Furious residents on Benefits Street are planning to protest against TV producers filming a catch-up show – by wearing White Dee MASKS whenever the cameras are rolling.

Dozens of people living on the now notorious James Turner Street in Winson Green, Birmingham, have vowed to scupper any future filming project.

The six-part series, which aired on Channel 4 in January, sparked national debate and made household names of residents including White Dee.
