Little-known American TV star Scott Bairstow has been chosen to take on the ultimate role - as GOD.

The actor will be revealed as the big guy in the season finale of religious drama TOUCHED BY AN ANGEL, which will air on 27 April (03).

TV boss CHRIS DAVIDSON, the vice-president of programming at the show's network CBS, says, "When it became clear this would be the last season, that was the appropriate thing to do."
