Sir Elton to Participate in Connolly TV Special

Written by Chief Editor.

Billy Connolly & Me: A Celebration marks the showbiz veteran's five decades in comedy with classic clips, new footage, fan revelations, and an interview with the man himself.

The one-hour ITV special airs on the 18th of April at 9 p.m.
 
Sharing personal memories are names like Elton, Judi Dench, Andy Murray, David Tennant, and Eric Idle.
 
Stand-ups Peter Kay and Adam Hills reveal how Connolly inspired their comic careers. The entertainer's wife Pamela talks about life with Billy from their new Florida home. 
 
Those tuning in will also hear from Billy’s public - from students to pensioners, from Scotland to Qatar – telling heartening, emotional tales of how the 74-year-old helped them find love, give birth, change career, tackle obstacles and even come to terms with their disabilities.
