The first episode of the programme aired last week and Michael is set to feature in episode three.

He was picked to feature on the programme after submitting some work he carried out while studying Fine Art at the University of Northampton.

We challenged Michael to creating a portrait of Jonathan and Becky to keep him occupied while on the train to our studio, the final outcome is below.
