Sky Arts‘ controversial Urban Myths will return with a new season next year. The series, which recreates rumoured tales about celebrities, came under fire earlier this year after its portrayal of Michael Jackson, with Jackson’s daughter Paris saying: “it makes me want to vomit“.

This season will feature two comedians as music legends. We will see Noel Fielding as Alice Cooper  in the episode The Dali and The Cooper which will tell the story of Cooper befriending artist Salvador Dali – played by David Suchet – in 1973 and attending a bizarre birthday party at Dali’s home.

Meanwhile Jack Whitehall will portray Marc Bolan in the episode When Bowie Met BolanBowie will be played by Luke Treadaway. The episode imagines Bowie and Bolan striking up a friendship years before their success while painting their shared manager’s office.

The new season of Urban Myths airs 2018.
