Stormzy To Join Louis Theroux For An In-Depth Conversation On BBC’s New Celebrity Interview Series

5 April 2022

Louis Theroux has been announced as the host of a new BBC interview series which will see the Bafta award-winning filmmaker sit down with Stormzy, among other stars.

Louis Theroux will speak to a different guest during each episode of the upcoming series, providing viewers with a deeper insight into some of the world’s most popular figures.

In the first episode of the six-part series, Theroux will sit down with the multi-award winning artist Stormzy for what’s been described as a “revealing encounter”.

“I’m so excited to be embarking on this new series – something very different to the kind of TV I normally make,” Theroux said. “This will be a chance to meet and spend time with people I admire, getting to know them, having long form and revealing conversations, with honesty, emotion, and humour.

“To be kicking off with the genius that is Stormzy is proper pinch-me stuff. I can’t wait to get going.”

More guests will be announced in due course, as will the launch date.
