Reggie Yates Extreme UK: BBC Three

Reggie Yates is one of my firm favourites on BBC Radio 1. Actually, he is the only person I can stand to listen to. He has a great sense of humour and brings a fresh sound to the radio, and now luckily for us, onto our screens. Previously Reggie discussed Russia, but now he is looking at our own soil.
Reggie reminds me of a mix of Ross Kemp (who I love) and Louis Theroux. He is not scared to speak about tough subjects and goes to where the story is really happening. This documentary looks at how gay people are treated within Britain, and how different cultures react to the subject, making the documentary more representative of our multicultural country, where not everyone is going to agree. As Reggie finds out, there is a lot of hate going on towards the LGBT communities.
Overall, the documentary is a must-watch for those who want to see clealy how far the UK has actually come in accepting everyone as they come. Furthermore, it throws up a few scary questions concerning how much resistance to equality there still is.
