Theroux, who will shoot the upcoming three-part series over in the US, described it as an 'amazing challenge'.

"It feels like a whole cultural, almost sea change in how the world is part of the post-Brexit wave of populism," he told The Mirror.

"The challenge with Trump would be… something so abhorrent that walks on two legs and is a human being, you have to explore where his foibles come from."
