Three hour-long programmes, produced by Endemol’s Remarkable Television business, will be broadcast live from Media City UK’s outdoor piazza this summer.

The show will see host and fashion guru Gok Wan helping women to solve their dressing dilemmas ready for the holiday season. Katie Piper will also be on hand to offer step-by-step guides on beauty holiday maintenance.

Dock10 will be managing the productions by utilising the venue's connectivity and studio galleries, which link directly to the piazza.

Stephen Wild, managing director at Media City UK, 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."

Jonathan Harley from Dock10, said: "We’re delighted to welcome Endemol and Gok Wan to Media City UK - which was built with outside televised events in mind. They will benefit from Dock10’s many fibre connection points around the piazza and spread throughout the venue.

"It will enable them to get broadcast quality cameras cabled back to fully specified production control rooms, the big outdoor screen (controllable from the studios) and from our connection to the SIS satellite farm to get live pictures back to Channel 4 –all without the need for an outside broadcast truck."
