A deaf actor is set to do sign language through a commercial break in Channel 4 programme The Last Leg on Friday.

The comedy series, which has been airing since 2012, will be broadcast from Rio to mark the end of the Paralympics.

The seven adverts will be signed by David Ellington, a deaf actor and artist.

He will lip-sync, dress up as a cupcake salesman and wear a swimming cap and trunks as part of the break.
