by Five - who hope the former Top of the Pops presenter's trademark Geordie energy will boost ratings.

The 29-year-old Bedlington-born star is currently playing onscreen matchmaker in a Blind Date-style programme called What Women Want. Robot Wars is the latest TV highlight in a seven-year career which has included stints on pop show, The Ozone, and Channel 4's fashion show, She's Gotta Have It.
