Jane Austen superfan dresses in authentic Regency clothes

Meet Jane Austen superfan Zack Pinsent from Hove.

The self-taught period tailor does not own a pair of jeans, preferring to fashion his outfits on Regency styles.

Mr Pinsent is inspired by Hampshire author Jane Austen and stars alongside a host of other dedicated "Janeites" in a special documentary to mark the 200th anniversary of her death.

You can see My Friend Jane on Monday on BBC One in the south at 19:00 BST.
