I Kissed A Boy: The Reunion
Ahead of the final of BBC Three’s ground-breaking dating series, I Kissed A Boy, this one-off studio special will see Dannii Minogue getting the latest goss from the boys (their love lives, their newfound fame, any lingering chemistry...), celebrate the Masseria's greatest moments and take a deep dive into the drama and lead the boys through some outrageously funny party games. It's loud and it’s proud. Strap in for I Kissed A Boy: The Reunion.

This Is Gay
As part of a batch of brand new BBC Comedy Short Films, This is Gay - written and created by Kirk Flash - makes it’s linear debut on BBC Three. They’re called 'gays' - but what are they? Who are they? And why? Part mockumentary, part sketch show, This is Gay attempts to answer these important questions. Your guide, a figure simply known as 'Host,' takes you on a strange adventure with many stop-offs along the way, including renaissance Italy, modern-day London, a charming Welsh parish and a fridge.
Sunday 11 June at 9.45pm on BBC Three and available now via BBC iPlayer.

BAFTA nominated comedy drama film. In 1984, with Margaret Thatcher and the Conservative Party in power, a group of lesbian and gay activists, led by Mark Ashton, find unlikely allies in a collective of Welsh miners taking industrial action following pit closures.
With both groups equally despised by Thatcher, Ashton proposes a show of solidarity between them, but tabloid smears and a frosty reception from the miners' families threaten to derail his plans.
