Kieron Richardson to front new doc

Kieron Richardson will front a documentary on same-sex parents.

The "Hollyoaks" actor - known for portraying Ste Hay in the soap - has teamed up with All4 for a forthcoming currently-untitled one-off show that will explore parenting in the LGBT - lesbian, gay, bisexual and transexual - community as this year marks the 50th anniversary of the partial decriminalisation of homosexuality in England and Wales.

Kieron said: "It's an honour to be a part of this very exciting documentary, and also the significance of its place in marking the 50th anniversary of such a hugely important milestone in LGBT history. As an expectant father myself I am fascinated to learn about other people's experiences and also to hear their insight & perspectives on all the issues LGBT parents face. As part of the Channel 4 family, I cannot wait to go on this journey with the dream team that is All4 & Burning Bright."

The documentary will see Kieron meet parents and children within the LGBT community as he discovers more about the world of surrogacy and modern parenting, the challenges faced, and finding out how rewarding the experience can be.

Joshua Buckingham, Commissioning Editor for All 4, said: "For us at All 4, this important anniversary is about celebrating love and relationships in all their forms. We're extremely proud to be working with Burning Bright and Kieron to explore, challenge and learn what parenting and family means in 2017."

The documentary is expected to hit television screens later on in the summer.
