Louis Theroux revealed he spent much of lockdown watching his own documentaries, proving once and for all that he is one of the most relatable stars out there.

The 51-year-old has fronted some incredible programmes throughout his career, including an in-depth look into Scientology, and he even spoke to Tiger King’s Joe Exotic way before Netflix made him a worldwide name.

During an appearance on the One Show, he confessed that he would often make a drink and settle down to watch some of his most memorable specials during lockdown.

Well, why not?

‘I don’t know what this says of me, I don’t think it’s anything good…,’ he told hosts Rylan Clark-Neal and JJ Chalmers.

‘When I’d had a couple of drinks, sometimes I got a weird urge to watch one of my old programmes. Not all the way through.


‘Maybe it was a reminder of like, “I used to be a globetrotting documentary maker, remember those days? Here I am cooped up.”

‘I’d have a few drinks and then maybe I’d get on my phone, I’d dial up iPlayer – where you can get all my documentaries, by the way. They’re all up there…

‘Then I’d watch one of my own shows and think, “Yeah, he was good. Remember that guy? He was very forensic, he was an acute questioner, he was a fearless interrogator. He wasn’t a man who slobs around his house in his pyjamas, shouting at his children and snatching their phones.”’

Well there will soon be another programme to add to Louis’ binge-watching list – and ours – as he will be speaking to Joe Wicks for an upcoming documentary.

The fitness guru helped to keep millions occupied and healthy with his famous lockdown workouts, which earned him a special place in all our hearts.

He will soon be back on our screens but focusing on mental health and his own childhood.

It promises to be an emotional watch, with some scenes leaving him ‘buckled’.

In the programme, Joe will be seen speaking to family and friends as he recalls his early days, and how his childhood motivated his current lifestyle.

He will also explore what can be done to improve the mental health and wellbeing of children across the country.

Bring it on.

The One Show continues on weekdays at 7pm on BBC One.
