TYGER TAKES ON PORN (BBC3 9pm) FANS of BBC drama Outnumbered will know just how much Pete and Sue's eldest child, Jake, has grown up. Now, here's Tyger Drew Honey, who plays him, presenting his own grown up programme.

In this new series, Tyger, 18, pictured, examines issues affecting young people today, starting with porn.

According to statistics, over half of 15 to 17-year olds have accessed porn on a Smartphone or tablet and 25% of boys between 14 and 17 watch online porn once a week.

As for Tyger, it's a subject he knows a lot about. His father is porn star, "Ben Dover", who has made over 300 adult films and his mother, Linzi, was a porn actress and former editor of Penthouse.

During this hour-long episode Tyger asks how unlimited access to porn via the Internet has shaped his generation.

He gets the views of young people who are watching it and learns how it's changing their expectations of sex and affecting relationships, as well as meeting people working in the industry.

Although pitched at the younger generation, (hence the annoyingly goofy sketches that Tyger interjects with), if you're parents of teenagers wanting to get a handle on what yoof really think, this is eye-opening viewing.
