    Idris Elba is to interview Sir Paul McCartney for a BBC special

    The 'Luther' actor will sit down with the legendary Beatles musician for a special show, to be broadcasted on BBC One and BBC iPlayer in December, and on BBC Radio 2 and BBC Sounds


    Paul said: "I’m looking forward to sitting down to a chat with the mighty Idris!"

    Whilst Idris added: "When I was asked if I wanted to speak to Paul McCartney, after I realised it wasn’t a joke, I immediately said yes … who wouldn’t?! I am a massive fan of Paul’s! His work has inspired and driven me as a musician, and once I get through the shock of sharing the stage with him, I’m excited to talk about his music and craft. What an honour! Looking forward to sitting with you Paul."

    The 60-minute special will see Paul discuss his career and the writing process behind some of his biggest songs, with actor Idris also set to quiz the musician on how he continues to be inspired and stay creative. Fans will also get a chance to see Paul's iconic 2018 Cavern Club performance.

    Kate Phillips, Acting Controller of BBC One, commented: "Paul McCartney has undoubtedly created some of the UK’s best loved songs, songs which are known throughout the world, so I’m thrilled that he’ll lift the lid on how he continues to create lyrics and music that will forever stand the test of time. The must see combination of Paul in conversation with super fan, Idris Elba, as well as an incredible live performance from the Cavern, are the perfect Christmas presents for BBC audiences."
