Mark Watson joins E4's All Star Driving School

Comedian finally dons his L-plates

Mark Watson is to learn to drive as part of the second series of E4’s All Star Driving School.

The comic will take part in a number of motoring challenges over the 15-part series which will be stripped across three weeks this autumn.

He has previously said: ‘I never thought I'd be good at driving and I don't want to drive.'

Watson never learned to drive as a teenager because his low self-esteem led him to believe he wouldn’t be good at it, and writing on his blog a few  years ago, he said that ‘the more you go through life not having done it, the more it feels silly to try to do it.’

Also taking part in the new series of All Star Driving School are Towie’s  James ‘Arg’ Argent, Coronation Street actor Mikey North, The Saturdays singer Vanessa White, Made in Chelsea’s Victoria Baker-Harber,  Brooklyn Beckham’s ex Tallia Storm, The Vamps’ Tristan Evans, Hollyoaks actress Ruby O’Donnell and Famalam actor Tom Moutchi.
