The Chicken Connoisseur exploded onto the scene back in 2016 with his hit YouTube series The Pengest Munch, where he reviewed London chicken shops. The Connoisseur — real name Elijah Quashie — isn't stopping at YouTube though. He's about to release a book, and now he's making the jump to terrestrial television.

Coming to Channel 4 later this year is The Peng Life. The show is going to cover more than just chicken, lookING at the most desired things that London has to offer — food, fashion, etc. — then samplING them at two different price points.

A show about the disparity in London's prices from Quashie could be fascinating, especially as there are accusations that his show was gentrifying the city's chicken shops. Or it could be 30 minutes of him showing off his latest pair of fresh creps, only time will tell.

Elijah comments:

On YouTube I do the chicken ting, but now on Channel 4 I'm reviewing everything! The cheapest stuff to the most expensive stuff. Basically the deadest stuff you'll ever find to the most expensive, baller status stuff. I'll see if it's worth the moolah. Hold tight.
