Louis Theroux has shared some news about Drinking To Oblivion's Joe Walker


Louis Theroux reduced viewers to tears when his powerful documentary Drinking To Oblivion was broadcast back in April.

The BBC Two programme explored alcohol abuse in Britain, with Louis meeting a number of people who were dangerously addicted.

Viewers who took to Twitter to express their thoughts were particularly moved by the story of 32-year-old alcoholic Joe Walker.

He started drinking to oblivion after a break-up and Louis' documentary presented his struggle in distressing detail.

However, a tweet from Louis will cheer up anyone who watched because Joe has been clean and sober for eight months.

The news was greeted with joy on Twitter.

Hooray for Joe
