Grayson Perry signs 2-year C4 deal

Turner Prize-winner Grayson Perry has signed an exclusive deal with Channel 4 which will see him acting as an on-screen social anthropologist
The artist - described by the channel as "being somewhere between William Hogarth and Bruce Parry" - has agreed a two-year contract.
He has recently been seen in three-part series All In The Best Possible Taste, for which he investigated social classes around the UK. His findings were channelled into a series of tapestries which are on display in London.
Channel 4's commissioning editor for arts, Tabitha Jackson, said: "His skill not just as an artist, but as an artist-anthropologist somewhere between William Hogarth and Bruce Parry, gives us a unique opportunity to really explore the texture of contemporary life and to understand it in a different way."
