Music documentary spoof following former Spandau Ballet superstars, siblings Martin and Gary Kemp.

The Kemps: All True sees Rhys Thomas OBE interview the pair about their lives and careers following Spandau Ballet's 40th anniversary celebrations in December.

As part of Spandau Ballet, the pair have sold more than 25 million albums with 23 hit singles worldwide, and in 2011 they received a BMI award after hit single True became one of the most played songs in US history.

As well as looking back at their musical history, the show reveals Gary and Martin's other passions: Martin attempts to launch a new film franchise - The Hardest British Bastards of the Galaxy - and Gary has his own Vegan meat-substitute, Wonge.

Perry Benson features as their brother Ross Kemp (not that one) and there are also guest performances from Simon Day, Lucy Montgomery, Anna Maxwell Martin, Daniel Mays, Alan Ford, Shirlie Holliman, Tony Way, Nick Robinson, Christopher Eccleston and Michael Kitchen.
