Scottish stand-up Kevin Bridges has secured his first primetime show on BBC One.

What's The Story? will feature Bridges getting to the bottom of burning questions such as 'Why would any self-respecting party-goer want to take a microwave to the party?' and 'Is it possible to buy a Nissan Micra for 40 quid?'

Bridges' comedy and entertainment series will look into his family life, friends and upbringing in Clydebank.

"I'm delighted at the news that someone at the BBC has deemed me worthy enough to be let loose with a camera crew in an attempt to make something funny," said Bridges.

"I'm excited at being given this opportunity and to be able to produce the show from Scotland is an added bonus. It'll be great to see something on national TV made from Scotland that doesn't have an appeal for witnesses before the closing credits."

BBC One controller Danny Cohen, who announced the show at the Edinburgh TV Festival this weekend, added: "It's great to have a major new show for BBC One starring one of Scotland's brightest new talents.

"Kevin is a unique comedian, and he's part of our plan to develop the next generation of talent for BBC One."
