One of Britain’s most popular comics will soon retrace the steps of her idol on a visit to Morecambe.

Miranda Hart will be filming her new BBC programme about her love for our very own Eric Morecambe right here in the town of his birth.

The star of hit BBC comedy ‘Miranda’ will explore Eric’s roots for a ‘Who Do You Think You Are?-style documentary called ‘My Hero’.

Keep your eye on The Visitor for more on Miranda’s visit once details become available.

Another new documentary about Eric’s life will be shown on TV next week.

Bring Me Morecambe and Wise will air on Gold on Wednesday, November 21 at 9pm.

It features an interview with Eric’s widow Joan, rare and unseen footage, and tributes from celebrity fans including Hugh Dennis and Chris Tarrant.
