Louis Theroux has become a TikTok star

The 51-year-old documentary maker wrote and performed a rap on his 'Weird Weekends' series during the 1990s and has now been remixed by DJ duo Duke and Jones.

The rap, called 'Wiggle Wiggle', has now gone viral on the social media platform and has soundtracked over 435,000 vides on the app, with Ant and Dec among the stars who have danced to it online.

An insider told The Sun newspaper's Bizarre column: "Louis hasn’t been involved in the rap becoming this massive viral sensation on TikTok but he has found it very amusing.

“People have been lapping up the remix, which is hilarious because he raps his verse so politely.

“But it has clever and fun lyrics and people just keep talking about how they can’t get it out of their heads.”

Meanwhile, Louis is set to interview the rapper Stormzy for his new TV series.

The star will chat to the British musician both on tour and at home in an in-depth encounter as part of his new six-episode BBC Two and BBC iPlayer show, which currently has the working title 'The Louis Theroux Interviews'.

Louis said: I’m so excited to be embarking on this new series - something very different to the kind of TV I normally make.

"This will be a chance to meet and spend time with people I admire, getting to know them, having long form and revealing conversations, with honesty, emotion, and humour.

"To be kicking off with the genius that is Stormzy is proper pinch-me stuff. I can’t wait to get going."
