However, during a recent screening and Q&A for the television show, Louis Theroux revealed some of the big names he would love to have a sit-down chat with.

He revealed that "the door is always open for Tom Cruise."

He added that "if Lisa Marie Presley was still alive, she would be ideal as well.

"Dave Chapelle would be a big get, but possibly controversial, [and I’d love to speak to] Erkyah Badu and John Travolta."

Despite chatting with so many huge names, the broadcaster admitted that he still gets star-struck when interviewing A-listers.

He said: "It feels a bit like playing favourites to say who, but in the rushes, I think I can play it off…but when we look at the material, my face gives me away and sometimes I can look too excited.

"It can be a problem."

Announcing the new series, Louis Theroux shared on X (formally known as Twitter): "Try to remain calm! The BBC was so happy with the first run of the Louis Theroux Interviews that they decided to commission six more episodes featuring entirely new guests!"

Series two of Louis Theroux Interviews... airs on BBC Two and BBC iPlayer on Tuesday, October 7 from 9pm.
