Louis Theroux interviews Stormzy

In this brand-new series, Louis Theroux interviews some of the biggest names in UK entertainment in his own inimitable style and is granted exclusive access to their lives at home and at work

In the first episode, Louis spends time with platinum selling rapper Stormzy. After two years out of the spotlight, Stormzy welcomes Louis into his home in South West London to sit down for a frank and revealing conversation that covers many aspects of his life; from his childhood to the breakdown of a high-profile relationship, and the pressures that come with being one of the country’s best loved musicians and role models.

Louis meets Stormzy at a transformative stage of his life. After an illustrious career that has seen him transform from social media rapper to Glastonbury headliner, Stormzy reflects on the highs and lows of his journey so far, whilst looking forward to the release of a new album and working to become the artist and the man he wants to be.

We also see Louis join Stormzy backstage in Glasgow on the last night of his sold out nationwide arena tour, watching him perform to thousands of excited fans. He attends Stormzy’s weekly Christian worship meeting and is introduced to sister Rachael and mum Abigail where they discuss Stormzy’s deepening relationship with God. Finally Louis hangs out with Stormzy and his team of musicians in the studio as they put the finishing touches to his yet to be released new album.
