The man in a Mr Bean mask threw a punch. Its intended recipient, without mask, was pulled away by his girlfriend just in time.

Ashley Banjo faces his biggest-ever challenge as he attempts to get the whole town of Stockton-on-Tees on its feet and dancing in the streets in a brand new series,
Ashley Banjo's Big Town Dance.

The people of Stockton had their lives turned upside down when Ashley and his dance troupe Diversity hit their streets to create the UK's largest street dance. In his most ambitious dance project to date, Ashley aimed to persuade the people of this northern market town to join him in an energetic and dazzling street-dance spectacular that would unite the community through the power of dance.

Boasting three dance halls in its heyday, Stockton was bursting at the seams with people ready to jitterbug, jive, shuffle, and swing. But by the 1970s the dance halls had closed and it seemed Stockton had forgotten its moves.

Like a lot of UK towns, Stockton was facing tough times so Ashley and Diversity were given two months to turn the town spirit around.

In Ashley Banjo's Big Town Dance, he'll start by bringing together people who had similar jobs but who had never met, from bus drivers and street sweepers, nurses and teachers, to pub landlords and policemen.
As the volunteers come together, personal journeys are revealed as individuals overcome emotional and physical obstacles in a heart-warming common mission to come together and meet the challenge. Then, for one day only, Stockton's high street is transformed as Ashley's proteges bring their routines together. He'll lead the whole town in an unforgettable, show-stopping street-dance finale. It's going to be epic.
Ashley Banjo's Big Town Dance starts on Sky 1 HD from 8th January at 8pm.
