Speaking about the show, which will air this autumn and is written by written by Tom Edge (The Midnight Beast), acting deputy head of Channel 4 comedy Fiona McDermott, has said: "Scrotal Recall is a brilliantly written modern comedy, a skilful mix of compelling love story, instantly original characters and, erm… STDs. We're totally thrilled that we've got such a talented and exciting cast to bring it all to life."

Murray Ferguson, chief executive for the show's production company, Clerkenwell Films, added: "This is a unique comedy with a fantastic cast, brimming with humour, heart and mild genital discomfort."

Johnny Flynn and his band The Sussex Wit will be playing live at independent label Transgressive's 10th birthday celebrations at The Barbican on September 30, alongside Mystery Jets. He released his third album 'Country Mile' in 2013. His film with Anne Hathaway, Song One, premiered at the Sundance Film Festival.
