Billy Connolly’s Ultimate World Tour
ITV, 9pm, Thursday
Last year, ITV brought us the documentary Billy Connolly & Me: A Celebration, which stirred up mixed emotions for fans.
On the one hand, it was great to see The Big Yin, but it felt so much like an obituary that a few viewers felt moved to take to social media to ask if they had missed some sad news.
So, many will breathe a sigh of relief to learn that although this new documentary finds Billy reflecting on his TV travels, it also features some upbeat new footage of the comedian exploring his home of Florida. As he travels around the Florida Keys, Everglades and Miami, he encounters alligators, Cuban domino players, a “takeaway” poet and wife Pamela, who joins him for a post-fishing trip meal.
