Throughout his successful career, Billy Connolly has appeared in Hollywood films such as A Series of Unfortunate Events and Mrs Brown. In December 2020, he was the star of the ITV documentary Billy Connolly: It's Been a Pleasure, in which he revealed how his Born On A Rainy Day collection has given him "a new lease of life".
Billy told cameras: "I managed to get pictures together and people like them, which surprises me and amazes and delights me. It's a lovely thing to do with yourself."

Robert's now sold-out 'Mufasa' artwork took centre stage on the colossal chimney breast of Amye and Nathan's cathedral-style Lincolnshire home in this January 2021 episode of Grand Designs.
Robert told us: “It’s so fantastic that my art was on Channel 4, especially as it’s in someone’s home – so it means a lot to them, and this means a lot to me. I even went out and bought a new television!
"It’s great to have this recognition, and hopefully it will lead to more exciting things. I was just hoping the presenter (Kevin McCloud) wouldn’t ‘diss’ it – he’s always got a sarcastic comment about everything!”

Standing at over three metres tall, Lorenzo Quinn’s ‘Gravity’ sculpture caught the attention of Oscar-winning writer Neil Jordan, who also created the Sky Atlantic show Riviera.
Set in the south of France, the programme follows the turbulent lives of the rich and famous. Lorenzo’s sculpture – which signifies the need for balance in life – was the perfect contrast for the spectacular parties held in the grounds of a French businessman’s mansion.
Speaking on the piece, Lorenzo says: “It is essential to find a balance in life. Many times, that balance is achieved with the help of the people who surround us and that hold us firmly to the ground, and without whom we would float into perdition.”
