Show Me the Monet, Series 2 Episode 4 of 15

42-year-old Michael from Preston was an engineer for a major car manufacturer when a shock diagnosis at 28 turned his life upside down. While undergoing treatment, it was Michael's passion for painting which he had as a child that kept him going. Now he's got the chance to show his work to leading art critics, will they be as moved by his art as they are by his personal story?

Also facing the judges is 18-year-old Leon from Shropshire, a young and ambitious sculptor whose interest in his art was sparked in the kitchens of his family's Chinese restaurant when he discovered a talent for sculpting garnishes. His hopes rest with his sculpture entitled 'Sprint'.

18-year-old student, Mark may be studying English Literature, but his dream is to showcase his art in galleries all over the world. Will his black and white pencil drawing entitled 'Dido' get him a place in the exhibition and help to make his dream come true?
