Filmed in front of a studio audience, the seven-part series is described as "an exciting and eclectic who's who of the great and the good in their respective artistic fields".

"Masterclass is an innovative series and it is the set of interviews I've always wanted to do because you never know what you might discover about an artist and their craft," said Parkinson.

"Their work is spellbinding and I hope the studio audience and Sky Arts viewers will find the demonstrations of their artistic talents as inspiring and thought-provoking as I do."

Other guests lined up for the new series include Simon Russell Beale, dancer Akram Khan, percussionist Dame Evelyn Glennie and classical guitarist Miloš Karadagli.

The show returns on Tuesday, March 18 at 8pm.
