Fashion fans will want to tune in to BBC Four at 9pm on Thursday 26th January for 'We'll Take Manhattan', a one-off drama about 1960s fashion power couple David Bailey and Jean Shrimpton.

Photos and a short preview clip have now been released, giving us a sneak peek at what we can expect from Aneurin Barnard and Doctor Who star Karen Gillan, who play the photographer and so-called 'unconventional' model who took the world of style by storm in the swinging 60s.

'We'll Take Manhattan' tells the story of the couple's first meeting and subsequent photoshoot in New York for Vogue magazine in 1962.

Gillan said of the opportunity to play 'the Shrimp', "Jean Shrimpton is an icon of the Sixties and I am so excited to be playing somebody who had such a lasting impact on the fashion world. I can't wait to take on the challenge of bringing Jean and Bailey's fascinating love story to life. Sixties here I come!"

She definitely looks the part, don't you agree?
