More recently, he has written and starred in several documentaries, including his Emmy Award-winning Stephen Fry: The Secret Life of the Manic Depressive.
This year, it was announced Stephen would be presenting the reboot of the quiz show Jeopardy!
Speaking about the show, Stephen said: “In the United States, Jeopardy! is a phenomenon like no other.
“Whenever I’m in America, I do my damnedest to catch it every weekday. The idea of hosting it here in the UK makes me dizzy with delight.
“Such a dedicated quizzing nation as ours will, I hope, welcome this uniquely beguiling and endlessly rewarding game.”
