Billy Connolly’s Ultimate World Tour
 
“I’ve been to some magical places, met some wonderful people and had a great time – so relax, get yourself some space on the couch, open up the popcorn and get ready. Welcome to the ultimate world tour.” – Billy Connolly
 
Billy Connolly’s career has taken him to almost every corner of the globe and now, in this brand new one-off special for ITV, he takes viewers on a fresh trip around his new home state of Florida, stopping along the way to look back at his travels across the planet over the last 25 years.
 
Surprises are around every corner, as he tours Florida in his convertible classic car, fishing on the salt flats, tasting weird and wonderful food in the bars and restaurants, tracking crocodiles, sailing out on the Everglades and sampling the unique culture  in Miami, he remembers some highlights from tours to countries including Scotland, Canada and Australia.
 
Billy says: “It was exactly 25 years ago that I found myself taking the cameras out of the theatres and into the world. It’s a journey that’s taken me to far flung places and offered up once-in-a-lifetime experiences and I’m still discovering thrilling new stuff around every corner now I’ve pitched up in Florida.”
