Jack Whitehall will write and star in a brand new comedy on BBC Three.

Bad Education sees Whitehall playing Alfie, who is described as "the worst teacher ever to grace the British education system".

Whitehall has recently been praised for his role in the Channel 4 comedy drama Fresh Meat, which has already been renewed for a second series.

BBC Three controller Zai Bennett also revealed that he has commissioned two other comedies.

The Revolution Will Be Televised, which has been described as "Newsnight meets Trigger Happy TV", will see Heydon Prowse and Jolyon Rubinstein taking on politicians, celebrities and other public figures.

Meanwhile, Some Girls focuses on a group of teenage girls attending an inner-city school in London. The comedy has been penned by Bernadette Davis, who previously wrote Game On.

The news came as Bennett renewed Him & Her and brand new comedy Pramface.
