TV show tailor made for rapper Tinie

Rapper Tinie Tempah is turning presenter for a BBC programme looking at a major exhibition dedicated to late clothes designer Alexander McQueen.

It is one of a number of shows being tailor-made for viewers with access to the station's iPlayer over the coming months, starring figures such as Emma Thompson and Matt Berry.

Comedy

They also include a comedy written by Last Of The Summer Wine writer Roy Clarke, starring one of the show's lead cast members Russ Abbott.

Tempah's contribution is a private view of the McQueen exhibition Savage Beauty, which is being staged at the Victoria and Albert in London.

Berry has created Wild Love, a sequel to his mock wildlife documentary Lone Wolf, while Thompson stars in a spoof video to Bill Bailey's comedy track Love Song.

Abbott stars in Last Chance as Morris Roebuck, a man whose wife has left him and is leaving her a final recorded goodbye message - one of nine short Funny Valentine films to be launched on February 13, just ahead of Valentine's Day.

Champ

Also among the newly-commissioned programmes lined up in the near future will be an in-depth look at London Fashion Week, which will be hosted by model and 2013 Strictly Come Dancing champ Abbey Clancy.
