Artist, conservationist and all-round TV legend Don Conroy has launched his own YouTube Channel where he will teach us how to draw - a great way to pass the time while we must remain indoors.

Taking to Twitter to share the good news Conroy revealed that he was launching the channel "due to popular demand, of course".

He added: "Don't forget to have a look in and we will be creative together".

Conroy's first video shows you how to draw a clown as "we all need a little bit of cheering up". All you need to get going in a pencil and paper.
