New comedians recruited as Last Leg Correspondents

Spin-off series for All4

Some of Britain’s best up-and-coming comics have been recruited as ‘correspondents’ for the Last Leg in a new spin-off series.

Tez Ilyas, Richard Gadd and Ivo Graham are among those who will be sent around the UK ‘to find out what the hell is happening outside of the studio in the big bad world’.

The Last Leg: Correspondents has been commissioned for Channel 4’s on-demand service All 4.

Each episode will be introduced by one of the show’s regular hosts – Adam Hills, Josh Widdicombe or Alex Brooker. Then Channel 4 says: ‘Each correspondent will approach their report from their own unique perspective, [dealing] with the stories in amusing, inventive and borderline ludicrous ways.’

In the first instalment, due to launch on All 4 soon, British Muslim Ilyas sets out to determine how people get radicalised. He’s pictured on the left of the picture above out on assignment.

LA PRINCESA DE WOKING

Emma Sidi has taken great care to replicate the authentic feel of 1980s Spanish-language telenovelas in this spot-on parody, set in contemporary small-town England and which she describes as 'a bit Acorn Antiques, bit Garth Marenghi'.

At her mother's untimely funeral, Becky Hello (a typical British millennial as imagined by Mexican writers who have never been to the UK) discovers she has inherited a fortune. But it isn't long before nefarious family members begin to circle, and Becky must keep her wits about her if she is to avoid the same fate as her mother.
