BBC Scotland’s brand new TV show Getting Hitched Asian Style started on Thursday, March 7th.

The three-part series follows Saffron Events (one of Glasgow’s biggest Asian wedding planners) and all of the luxurious and glitzy weddings they throw.

Here’s what you should know about the comedic narrator Sanjeev Kohli, and where you might have seen – or heard – him before.
