The youngest of the Kardashian sisters, Khloé, is to host Kocktails with Khloé - billed as a "prime-time, hybrid talk series" - for lifestyle network FYI in the US.

The show will be set in the reality star's kitchen and will see celebrity guests invited for dinner parties, with cooking and pop culture among the topics of conversation and party games also promised.

Production on the first season's eight, one-hour episodes will begin immediately.

Kardashian will also serve as executive producer.

In a statement, she said: "I'm lucky that I've been able to invite fans into my life and home on a weekly basis and this show will give me an opportunity to continue to do that with new and exciting guests."

It was also reported on Tuesday that Kardashian and Lamar Odom have signed their divorce papers, a year-and-a-half after they were first filed.
