7 Top Celebrity Documentaries and Where You Can Watch Them


If you still have books or autobiographies written by your favourite artist then it might be time for a change!

The past couple of years have seen some high profile celebrities release documentaries or doc-series giving us a bigger picture of what they’re doing off away from the stage.

We’ve put together a list of these you have to watch, as well as where you can find them and how much time you’ll have to allocate if you want to have a celebrity binge watching weekend!
