Sir Michael Parkinson is to host another series of his Parkinson: Masterclass for Sky Arts.

The series sees the veteran interviewer meet performers from a range of arts disciplines and gain an insight into their craft.

The line-up for the new run, which starts on Tuesday March 18, includes comedian Eddie Izzard, magician Dynamo, stage actor Simon Russell Beale and singer-songwriter Ellie Goulding.

“Masterclass is an innovative series, and it is the set of interviews I’ve always wanted to do because you never know what you might discover about an artist and their craft,” says the 78-year-old, who will also be meeting dancer and choreographer Akram Khan, classical guitarist Milos Karadaglic and percussionist Dame Evelyn Glennie. “I hope the viewers will find the demonstrations of their artistic talents as inspiring and thought-provoking as I do.”
