The six-part series will follow Danny, played by Little, and Shay, played by Carl Rice, who form a new label called Shady Records.

Vegas will play Shay's father in the comedy, which is currently filming in Manchester and will debut on BBC3.

A BBC spokeswoman explained: "En route they pluck a girl band from the obscurity of Superb'uns cake shop, get sued by Eminem, get lost in the Pennines - where they find the new Oasis - and get involved in a scam involving a Macedonian prostitute called Zora who has a revolutionary way of making shish kebabs."

Meanwhile BBC's head of comedy Kenton Allen told The Guardian: "'Massive' combines Ralf Little and Johnny Vegas with a terrific supporting cast and Damian Lanigan's vivid scripts about rock'n'roll lifestyles on a Primark budget. It's shaping up to be a unique comedy treat for this autumn on BBC3."
