Well this was only a matter of time. Fresh from taking on the Scientologists in his recent controversial documentary, Louis Theroux has decided to move on to the world's most polarising figure - President Donald Trump.

In a new three-part series for the BBC, the journalist will head to America for what he describes as an 'amazing challenge'.

"It feels like a whole cultural, almost sea change in how the world is part of the post-Brexit wave of populism," he told The Mirror.

"The story seems to change every day with Trump. There's something new bubbling under. It's hard to get your head around such a big subject.

He went on to say: "The challenge with Trump would be… something so abhorrent that walks on two legs and is a human being, you have to explore where his foibles come from."

Theroux added: "Hopefully people will like it. It's good."

We think it's going to be YUGE.
