Through his awkward yet persuasive interviewing style, Louis Theroux has become a staple of the BBC's factual broadcasting thanks to his hard hitting documentaries. His Louis Theroux Interviews shows are a little more light-hearted, though.

Season 2 started with former heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua to discuss AJ's "meteoric rise in the world of boxing to more recent humbling defeats". Former The Libertines frontman Pete Doherty followed; a musician who has had countless struggles with drug addiction and general rock superstardom since his massive popularity in the early 2000s.

Then it was the turn of Dame Joan Collins, who — aged 90 — has had an extensive 70-year career as both actress and author, and yet is probably still best known for her five marriages. Pop sensation Raye and whistleblower Chelsea Manning followed, with actor/rapper Ashley Walters rounding out the series.
