‘Massive thanks to the BBC for believing in the idea and for supporting us every step of the way. Expect more big stars, intimate access, and three times BAFTA winning excellence from yours truly.’

Clare Sillery, Head of Commissioning, Documentaries, added: ‘It is testament to Louis’ skill and genuine curiosity about people that in a series featuring very different individuals, he was able to make such an engaging set of films. 

‘With a range of subjects from Dame Judi Dench to Yungblud, it is impossible to pick a favourite episode. I am so delighted he’s making more, and cannot wait to see the line up for the next series.’

Louis most recently interviewed Rita Ora on his programme, which saw the singer, 32, look back on her ten years in showbiz.

Reflecting on her love life, she said in the interview: ‘I love love, I love being in love, it’s amazing and so fun. 

‘Who doesn’t? I live life to the fullest. I’m an extremely passionate person when it comes to love, but I don’t base my life on relationships.

‘I don’t base my moments on, ‘Oh, I’ll remember this because of that relationship’, that’s just an addition to my life. I’ve always been very adamant on focusing on me and my work.’

Rita also slammed the constant attention on her love life, saying relationships were just a positive addition as she is focused on herself and her work.

She continued: ‘Look, we are women. Men don’t get asked, ‘Oh, you’ve had 100 boyfriends or girlfriends’. Sometimes they do, but the majority of the time they don’t.

‘It comes with the territory, it’s part of the world that you’re in.’
