Residents of 'Benefits Street' will be given the chance to respond to critics in a follow-up documentary to the series which was set in Birmingham.
The show followed people living on benefits in Birmingham's James Turner Street over a 12 month period and attracted widespread media attention. It also prompted debate in parliament over welfare dependancy.
The one-off documentary, 'Benefits Street: The Last Word', will feature regulars from the show, who will discuss their experience of living on benefits and the reaction to the series.
A Channel 4 spokesman said a live debate which aims to "shine a spotlight on the range of issues brought to the fore by Benefits Street" will follow the documentary.
