Zawe Ashton is leading a hard-hitting investigation to uncover the truth about female genital mutilation in this documentary Stop Cutting Our Girls: A Comic Relief Special.

Starting her journey in East London, Zawe goes back to school to join an FGM workshop. As she realises how hard it can be for kids to talk about female body parts, she sees FGM isn't an easy topic to discuss.

Survivors will then recall their memories of being cut and the violent backlash they continue to endure for speaking out. After discovering British girls are flown abroad during 'cutting season', she talks to Border Force officers, before heading off to Kenya.

Once there, she meets with a 'cutter' who takes money for illegally cutting girls, and then heads off on a rescue mission in the middle of the night.
