Billy Connolly is set to return to our TV screens after retiring from stand-up due to Parkinson's, according to reports.

The Big Yin has reportedly landed his own three-part telly series on ITV where he'll travel through the US.

The Scottish Sun reports that the programme - which has the working title Billy Connolly’s Great American Trail - will have Billy chatting to experts and descendants of Scottish immigrants.

A source told the publication: "[Billy] has been secretly working on the project and filmed footage for the show in March and June. 

"It’s going to be welcome news for his fans who thought he was going to be retiring for good."
