JLC to don tights and become luchador
The tights are on and the gloves are off for Justin Lee Collins, who will step in the ring on TV in his quest to become a luchador - a formidable Mexican wrestler.

In Sky One's Justin Lee Collins: The Wrestler, which premieres on Thursday, the West Country love-or-hate figure will learn the tricks of the trade, doing all tricks including the ancient art of how to slap someone else properly and avoid any chance of causing blood clots.

Donning the traditional wear - a mask and a pair of tights, among other items - JLC will also meet a cavalcade of characters in the ring, including transvestite fighters and female wrestlers hell-bent on making him do a backflip before the end of his tenure.

It will mark part of a series involving JLC getting stuck into high diving, ten-pin bowling, ballroom dancing and surfing - though many will no doubt enjoy the Bristolian loudmouth getting a slap-chop or two from a wrestler.

In his last major project, JLC reunited the cast of Star Trek, with only William Shatner not making a return to the cast to fight the Gorn in a recreation of the famous scene from the Arena episode.
