Pansexual actor and model Cara Delevingne is set to host a new BBC docuseries focusing on sexuality, gender and identity.

According to Deadline, Carnival Row star Delevingne will make her first foray into non-fiction for the six-part docuseries, which will be available on BBC Three and Hulu.

The working title for the series is Planet Sex and sources have described it as a “high-end” documentary, exploring big questions of sexual orientation, gender identity, attraction, relationships and pornography.

In hosting the show, Delevingne will reportedly also throw herself into experiments conducted by world-leading sex researchers and visit communities with unusual views on sexuality and gender.

Filming for the docuseries has recently started up again after it began earlier this year, but was put on hold during the coronavirus pandemic.

Planet Sex is created and executive produced by Delevingne and Fox executive Simon Andreae, and was originally commissioned BBC Three controller Fiona Campbell, head of BBC science Jack Bootle and Sreya Biswas.

Cara Delevingne recently came out as pansexual: ‘I fall in love with the person – and that’s that.’

Model, actor and singer Cara Delevingne revealed in June, 2020, that she identifies as pansexual.

In an interview with Variety as the magazine’s Pride issue cover star, she explained: “I always will remain, I think, pansexual.

“However one defines themselves, whether it’s ‘they’ or ‘he’ or ‘she’, I fall in love with the person – and that’s that. I’m attracted to the person.”

Delevingne also explained that her relationship with gender is fluid, adding: “The thing is with me, I change a lot. I feel different all the time.

“Some days, I feel more womanly. Some days, I feel more like a man.”

In May, Delevingne and Ashley Benson split after almost two years together.

They officially confirmed their relationship during Pride month, 2019, when they shared a video of themselves kissing online. A month earlier, they’d been pictured carrying a leather sex bench into their LA home.
