In the show, Elton tells Graham about his childhood growing up as Reg Dwight in post-war Pinner, Middlesex, and looks back at his rise to global super stardom in the 1970’s. He shares musical memories of the 80’s and 90’s.
He also speaks openly about the battles with addiction and how he has managed to overcome them to become one of the world’s most successful and prolific solo artists of all time.
Elton also tells Graham about the positive effect that fatherhood has had on his life.
Elton said: “The past two years have felt truly monumental for me, and with the release of Rocketman, the Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour and my autobiography coming up, it felt like the perfect opportunity to reflect on it all with Graham. I’ve always enjoyed our catch-ups and this felt like the best yet.”
Graham added: “Like the rest of the nation I'm a massive fan of Sir Elton John's music, but to sit down with him in his home to ask him about his life, career and family was a huge privilege.
"Funny, frank and fearless, I can't wait for people to hear him tell his story."
