It's back, it's live, it's tackling the issues that matter to local communities and it's In Your Corner.

Wendy Austin and the In Your Corner team return for a new six-part series on BBC One NI starting on Monday, 27 February at 19:30 GMT.

Wendy will be joined again by Claire McCollum, visiting each county in Northern Ireland during the six weeks.

There is also a new face in the team with award-winning reporter Chris Moore investigating issues on behalf of viewers.

The programme will be broadcast live from the heart of communities across Northern Ireland tackling the topics, concerns and problems of local people - no matter how big or how small - whether it's social, health, financial; a personal matter or an issue that's affecting the whole community or the entire country.
