A new Ted Bundy documentary is coming to the UK, and it looks like a must-watch for true crime fans.

Part of the Faking It series from discovery+, the one-off special will enlist the help of body language, linguistics and forensic psychology experts to examine footage of the infamous serial killer.

The one-hour doc promises to unpick "the micro-gestures, flinches and vocal fumbles that potentially signpost their guilt".

During the 1970s, Ted Bundy carried at least 30 brutal murders across seven different states, making him one of America's most prolific serial killers.

In Ted Bundy: A Faking It Special, experts will study police interrogation tapes and courtroom footage to reveal how Bundy was able to escape justice for so long, by distorting facts, creating confusion and manipulating the truth.

They will also examine his eve-of-execution interviews in which he finally confessed to being a murderer.

A spokesperson for discovery+ said: "Across the three specials, body language expert Dr Cliff Lansley, Professor of Linguistics Dawn Archer and Forensic Psychologist Kerry Daynes will meticulously analyse and pull out the potential tell-tale signs of deception captured on footage for each case.

"Whether it's the shrug of the shoulder, the slip of the tongue or clues in their psychological profile, the three experts will add to the conversation and ask, are they faking it?"

Other special episodes will focus on Michael Jackson and Chris Watts.

Ted Bundy: A Faking It Special airs from April on discovery+
