US reality TV star and former Olympic athlete Bruce Jenner will star in a new documentary series about his new life as a woman.

Jenner, best known to British viewers for his appearances in Keeping Up with the Kardashians, recently came out as transgender in an interview in the US.

Almost 17 million people tuned in to see Jenner tell ABC News that he identifies as a woman.

The eight-part documentary series, which promises to tell the "intimate story" of his "transition", will be on E!

Jenner, who won a gold medal in the decathlon at the 1976 Olympics, was married to Kris Kardashian for many years and is step-father to four of her children including Kim Kardashian.

Jeff Olde, executive vice president at the channel, said: " Bruce is incredibly courageous and an inspiration, and we are proud to be entrusted with this deeply personal and important story.

"This series will present an unfiltered look as Bruce boldly steps into uncharted territory and is true to himself for the first time."
