Food YouTuber Elijah Quashie, aka the Chicken Connoisseur, has landed his very own TV series on Channel 4 as internet stars continue to take over the planet.
In The Peng Life – which is the working title – Elijah will travel across London as he samples food and fashion at cheap and elite level, to tell if the cheapest or most expensive one is best.
The winner will be crowned ‘The Pengest’ and he’ll also be joined by celebrity guests who’ll aid him in his search.
Elijah said: “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 mula. Hold tight.”
Executive producer Max Welch added: “Since we started Renowned Films, we’ve produced shows with some really gifted content creators, both in front of and behind the camera.
“Elijah’s no exception and we’re really excited to be working with him alongside Channel 4 on his first TV show.”
The Chicken Connoisseur, who counts Craig David and Wiley among his fans, previously saw a campaign started to get him to appear on Sunday Brunch.
