Jessie J Takes On British History With Russell Brand

Jessie J has an unlikely new role – talking about history on a new Sky Atlantic series!

The British will tell the story of Great Britain and Ireland, from the Romans up to the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II, and will feature Jessie, Russell Brand, Dame Helen Mirren, Colin Jackson, and Frank Lampard, among others.

Talking about the programme, Russell said: “It’s nice to be able to reach back into the past and feel that you have an identity that’s built on an oceanic, rolling history.”

With Jessie and Russell‘s involvement, it’s sure to be a history lesson with a difference! You can tune in from September 6. BS
