So what is the series about? The six-part comedy follows an all-girl Muslim punk band – called Lady Parts, of course – who are on a mission to find a lead guitarist and score their first proper gig.

Chatting about the series to Vogue, Anjana, who plays Amina, said: "This is a show about a diverse group of women and for it to be about joy feels radical. We're so used to seeing characters like these having their stories tied to pain or oppression."
