Kevin Bridges will host two shows for the BBC based around the upcoming Scottish referendum.

The Scottish stand-up will host 45-minute special Live at the Referendum from the Theatre Royal in Glasgow, which will feature a host of top comedians from across the UK. It will air in September.

Bridges will also head out onto the streets of Scotland for What's the Story - Referendum Special, where he will try to find out what the independence vote actually means to his fellow Scots.

The comedian is also hosting stand-up show Live at the Commonwealth on BBC One in July, which will be part of the Glasgow Commonwealth Games celebrations this summer.

"It's a huge year for Scotland with the referendum and the Commonwealth Games, the European Music Awards and the Ryder Cup," said Bridges.
