Billy Connolly said he will not let illness keep him off the stage as he enjoys the best reception of his career on his latest stand-up tour.

The comedian and actor is currently starring alongside David Tennant and Rosamund Pike in the film What We Did On Our Holiday and is the latest star to trace his family roots in BBC One’s Who Do You Think You Are, screened last week.

He has also embarked on a sell-out tour of Scotland despite being diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease last year and receiving treatment for prostate cancer.
