Setting BackColor of GridView cell dynamically

I have a number of colours in a database linked to different conditions,
and this data is displayed in a gridview. I want to set the BackColor
of a gridview cell dependent upon this value, for example FF0000 etc.
The code I have used gives me the error 'specified cast is not valid' :

<asp:TemplateFi eld HeaderText="For ecast Type"
SortExpression= "ForecastDescri ption">
<ItemTemplate >
ID="lblForecast Type" Text='<%# Eval("ForecastD escription") %>'
BackColor='<%# Eval("ForecastC olor") %>' runat="server"> </asp:Label>
<ItemStyle Height="24px"
Width="50px" />
</asp:TemplateFie ld>

Any ideas how to do this?
