As Sir Lenny Henry turns 60 at the end of August, the BBC are celebrating with a one-off celebration of a man who has made a unique impact on British entertainment.
In 1975, a 16 year-old Lenny Henry bunked off school to appear on TV talent show New Faces, beginning a long and glittering career in comedy, theatre and film.
Recorded in front of a studio audience, the programme is hosted by Sir Trevor McDonald who of course Lenny impersonated for many many years as Trevor McDonut.
The one-off celebration promises to take a lighthearted look back at a career that started 43 years ago and hasn’t stopped since, as well presenting some brand new sketches on a range of topical subjects.
Judging by these first look photos, Lenny will be dressing up as Stormzy, Stevie Wonder, Trevor McDonut and of course randy OAP Donovan Bogarde.
