Louis Theroux Reminds Fans There Are 50 Hours Of His Shows On iPlayer

As we all hunker down in our homes, trying to keep a safe distance from anyone else during the coronavirus outbreak, many are wondering what to do with themselves.

Well, national treasure and world-renowned journalist Louis Theroux may have the answer: just binge-watch (almost) every programme he has ever made.

Taking to Twitter, the 49-year-old kindly informed us all that we could use our newfound 'me time' to go through his back catalogue of shows, which are available on iPlayer.

He wrote: "There are fifty-odd hours of my old shows on BBC iPlayer, on the off chance you are self isolating and bored."

Now, if you're one of the very few amongst us who has yet to sample the bizarre worlds Theroux has inhabited most of his adult life, then you are in for a treat.

The BBC has stockpiled 42 of his documentaries, including his Weird Weekends, which saw him spend time with magician Paul Daniels, boxing legend Chris Eubank and politician Ann Widdecombe.

But it also includes some of his more serious pieces that deal with issues like prostitution, gun violence, trophy hunting and mental health.

It also has Theroux's 2016 documentary that looked into the harrowing crimes committed by former DJ Jimmy Savile, who was later outed as a paedophile - a follow-up to his programme When Louis Met...Jimmy, which was first broadcast in April 2000.

Basically, there's a lot of stuff on there that will keep you both entertained and informed during this trying time.

And once you've made your way through them all, you can head over to Netflix to check out its new doc about one of Theroux's former subjects Joe Exotic.

Tiger King is a true crime series about 57-year-old Joe Maldonado-Passage. You may remember him from Theroux's 2011 documentary America's Most Dangerous Pets, where he showed Louis around his cages that were filled with animals, including lions and tigers.

Or more recently, you may remember he was sentenced to 22 years in prison for a string of offences.

Netflix announced the documentary in a tweet, which said: "From the executive producer of FYRE: The Greatest Party That Never Happened comes #TigerKing, a new docuseries about Joe Exotic - a gun-toting polygamist who presides over an Oklahoma animal park - and the murder-for-hire plot that led to his arrest."

Let's all bring some positivity, support and fun to anyone who might find themselves in isolation as a result of the coronavirus spread. Need some entertainment? Join Isolation Nation: https://www.facebook.com/groups/coronasupport/
