My Hero: Miranda Hart on Eric Morecambe – Tonight, 9pm, BBC One

Comedian Miranda Hart explores the life of her comedy idol, Eric Morecambe, in a new programme on BBC One tonight.

She tells his story by retracing his steps, visiting the places he appeared with partner Ernie Wise, meeting people who knew him and introducing the performances that made her want to enter the comedy world.

The journey takes her across Britain, from Wales – where she talks to writer Eddie Braben, the man behind many of Eric and Ernie’s most famous TV moments – to the Essex studio of the artist who painted the entertainer at the height of his fame.

My Hero: Miranda Hart on Eric Morecambe is on BBC One and BBC One HD at 9pm tonight!
