Next week Sir Lenny Henry turns 60, and this special programme looks back at his varied career, as well as featuring new material.

Interviewed by fellow knight Sir Trevor McDonald (rather than Sir Trevor McDoughnut), they look back at his comedy, his more recent stage work, and his involvement in Comic Relief. There are also new sketches featuring impressions of Stevie Wonder and Stormzy.

The Lenny Henry Birthday Show is on BBC One at 20.00.
