Footage has just emerged of Professor Green coming head to head with Britain First supporters during a heated debate.

The clip, which is from the musician's Working Class White Men documentary, shows Pro Green being accused by the protesters of "defending rapists" while clashing with the deputy leader of the far-right organisation, Jayda Fransen.

Working Class White Men is a two part series featuring Professor Green - real name Stephen Manderson - and began on Channel 4 on Tuesday evening. The musician challenged the views of the Britain First protestors, but instead found himself being slammed for apparently "defending rapists".

Instead, Stephen suggested they were "inciting hatred" over the Rochdale grooming scandal. A group of nine Pakistani and Afghan were exposed to be running a child exploitation ring targeting young girls. The abuse happened between 2004 and 2009, and the men were sent to trial in 2012.

Pro Green's two-part special was widely praised by fans on Twitter, who rushed to show support for the musician as the scenes aired.

"Never thought professor Green would come across as an intelligent, articulate person. Talk about judging a book by its cover," praised one person watching from home.

"Working class white men Professor Green says to Britain First Bolton men don't get mad with immigrants get mad with the ruling class get mad with austerity. Well said that man," tweeted a second.

As a third added: "Great documentary on white working class young man really GREAT job keep it up hopefully there's more to come from you powerful stuff."

"Working class white men C4. Listen to the Professor he talks so much sense. Quality documentary Sir. More please ," urged someone else.

While a final exclaimed: "I bloody love and his documentaries ."

White Working Class Men airs Channel 4 at 9pm, Tuesday.
