Endemol is overseeing the organisation of the live shows while dock10 will manage the productions by utilising the site-wide connectivity and studio galleries which link directly to the piazza.

The series will see Wan return to his tried and tested formula of advising women of all shapes and ages on how to look good.

Stephen Wild, managing director of MediaCityUK, said: “The Piazza is an impressive outdoor space that is perfect for activities of this nature. The Gok live fashion show is just one of many exciting happenings that we have planned over the summer period, for people living, working and visiting here to enjoy!”

The series was commissioned by Channel 4 head of features Gill Wilson and will be produced by Remarkable Television. The series will be executive produced by Kitty Walshe and series produced by Catherine Mann.
