Joan Bakewell and Frank Skinner present the competition to find the UK's most talented portrait artist, and Edinburgh is the setting for the first of two Scottish heats, where 12 hopefuls paint actress and impressionist Ronni Ancona, Downton Abbey writer Julian Fellowes and Helena Kennedy QC. The contestants include a professional artist who trained at the Royal Academy, a call-centre worker, an 18-year-old inspired by Leonardo Da Vinci and a man who paints on wood instead of canvas.
