Billy Connolly: It's Been A Pleasure

Sir Billy Connolly will perform one last stand up special on ITV.

The show is called Billy Connolly: It's Been A Pleasure, with the comedian appearing from his Florida home.

It's a sad day for fans of the star, who knew the end of his career was coming when he announced his retirement in March.

Connolly was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease in 2013.

While many hoped for one last stage tour, the Scotsman will be saying goodbye to his fans via the small screen.

A statement from ITV reads:

Sir Billy Connolly recently announced that he was officially stepping back from live stand-up performance.

To mark this major moment in comedy history, this star-studded one-hour special celebrates Billy's anarchic genius and life-affirming brand of humour.

There are also unique new insights from the woman who knows Billy best - his wife and soulmate, Pamela Stephenson.

His A-list fans will share their memories of Billy, send him personal messages and pick their all-time highlights from his glorious comedy catalogue. The man himself will react to their choices and reveal his own favourites."

Billy Connolly: It's Been A Pleasure is a definitive celebration of an all-time great. An uplifting, emotional and hilarious hour in the company of the legendary Big Yin at his entertaining best. It will make you laugh. It may even make you cry. A fitting send-off for a stand-up megastar.

Billy Connolly: It's Been A Pleasure will air on ITV this winter.
