Hugh Laurie says it is difficult to cross over from a successful acting career into the world of music but the actor says music is his "first love".

In his debut album, Let them Talk, Laurie travelled to New Orleans to record sessions with Sir Tom Jones and his hero Dr John.

Laurie told BBC Breakfast he wept after recording a track with Dr John.
