Channel 4 have commissioned an hour-long musical imagining of Prince Andrew's life.

Written by Kieran Hodgson, who also stars as Prince Andrew, and with original music co-written by Freddie Tapner, the one off will be produced by Hat Trick Productions.

The satirical send-up of the life and times of the duke set to a musical score will tap into key events, relationships, and controversies royal’s life, including a 'reimaging' of his infamous Newsnight interview with Emily Maitlis.

The programme was commissioned as part of a new slate of programming to celebrate Channel 4's 40th Anniversary.

Channel 4 controller Ian Katz said: "From musical satire about Prince Andrew to an exploration of cancel culture in art via men with very large penises, this season shows that Channel 4 is still as mischievous, disruptive and distinctive as when it was born 40 years ago...

"Instead of a nostalgia-thon of highlights from the last four decades, we are celebrating with a collection of irreverent, thought-provoking and hugely entertaining shows that no other broadcaster would air. If we must age, we plan to do it disgracefully."

More details will be revealed in due course.
