BBC’s religious show Songs of Praise is set to feature a same-sex wedding in a groundbreaking new episode.

The long-running series, which broadcasts hymns sung at churches across the UK, will feature parts of a same-sex wedding service at an inclusive church on Sunday, August 18.

The episode will feature the wedding of Jamie Wallace and Ian McDowall at the Rutherglen United Reformed Church in Glasgow.

The pair are the first same-sex couple to marry at the church after the local congregation gave its backing.

Songs of Praise couple: Jesus taught about inclusion.

Speaking on Songs of Praise, Wallace explained: “Jesus preaches about love, inclusion, kindness, compassion.

“A good lady who comes to this church told us in one of our discussions, people will change, and don’t underestimate older people, either. They just need to think about it, and they’ll get there one day.”
