Melissa, an executive producer of the style programme, will step in front of the cameras to join Giuliana Rancic and celebrity stylist Brad Goreski on the E! network show later this summer (15).

Producers have announced a revolving cast of celebrity guests will join the trio as co-hosts each episode.

Fashion Police has been in the headlines ever since Joan Rivers' death last year (14), which forced show bosses to seek out a replacement.

Comedienne Kathy Griffin briefly filled the void, but she quit shortly after show regular Kelly Osbourne exited the programme in February (15), following a bust-up with executives over an ill-advised joke Rancic made about teen star Zendaya Coleman's red carpet look at the Oscars.

The show has been on hiatus since March (15), and will return with Melissa Rivers in August (15).
